Health, safety, security and the environment (HSSE)

At Mubadala Petroleum, the absolute priority in all our activities is the health and safety of our employees, and all those involved in or impacted by our operations. We continuously seek to improve our health, safety, security and environmental (HSSE) performance and foster a culture that encourages collective and personal responsibility. 

All Mubadala Petroleum employees and contractors must perform their work with diligence and have regard for the integrity of our assets, the health and safety of persons affected by their work, and the impact to the environment. Everyone is empowered to intervene and stop any unsafe acts or address any unsafe conditions they observe. 

We have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to HSSE by providing market leading resources at all levels and ensuring policies and procedures are properly executed. By placing HSSE management processes at the center of our operations, we aim to eliminate or reduce business loss. Our processes allow for potential risks or hazards to be identified and mitigated at the outset of every operation. This results in an enhanced business performance, where operational incidents are minimized, and ultimately a safer working environment is created for everyone associated with our operations. 

Over the past several years, we have delivered an excellent HSSE performance through continuous development, drilling and production operations. In benchmarking against other oil and gas companies represented in the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) annual HSE reports, our performance has been consistently higher than the industry average, positioned in the top quartile.

Our operations in Thailand:

  • Jasmine stands at 3.1 million man-hours without lost time injury (LTI) 
  • Manora stands at 6.3 million man-hours without LTI (including 4,5 million during development and 1.8 million since start of production)
  • Nong Yao stands at 0.4 million man-hours without LTI

In Indonesia, Ruby stands at over 2.6 million man-hours without LTI since August 2013.

Malaysia has over 2 million man-hours without LTI since start of our activities in 2010.


Furthermore, our performance has also been recognized by the authorities in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia:

Thailand in 2015 and 2016:

  • 2015 Ministry of Energy SHE award for Manora;
  • 2016 Ministry of Energy OSHEM award for Nong Yao
Indonesia in 2017:

Malaysia in 2017: 
  • Excellent MPM Award (E.M.A.S) for 3 years in category >200k – 1 million annual man-hours

All of our production operations in Thailand and Indonesia have been accredited and annually recertified to two major international standards: ISO 14001 Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 for Occupational Health and Safety:

  • Thailand: Jasmine since 2010, Manora since 2016 and Nong Yao since 2017
  • Indonesia: Ruby since 2015

In addition, our Thailand operations also received the ISO 9001 certification in 2018. 

Our operations not only meet local and international standards but in many cases exceed these standards. To protect the environment as much as possible we have our own Environmental Management Standard.

Asset Integrity

Asset Integrity is an important part of our HSSE focus to maximize our achievements, as we believe it is vital that all of our facilities adhere to, and where possible exceed, the highest design, construction, operational and maintenance standards. Such standards are applied throughout the life cycle of the project. To achieve this, we have implemented an asset integrity management program at all of our operational sites and projects. This program aims to ensure the technical integrity of our facilities, including processing systems, pipelines and platform structures. 

In the years ahead, Mubadala Petroleum intends to continue its outstanding achievements to date, and to be at the forefront of HSSE best practice. The testing and deploying of new technologies will assist with data collection, performance monitoring and reporting, and this will ultimately further increase the safety of our operations and environmental performance.
