Strengthening Resilience: Prime Energy's Crisis Management Capability Program
Prime Energy Resources Development BV, a major oil and gas player, engaged us to build crisis management capabilities for their recently acquired gas platform in the Philippines. The gas platform is a critical infrastructure that contributes about 20% of the electricity requirements in the country.
Prime Energy Resources Development BV is a leading energy company specialising in oil and gas exploration and production. They recently acquired the Malampaya gas platform in the Philippines. They recognised the importance of effective crisis management to ensure the safety of the platform and the nearby community.
With this primary focus in mind, Prime Energy needed a partner to help them build and test their crisis management capabilities. Our proven track record and expertise in incident and crisis management, combined with our extensive experience in the oil and gas industry, made us the ideal choice.
How OSRL Assisted
We worked with Prime Energy to develop a Crisis Management Program consisting of three phases:
- Crisis Management Plan (CMP) development
- Crisis Management Workshop and Training
- Biannual tabletop exercises to prepare for potential crisis events
We completed the CMP development phase in October 2022 and the Workshop and Training phase in January 2023. The Workshop and Training included two tabletop exercises involving a ruptured gas pipeline resulting in a fire in the nearby community and terrorist activities at the gas platform. The third phase of biannual tabletop exercises will continue until the first quarter of 2025.
The workshop and training received overwhelmingly positive feedback, with participants citing the excellence of the training course and the highly skilled trainers. The CMT gained a deeper understanding of the crisis management process and their roles during a crisis. Seeing Prime Energy implement its CMP during the tabletop exercises was a pleasure.
The Prime Energy Managing Director was very pleased and satisfied with the delivery and result of the Workshop and Training, indicating his full support for the third phase of the program.
We are committed to supporting Prime Energy's journey to build its crisis management capabilities. The program's third phase will include scenarios involving collaboration between the Incident Management Team (IMT) and CMT and with external agencies such as the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).
