ENGIE E&P Norge, part of the ENGIE Group
ENGIE E&P Norge performs exploration and production activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The ENGIE Group provides efficient solutions based on expertise in renewable energy, energy efficiency and liquefied natural gas. The company has a clear commitment to green and sustainable operations and has developed the businesses around a model based on responsible growth.
In meeting environmental requirements implemented by the Norwegian Environment Agency ENGIE E&P Norge was required to:
- Reduce emissions as much as possible without unreasonable costs
- Implement an energy management system for continuous, systematic and objective evaluation to achieve the best possible energy performance
ENGIE E&P Norge therefore contracted Lloyd’s Register to help develop and implement a bespoke energy management system to be applied at their operatorship of the Gjøa field - and down the line at other facilities on the
Norwegian Continental Shelf. The energy management system was to be integrated with the existing management system and follow the principles and methods set by the standard for energy management, ISO 50001.
How Lloyd’s Register helped
In working closely with ENGIE E&P Norge and drawing on our strong cross-disciplinary expertise, we established a solid foundation for systematic energy management based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach.
We developed an overview of the current energy consumption and set the basis for future periodic reviews. This allowed us to identify opportunities for improvement and establish a series of objectives.
An interdisciplinary energy management group was established and other key roles identified. A manual was then prepared compiling the different elements of the energy management structure.
Project phases included
- Getting to know the existing management system
- Understanding the organisation; culture, values, hierarchies, etc.
- Engaging management and creating awareness
- Gap analysis of existing business processes and ISO 50001 requirements
- Identification and engagement of stakeholders
- Establishment of management scope and focus areas
- Performance of energy review, including data collection, definition of parameters, etc.
- Establishment of energy related responsibilities and requirements
- Organising workshops concerning energy monitoring, ambitions, opportunities for improvement, etc.
- Documenting business rules, role descriptions, forms for energy reviews & action plan
- Preparing Energy Management Manual
- Identifying opportunities for continuous improvement and further
Following our successful collaboration, ENGIE E&P Norge was now in a strong position to make further improvements to their environmental performance.
Looking ahead, these improvements are expected to bring a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, cost-efficiency, and improved reputation and market positioning - thus clearly accentuating the benefits attained through systematic energy management.
