Water Performance

Fresh water consumption across domestic process and non-process operating units decreased by 17% or 8.50 m3 in 2011 compared to the preceding year. The reduction, which is equivalent of 3,381 Olympic-sized swimming pools, was due to water use optimisation including improved condensate recovery, cooling water recirculation cycles and wastewater recycling.
To manage risks, PETRONAS has established a risk factor on fresh water availability based on current operational water demand and the capacity of supply infrastructure to meet it. We have also developed a technical standard on the development of site-specific water conservation plans encompassing a water audit, best practices on water use optimisation and an economic evaluation of water saving opportunities.
