1...................................INTRODUCTION TO IMPACT ASSESSMENT


An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) means an examination, analysis and assessment of potential environmental impacts of new projects and major modifications of existing operations, with a view to ensure environmentally sound and sustainable development. In the EIA process all relevant significant environmental issues must be identified and duly addressed. Likewise, the possible impacts on employees, neighbouring communities and continued operation of ADNOC Group facilities must be addressed by including Health and Safety issues. This Health, Safety and Environmental Impact Assessment (HSEIA) will provide a true evaluation of all project Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) aspects. All efforts must be made to identify these issues at the conceptual stage of the project. For new projects it must be determined whether or not a project will require a complete HSEIA or be deemed deminimis. If assessed deminimis, it may proceed with the approval of the Group or Affiliate Company HSE Manager/Department Head. Otherwise, for those major, new projects an HSEIA will be required. The screening process to make a deminimis determination is based mostly on environmental impact assessment criteria. For such deminimis projects it is presumed that the existing company Occupational Health, Safety and Community Awareness Programs are sufficient. However, if the project fails the deminimis screening criteria and is deemed to be a major project, a full HSEIA is required. This issue of deminimis determination and the threshold values for the determination will allow flexibility while complying with the impact assessment requirement of Law Number 1 of 1997 on the revision of Law Number 4 of 1996 on the Establishment of Environment and Natural Life Research and Development Authority (ENLRDA). Likewise, it will satisfy the U.A.E. Federal Environment Agency (FEA) requirements. The deminimis and new project criteria are described below in this document.

2..............................................................REQUIREMENTS FOR HSEIA


Unless otherwise specifically stated in this guideline: A Health, Safety and Environmental Impact Assessment (HSEIA) will be required for new hydrocarbon related projects and projects involving modifications to existing operations. This will include, for ADNOC, its Group Companies and Affiliates, at least the following: a) b) c) d) Seismic surveys Exploration drilling Field development Well testing

HSEIAs are to be prepared for each of the four phases of a project. Each phase may be considered separately or two or more phases combined into an integrated document. Each HSEIA phase must be satisfactorily completed and approved before the project may proceed. It is intended that Phase I must be approved before the project moves to final design and tender. Phase II must be approved before construction starts. Phase III should be approved before construction starts and must be approved before operations begin. Phase IV which comes at the end of a projects life should be addressed and approved before shutdown. Planning must allow for the time required to accomplish the HSEIA preparation, review and approval by ADNOC. For some projects it may be necessary for the Abu Dhabi ENLRDA and /or FEA, as appropriate to review and approve the HSEIA. The HSEIA is to be prepared by a third party that is independent of the project contractor or sub-contractor. This independent contractor should not be hired by the project contractor. The HSEIA Contractor should be hired directly by the Operating Company or Projects Directorate to avoid any conflict of interest. Projects addressed in previously approved HSEIAs or that are deemed deminimis (not major) as described in Section 4 may be exempted from this process.

3...................................................................................PROJECT PHASES
For the purpose expressed in this document, it should be considered that a project consists of four stages. These are termed as Phase I, Phase II, Phase III and Phase IV. These phases describe certain time periods during the conception, design, tender, construction, operation, decommissioning and site restoration of a project. Phase I: Conceptual Design and FEED stage (Front End Engineering and Design) of the project - included is all work up to the decision to go to final design and/or tender for the project. The Phase I HSEIA must be approved before the project may proceed to Phase II. Phase II: Construction phase of the project - commences at the end of the FEED stage and encompasses tender and award, mobilisation, construction, performance testing, acceptance of the finished project and demobilisation of contractor. The Phase II HSEIA must be approved before the actual start of construction. Phase III: Operational phase of a project - commences at acceptance from contractor of finished project for continuous operation. The Phase III HSEIA should be approved before construction starts but must be approved before normal operations begin. Phase IV: Shutdown phase of a project - the shutdown, mothballing, decommissioning, and/or removal or discontinuation of an operation, including site restoration. The Phase IV HSEIA should be approved before such decommissioning starts. Phase IV should be addressed in the Phase I and Phase II HSEIAs to assure the design out of decommissioning and site restoration issues. By addressing Phase IV up front, total project costs can be evaluated.

4........................................................DEMINIMIS DETERMINATIONS
For purposes of this section a project may be deemed to have no impacts or to have minimal impacts. Such projects will be termed deminimis and will not require a HSEIA. To qualify for a deminimis determination a project must meet the following conditions of sub-sections 4.1 to 4.5. A project can be deemed to have no impact if all of the conditions of subsections 4.1 and 4.3 are met. A project can be deemed to have deminimis impact if all of the conditions of subsections 4.2 and 4.3 are met. A project can be deemed to have deminimis impacts if a procedure is developed, approved by ADNOC Group HSE Committee, and the procedure, which is to be strictly followed, is listed in subsection 4.4.

4.1.......................................................................................................................No Impact
4.1.1. There will be no change in the quantity or quality of existing emissions, effluents, or wastes will not result from the operational phase of the project. An increase in the amount or a change in the type or components of the discharges will be considered new. 4.1.2. No new infrastructure such as building, rebuilding or enlarging of camps, utilities, government services, roads, etc. will be required. [This does not include routine maintenance and refurbishment.] 4.1.3. All criteria of the ADNOC HSE Guidelines must be met for discharges to the air, land, surface water and groundwater during the project phase.

4.2.................................................................................Deminimis Impact Determination


4.2.1.........................................................................................................Construction
During construction, reconstruction, plant turnarounds and start-up of a project that will create new emissions, effluents or wastes, the discharges to the air (excluding exhaust emission from construction vehicles), land, surface water or ground water shall not exceed: 4.2.1.1.
