The client, a midstream oil and gas logistics company, had undergone a major reorganization, affecting the way EHS functions were being delivered throughout the corporate, regional, and local organization. Policies and procedures for EHS were being decentralized resulting in a delegation of responsibilities across corporate, regional, and operational staff. In an effort to attain consistency and continuity with the corporate EHS program(s), the client required an evolution of their EHS standard operating procedures to ensure EHS compliance. The client’s environmental manual existed as one document comprising a ‘system’ of manuals. The EHS business challenge was to update the environmental manual to current business cultural needs along with closing any gaps in their programs.
Antea Group was competitively awarded the project. Our client-focused solution met the client’s short-term needs and provided programmatic flexibility for future program evolution and streamlined integration of program advancements. Antea Group’s project team consisted of a group of EHS professionals that were selected based upon their client management skills, project management strengths, industry knowledge, and subject matter expertise. Our centralized program management provided a stable but dynamic framework with client access to subject matter experts that facilitated collaboration to achieve their corporate program goals. Phase I: The Antea Group team completed the update of the client’s corporate environmental manual, including new subject matter program development in areas of EHS interest and risk priority. Phase II: The Antea Group team completed a corporate EHS gap analysis to identify deficiencies, determine strengths and weaknesses and to provide an assessment of their EHS culture. The results of the gap analysis were utilized to prioritize areas of EHS risk for future program development.
The client benefited in several ways:
- Their corporate environmental manual was now updated and expanded to meet current industry standards.
- Once the corporate environmental management system gap analysis was completed, it provided corporate EHS insights into their program and helped them establish prioritizations for future development.
- The client now had corporate initiative validation for fiscal investments.
