Reflecting its longstanding commitment to environmental protection, the Company also implemented the EPA’s Natural Gas Star Program before the program was instituted, largely eliminating emissions targeted by the program. In November 2000, Murphy became a formal partner in this program. In Ecuador, Murphy and its business partners developed an Environmental Management Program and state-of-the-art technology to protect a unique and fragile rain forest ecosystem, minimizing the impact of the facility during construction and operation.
In 2008 Murphy completed a 75 mile pipeline from its Kikeh field operation that has resulted in capturing and processing gas emissions resulting in a 48% reduction of CO2 equivalent emission.
In 2009 Murphy completed the first in the world floating, drilling, production, storage and off-loading (PDPSO) facility; currently being utilized in the Congo area.
