Oil, Gas and Petrochemicals

Oil, gas and petrochemical companies are focused on striking a balance between improving the compatibility of their operations with the environment, while economically developing energy resources and supplying high quality products. The pressure to work with the public, government and various other stakeholders in their supply chain to use natural resources in an environmentally responsible manner while protecting the health and safety of employees and the public can be overwhelming. 3E® provides a comprehensive suite of products and services that can support compliance challenges ranging from ensuring the safe and compliant production of finished products, to supporting employee safety programs. 

"The 3E team has been instrumental in helping us understand what we need to deliver with our MSDS / SDSs. Since the regulations are constantly changing, we greatly appreciate their relevant and expert support and advice."

- Allen Schmit, Global Manager of Product Regulatory Support, Shell 

Ensure the Safety of Your Products

While compliance affects the entire manufacturing organization, typically only a few individuals fully understand and are accountable for ensuring requirements are met. Product compliance information and data usually exists in silos, spread across several business units throughout the organization. 3E provides EH&S and regulatory professionals with powerful and robust tools for a number of compliance related activities, including:

  • Research the EH&S effectiveness of raw materials and finished products
  • Research how substances used are regulated in the markets in which you manufacture and sell your products
  • Identify the potential existence of banned chemicals / chemicals of concern in your inventory
  • Analyze the chemical makeup of products to identify less hazardous alternatives
  • Produce MSDS / SDSs and labels for finished products, including exposure scenarios and extended MSDS / SDSs
  • Automated push distribution of MSDS / SDSs to downstream users and customers
  • Ensure downstream customers receive / have access to your products' MSDS / SDSs and emergency response contact information
  • Facilitate appropriate classification or re-classification and labeling of substances to comply with GHS / CLP

Protecting Employees, Operators and Downstream Customers

Not only do oil, gas and petrochemical companies need to ensure the safety of their finished products, but the safety of their employees and operators who are handling chemicals or hazardous substances in the workplace as well. In addition, regulatory professionals find value in having access to the information found on their raw material MSDS / SDSs when the time comes to document everything that goes into their finished products.

3E can alleviate much of the burden of maintaining vendor MSDS / SDS data by offering a highly secure web-based application with supporting services that include obtaining, indexing and maintaining MSDS / SDSs for all chemicals used in the manufacturing process. 

Alternatively, 3E can feed robust document sets, including MSDS / SDS, compliance declarations, technical data sheets and material declarations directly into an existing EH&S, procurement, EMIS, or other system such as SAP, Enablon or other OTC or custom system, which can significantly streamline the management of chemical data by centralizing it into a single repository. Centralizing data saves valuable time, increases efficiency and ensures consistency across the entire organization.

Ensure Compliant Transport

As products are transported up and down the supply chain, ensuring compliance can be a challenge, especially for global companies. 3E can help you ensure products can be shipped using a preferred mode of transport or provide guidance to employees to ensure proper use of markings, labels and documentation. 3E can provide an emergency contact phone number to publish on your MSDS / SDSs or provide a phone number to your employees to call in the event of a spill or exposure.
