Health, Safety and Environment
The Company’s onshore operations are regulated by numerous agencies and authorities, principally the Department of Mines, Industry, Resources and Safety (DMIRS) under the Petroleum and Geothermal Energy Resources Act 1967 (PGER Act) and the Petroleum Pipelines Act 1969 and associated regulations. Other regulators include the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) under the Rights and Water and Irrigation Act 1914 and the Environmental Protection Act 1986 and a number of other agencies and regulations.
Health, safety and environmental approvals from the various agencies are required to be in place prior to undertaking any petroleum activities. During all activities, the Company implements a structured internal environmental audit process to identify opportunities for improvement and measurement of HSE performance. Regular external audits and inspections are also undertaken by regulatory agencies to measure compliance against HSE approvals.
During 2020, Buru Energy was not aware of any material non-compliance in relation to health safety or environmental legislation.
