Intertek certifies Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company for energy management

Abu Dhabi - Intertek, a Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide announced it has awarded Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Co (EGAS) with the globally-recognised ISO 50001 certification for Energy Management Systems. EGAS is one of the first holding companies in the Egyptian oil and gas sector to be awarded with this recognition for its energy conservation business.

ISO 50001 is a systematic framework that helps organisations manage energy and address their environmental impact, conserve resources, and improve the bottom line through efficient energy management. The standard provides requirements for a systematic, data driven and facts-based process, focused on improving energy performance. ISO 50001 promotes the adoption of energy management best practices and reinforces good energy management behaviours.

The award for Energy Management Systems was presented by Hussein El Gendy, General Manager at Intertek Egypt, to Engineer Yaseen Mohammed, Vice Chairman of Operations and Natural Gas Grids at EGAS, at an official handover ceremony.

Hany El Rouby, General Manager of Energy Conservation of EGAS, said: “Being awarded with the certification for Energy Management Systems is a testament to our continued commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability. We have been working on reducing our energy consumption and raising awareness among our employees since 2011, in line with recommendations from the Ministry of Petroleum. Achieving this certification proves we have advanced all our existing procedures and means we will be able to lead the way for our subsidiaries when it comes to having an efficient energy management system in place. As a result, we will be able to ensure that our energy consumption is aligned with our overall commitment to Egypt’s Vision 2030 for sustainability. We would like to thank Intertek’s auditing team for its cooperation and high level of support throughout the certification process. We would also like to thank all EGAS departments for their productive cooperation.”

Hussein El Gendy, General Manager at Intertek Egypt, congratulated Egyptian Natural Gas Holding for the achievement: “The steps EGAS took to reach certification show outstanding dedication to fulfil the demanding objectives outlined under ISO 50001 and a real commitment to energy saving.. It takes a lot of dedication and requires a good awareness across the entire team to complete this journey. Our lead auditors witnessed a highly motivated team effort from EGAS throughout the certification process and were impressed by the efficiency with which the energy management system was implemented and continuously improved in all areas. By implementing Energy Management Systems, EGAS will be able to reduce energy consumption and costs throughout the supply chain, as well as the impact on the environment.”
