At First Hydrocarbon Nigeria, we have a comprehensive HSES (Health, Safety, Environment, and Social) policy in compliance with high operating standards. Implemented through our HSES management system, we seek progressive performance improvements in accordance with Section 2 of the Environmental Impact Assessment Act (“EIAA”) which precludes undertaking certain projects or activities without prior early stage consideration, of its environmental effects.
In determining the environmental effect of any activity, the EIAA provides that the relevant significant environmental issues should be identified and considered. The Environmental Impact Assessment report is submitted to the Nigerian Environmental Impact Assessment Agency for review.
We prioritise HSES consideration along with other key business drivers and we expect our partners and contractors to operate to HSES standards consistent with ours.
