Results of ARPEL reports ON SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE BENCHMARKING

  • The results of the last two annual reports on safety and environmental performance benchmarking are available to ARPEL members on the website of the Association. In 1997, ARPEL began to collect information on safety from its member companies in order to measure, compare and identify opportunities for improvement to achieve operational excellence.

    The last report, developed with performance data collected from member companies in 2014, contains statistics of 21 companies in Latin America and the Caribbean, covering 965 thousand employees and 2,222 million hours worked.

    This report analyzes four reactive indicators (total incidents, severity, frequency of incidents with lost days and fatalities) and two proactive indicators (safety training and planned task observations), with open data by line of business (E&P, refining, pipelines, distribution and others) and by category (companies and contractors), also including historical data.

    The full report may be accessed at: https://arpel.org/library/publication/411/

    In order to prevent and reduce fatal and high-potential incidents, ARPEL has made a space for exchange of information available only to member companies on its webpage. This section contains the conditions, causes, failures, and lessons learned from safety incidents that have been reported by companies anonymously from 2010 to date.

    For its part, the report on environmental performance benchmarking collects data for 2014 of 18 companies from 13 countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela.

    For this report, data reported included 30,877 production wells, 49,745 kilometers of pipelines, 127 terminals and 35 refineries. The data represent 54% of liquid hydrocarbon production, 52% of gas production and 79% of refining activities in Latin America and the Caribbean.

    This report was started in 2008 and analyzes indicators on: oil spills in water and on the ground; discharges, re-injection and hydrocarbon concentration in production water; hydrocarbons discharged as effluents from processes; disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste; freshwater consumption and abstraction.
