Health Safety & Environmental (HSE)

Biva Shipping B.V. robust health, safety and environmental (HSE) culture is driven by our uncompromised values. Biva Shipping B.V. approaches HSE from a combination of bedrock principles and extensive knowledge obtained over many decades of experience. Safety is Biva Shipping B.V. first Core Value. Fluor is committed to developing a caring, preventive safety culture across our organization. Safety drives the actions of every employee at every location, every day. Our people deserve it. Our clients demand it. Our performance depends on it.

The Biva Shipping B.V. team routinely works with federal agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency, Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, as well as the state and local agencies in our areas of operation. On each project, Biva Shipping B.V. strives to minimize impacts to the air, land and water. We work with experts from many scientific fields including, archaeology, wetlands and endangered species to evaluate potential projects and to avoid impacts to the natural environment. We then work with those same experts during the construction and operation of our projects to ensure our activities are in accordance with environmental regulations. When impacts are unavoidable, we work with local, state and federal officials to plan and permit our facilities. Once in operation, we routinely monitor and manage the integrity of our storage.

The Air We Breathe

All living things need air. At Biva Shipping B.V., we ensure our facilities meet or exceed air emission requirements set by the Environmental Protection Agency and state environmental programs. We routinely audit and monitor our operations to ensure our air emission controls are operational and in compliance with regulations. In March 2014, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service announced the lesser prairie chicken met the definition of a threatened and endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. Since SemGroup operates in areas determined to be critical habitat to this species, Biva Shipping B.V. is supporting efforts to preserve its habitat. Biva Shipping B.V. is proud to be participating in two United States Fish and Wildlife Service approved conservation plans: the Range Wide Conservation Plan and the Range-wide Oil and Gas Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances. In conjunction with the plans, Biva Shipping B.V. has committed financial resources to support the preservation of critical habitat in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas and has implemented various habitat conservation measures during construction, operation and maintenance of our facilities.
