Our environment is more than just our responsibility, it is our legacy. Banagas is committed to taking all necessary measures and precautions to prevent damage to the environment and comply with all environmental legislation and regulations enacted in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This is reflected by the Company’s unwavering focus towards transparency in monitoring environmental parameters, greening the supply chain through green procurement, and in implementing life cycle assessments.
The Commitment to pollution prevention was formalized with the attainment of the ISO 14001 certification. In order to counter the effects of environmental pollution, the emission measurements from the stacks at Banagas facilities are being monitored regularly under the observation of the Supreme Council for the Environment representatives
Readings are periodically reported to them and a detailed technical study has been performed to evaluate the environmental impacts of any concern caused by Banagas activities.
At every turn Banagas has been a company observing it's duty to preserving and improving it's environment through a number of environmental action campaigns. One of the most applauded and successful is this planting of 2,000 trees in the vicinity of Banagas facilities in the Bahrain Oil Field in support of the National Campaign to Protect the Environment.
Banagas was the first Company in Bahrain to eliminate the use of halons in firefighting systems, replacing them with more environmental friendly ozone-protective products, pursuant to the resolutions of the Montreal Protocol to which Bahrain is signatory.
Banagas successfully managed to reduce the NOx level from the exhaust of the gas turbines at Compressor Stations following the installation of Lean Head End modifications to their combustion systems liners meeting regulations enacted in the Kingdom of Bahrain's legislation.
Efforts to minimize any negative impact to the environment from Company operations continue.
