The best approach to operational HSE management in the oil and gas industry is prevention. Mapping a path to preparedness with plans for evacuations, containment, and mitigation can save lives and property in an emergency. Advanced maps and spatial analysis reveal vulnerabilities that leaders can proactively address. Knowing where people and assets are located in real time helps minimize risk if an emergency occurs.

Health and safety

Health and safety processes generate large quantities of data. The data originates from incidents, inspections, noise and air quality monitoring, driving logs, and other sources that are often prone to error and time-consuming and costly to manage. GIS enables digital workflows to improve collection, reduce errors, and drive new analytics and insights from this data for safer, more efficient operations.

Environment and biodiversity

Energy companies strive to find ways to meet the public demand for low-cost energy products and maintain corporate social and environmental responsibility, including biodiversity protection. Many leading companies are realizing strategic, operational, and financial benefits by including biodiversity conservation in their decision-making, policies, and operations. GIS can help.

Net-zero carbon emissions

The number of companies publicly committing to reducing carbon emissions has become a barometer for corporate awareness about the climate change threat. Business leaders are rewriting strategies around sustainability and employing advanced technology like GIS to analyze data on how their operations contribute to greenhouse gas production and associated carbon emissions.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR)

Whether your CSR initiatives are environmental, philanthropic, ethical, economic, or a mix of each, GIS provides a robust platform to enable your efforts. From energy transmission and emissions reporting to racial equity and any CSR effort, GIS provides a data management, analytics, and reporting communications platform to engage stakeholders internally or externally via easy-to-understand maps and reports.

Emergency response

Understand the risks and respond in real time. In today's complex world, emergency teams must be better informed and flexible at all points during a response effort. Successfully planning for and responding to growing threats requires agility and effective communication. Explore configurable tools for robust situational awareness, rapid impact analysis, deploying resources, and communicating with the public.
