Anadarko’s Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) activities are conducted in accordance with the Pathway to Excellence (P2e) -- a management system framework that defines company-wide requirements designed to achieve superior performance and safeguarding of the environment and communities in which we work. Each P2e requirement is structured with periodic assessments regarding the degree of implementation, which may trigger subsequent modifications for continuous improvement. Performance and progress are assessed with periodic audits and data management from which feedback can be continually incorporated and targets adjusted.
Operations-Specific Management Systems
More specifically, we developed and continue to utilize the Anadarko Management System (AMS) for all Gulf of Mexico assets, which is required by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement’s (BSEE) Safety and Environmental Management System (SEMS) regulations.
Built upon our core values, AMS provides the framework, tools and direction to manage and operate worldwide assets in a manner that protects the health and safety of employees, contractors, neighboring communities, customers, partners and the environment in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. AMS consists of 10 major elements for which it features a series of documents detailing tasks, roles and responsibilities.
Furthermore, AMS is an influencing component of the Anadarko International Management System (AIMS), which provides a systemic and coordinated approach for our international assets to develop, review, and implement programs, requirements, processes, and guidelines to comply with and conform to regulatory, industry and Anadarko’s standards and requirements.
Similarly, our U.S. Onshore assets comply with the applicable requirements Process Safety Management (PSM) regulated by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). This program establishes 14 elements to ensure proper design, safe operations, emergency response preparedness, safety of employees and contractors as well as a structured audit program.
At the project level, Anadarko conducts Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessments (ESHIA) as applicable. These comprehensive assessments detail potential benefits and impacts to a region from our presence, and the monitoring and/or mitigation of impacts throughout the course of the project. Identified potential impacts or risks to the projects are addressed through detailed action plans, often involving multi-disciplinary teams to manage, audit and evaluate change throughout the project.
