Operations Safety

We are proud of our outstanding HSE performance, and our record of no fatality, no multiple LTI (lost-time injury) accident or no major oil spill incidents for several decades.

Safety Incident Statistics for 2011 - 2015

Each stage of oil and gas operation presents different HSE risks. We assess these at the outset of each operation through processes such as a safety case, an operations program, a safety management system bridging document, an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA), an emergency response plan, an oil spill response plan and various HSE audits and/or inspections.

Identified HSE risks are communicated to all personnel working at our operations sites through HSE awareness training, HSE meetings at operations sites and/or tool box meetings. The risks are then mitigated by application of operational control tools such as STOP (Safety Training Observation Program) cards, job safety analysis and/or permit-to-work measures.

Senior management at each branch office assess the competency of individual staff members working on operations sites and work out necessary HSE trainings for them to perform their assigned tasks safely and with minimal environmental impact.

JX Nippon is a proud shareholder of Abu Dhabi Oil Co Ltd (Japan), which operates offshore oil fields such as the Mubarraz Oil Field in the United Arab Emirates. This company, too, has received many HSE awards from the state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). In 2015 the company won ADNOC's HSE Performance Award for its HSE contributions throughout the year. Another standout achievement was being named supreme winner in the 2000 HSE Awards for its Sour Gas Injection and Zero Gas Flaring Project.

In 2014 we introduced our own In-house Safety Operation Awards to reaffirm our commitment to safety operations and to further promote safety at company worksites. Recognition was given to five branch offices who achieved Zero LTI during 2014.
