Northern is committed to setting a positive and responsible example to the protection of the environment in the areas in which we operate to minimise any adverse effects of our business. A robust environmental performance is imperative to maintaining our solid reputation as a responsible operator and our ability to generate shareholder value.
We are conscious of the impact to the environment that oil and gas activity can have and to mitigate the risk we conduct comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessments (“EIA”) before operational activity commences. These ensure compliance with industry standards and applicable local and federal guidelines and regulations. By identifying and planning possible issues before operations commence we are able to protect the environment during the works and restore the area as appropriate upon completion of our activities, thus ensuring minimal impact on the local community.
All personnel are responsible for improving the performance of the environmental policy objective of reducing our impact upon the environment.
