The operation of the environmental management system according to the PN-EN ISO 14,001 standard is based on the identification of environmental aspects of the organisation. Streamlining this area is one of the key issues required for carrying out analyses at the PGNiG Group and selecting areas of particular interest to the oil and gas industry in terms of environmental protection.

Most of the technological processes involve noise emission to the environment, and in the case of Geofizyka Toruń – also vibrations.

One of the most frequent material environmental aspects is emission of air pollutants. It occurs both under normal conditions and in emergency situations, as a result of fuel combustion by vehicle engines, industrial machinery and boilers. Emission of particulates and gases, such as nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and carbon oxides, have been identified as a key environmental aspect at PGNiG TERMIKA, which produces electricity and heat from coal, natural gas and biomass. Emission of natural gas, including gas containing sulfur compounds, may occur in emergency situations, such as leaking heads or pipelines, or outbursts.

Contaminated soil and groundwater are also frequently identified as a significant environmental aspect. Its occurrence may be explained by the presence of contaminants generated in past activities, as well as spills/leaks of petroleum or hazardous substances during drilling and other technological processes, operation of machinery and equipment, or leaks from storage tanks or pipelines.
