Storengy is the leading operator of underground natural gas storage sites in Europe and fourth largest worldwide.(www.storengy.com/fr/). 21 sites are operational in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Storengy puts the highest priority on the safety and security of its employees, the companies that work on its sites, and nearby residents while also respecting the environment, energy efficiency and customer satisfaction.
A willingness to establish constructive relationships with all of its clients and relevant stakeholders is part of its commitment to the principles of the ENGIE Group and its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policies in particular.
Storengy particularly intends to accelerate its continuous process of improvement in the areas of health, security, the environment, quality and energy performance.
STORENGY in France has an integrated Quality, Health-Security, Environment and Major Risks system built around continuous improvement. The system is based on the ISRS (International Safety Rating System) by Det Norske Veritas. ISRS is one of the main systems worldwide for measuring and demonstrating security, environmental, quality and operational performance.
Also, storage sites are evaluated several times per year by official inspection teams (from the DREAL/DRIEE in France) who inspect the capacity to manage major risks and conformity with the rules of ICPE (Environmental-Grade Equipment).
ENGIE Cofely, which works in various capacities on maintenance and surveillance on Storengy sites, is also developing a safety and security policy aiming for zero accidents.
