We run emergency drills on a regular basis to train for various emergency scenarios. Through these drills, we help keep our employees and facilities in a continual state of preparedness to respond to emergency situations.
Our Emergency Management team conducted multiple Incident Command System (ICS) training and workshop exercises in 2018 to better prepare our people to respond in the event of an emergency. Almost 100 personnel participated. The team also conducted several after action reviews in 2018 to ensure that lessons learned are applied effectively to our emergency response preparations.
In 2018, we held “table-top” drills in onshore Texas, offshore Gulf of Mexico and the Republic of Cyprus. We conducted live drills in the DJ Basin, Equatorial Guinea and Israel:
- In the DJ Basin, we organized an unannounced emergency response drill simulating a fire at a Noble Midstream Partners facility. The drill measured Noble Midstream Partners’ and Noble Energy’s incident management capabilities and business continuity plans.
- In Equatorial Guinea, we participated in a regional oil spill exercise and in a mass casualty exercise with the local hospital and search and rescue provider simulating a helicopter water landing.
- In the Eastern Mediterranean, we participated in the government of Israel’s tier II offshore oil spill exercise.
