Risk management for all 175 onshore and offshore NAM oil and gas facilities
Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) - the joint venture between Shell and ExxonMobil - has renewed and extended its Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) contract with Royal HaskoningDHV. The three year contract covers risk above the ground on all NAM’s 175 onshore and offshore oil and gas exploration and production sites.


The multi-million euro contract encompasses all of NAM’s offshore and onshore assets in the Netherlands and the North Sea area. Royal HaskoningDHV will support NAM to achieve the safest, most efficient and sustainable gas exploration and production.

NAM is the leading producer of natural gas in the Netherlands. Mr Eric Dorenbos, NAM’s HSE Regulatory Affairs Manager, said: "Royal HaskoningDHV's understanding of the oil and gas industry and strong presence in the north of the Netherlands means they understand local sensitivities. They have acquired extensive knowledge of NAM's assets and operations over recent years, and demonstrated they are a reliable and trusted partner. For this reason we want to continue our relationship with them and have therefore renewed and extended their contract for a period of three years."

Mr Arthur Groot, Account Manager of the NAM at Royal HaskoningDHV, said: "We are helping NAM to achieve their objectives of conducting their operations in a safe, sustainable and efficient way. Our work will focus on Hazard and Effect Management, Compliance Management and Impact Assessment. This will include preparation of key documents, safety management studies, operation and contingency manuals, technical safety support and legal support."

The delivery of Royal HaskoningDHV's extensive range of HSE services - currently unrivalled in the Netherlands - will help NAM achieve their goals for the next three years and beyond.
