ELNG Completes First Ever Health & Safety Partnership Program with GE O&G

Egyptian Liquified Natural Gas (ELNG), Egypt's largest LNG partnership sponsored by EGAS, EGPC, BG Group, Petronas and Gaz de France, has announced its completion of the first ever Health and Safety (H&S) Partnership Program delivered with GE Oil & Gas Global Services.

Built on ELNG and GE's strong record of health and safety performance, the H&S program has been delivered as a pilot -- the first ever such project to be delivered by GE Oil & Gas at a customer site.

The H&S Partnership Program was established in June 2007 between ELNG and GE Oil & Gas to help consolidate health and safety management at ELNG's Idku LNG plant, east of Alexandria. Today's announcement completes the generation one, two-year phase of this unique H&S Partnership Program.

The program goals were to develop solid synergy between ELNG and GE Oil & Gas health and safety management systems, deliver measureable performance improvements and, ultimately, drive a 'no injury, no accident, H&S excellence' mantra throughout ELNG's culture and operating systems.

An initial baseline on health and safety performance status was conducted and an action plan agreed across nine structural framework's elements. Following implementation, the pilot resulted in improvements across all nine framework's elements -- including top five-star grading for nine categories measured -- resulting in an improved H&S site policy, enhanced levels of employee ownership, ongoing hazard analysis and regulatory compliance monitoring, improved personal protective equipment storage and use at site, stringent motor vehicle safety systems and the implementation of an extensive health and safety inspection and training regime.

Mr. Adnan Z. Abidin, CEO, ELNG, said, "We are delighted with the outcomes of this highly successful Health and Safety Partnership Program for ELNG. The impact has been a significant step-change improvement, embedding the new program right across our business. The success is due to the strong relationship we have developed with GE Oil & Gas over several years. We’re now working to consolidate the results obtained and I'm confident that this phase will also deliver great results."
