Our offshore assets extract oil, gas and formation water from subsea reservoirs.
The water is either re-injected into the reservoir to maintain underground pressure or is cleaned, filtered and then discharged to the sea. All planned discharges are cleaned to meet or exceed local regulations and national standards.
We produce hazardous and non-hazardous waste materials from our global drilling and production operations. We dispose of these materials in accordance with local regulations. They include drill cuttings, used oil, scrap metal, wood, plastic and other materials.
Working with our supply chain, we aim to minimise waste at source and encourage the use of recycled, recyclable and biodegradable materials. We segregate and recycle as much residual waste as possible.
