HSEQ policy

Given the scale and complexity of the Shtokman project, the Company has assumed major commitments to environmental protection and mitigation of potential environmental impacts on the vulnerable and unique ecosystem of the Barents Sea and the shore areas.

Shtokman Development AG environmental policy is to attach paramount importance to environmental issues at all levels within the Company and to ensure compliance with the highest Russian and world safety and environmental standards.

In order to achieve and maintain maximum safety during construction and operation of project facilities of both offshore and onshore infrastructure of the Shtokman project, design, engineering and planning are being meticulously optimized and systematic safety measures are being outlined by the Company.

Meeting the high safety standards

Safety standards will be applied through various means:

  • meticulous engineering and planning
  • use of state-of-the-art equipment
  • use of high-quality materials
  • implementation of a quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) system
  • careful monitoring of construction and operation

Health and Safety

Along with our commitment to prevent pollution and protect the environment, our goals are to provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees and contractors and to care for the health and safety of the public. Shtokman has integrated the management of HSEQ policy into its overall Company Management System. This consists of the HSEQ Policy and the HSEQ Management System, which defines the principles, standards, and procedures for implementing HSEQ during the planning, construction, commissioning, and operational phases of the project.
