Dolphin Drilling, a leading harsh environment drilling contractor, is one of the first companies of its kind to successfully secure the Energy Management System ISO 50001:2018 certification, demonstrating its commitment to addressing energy performance by reducing energy use, energy costs and greenhouse emissions.
ISO 50001 was awarded to Dolphin Drilling following a seamless audit which also covered ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and International Safety Management (ISM) Code requirements for onshore and mobile offshore units. The auditing approach allowed auditors, DNV, to assess the overall effectiveness of the Dolphin Drilling Management System in a holistic manner.
Undertaking this audit approach also reflected Dolphin Drilling’s environmental credentials by reducing the total time (onshore and offshore) required to complete the audits and number of offshore audits required.
Henning Carlsen, Key Account Manager at DNV, commented: “DNV would like to congratulate Dolphin Drilling in achieving ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification, ensuring that the company has a healthy energy management system, reducing energy consumption, environmental impact and increasing profitability. The certification, obtained through Seamless™, proves that Dolphin Drilling is working strategically to reduce the environmental footprint of its operations.”
Bjørnar Iversen, Chief Executive Officer at Dolphin Drilling, said: “This has been a massive team effort by all of our staff, and it is thanks to their hard work that we have gained the ISO 50001 certification and updated our existing certifications.
“This award is a huge step towards reaching our energy management goals. Having undertaken drilling operations since the mid-1960s we have been responsible for a number of ‘firsts’ within the oil and gas industry, and we are delighted to be leading the way today by placing our green credentials at the forefront of our operations.”
Dolphin Drilling has committed to a ‘climate roadmap’, which outlines its contribution to a sustainable future, establishing the work processes and continual improvement initiatives the organisation needs to implement to reduce emissions and meet the overall industry target of net-zero.
