Gibson Energy COVID-19 Update

As the current COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, Gibson Energy has been proactive and prudent in our planning, response and actions related to this risk. Based on our established Emergency Response Plans, we have stood up a multidisciplinary team of representatives from across our business to manage the response through the Incident Command System (ICS), reporting directly to Gibson Energy’s executive team. Our ICS response team have planned for various scenarios to ensure the safety of our people and the continuity of our business.

Our Planning/Response Priorities are:

  1. Health and Safety of Workforce
  2. Continuity of our Operations
  3. Frequent Communications and Transparency

Health and Safety

To ensure the health and safety of all our workforce, we have implemented the following restrictions and guidelines (aligning with health authorities and government recommendations):

  • Banning of all non-essential business travel (including travel to and from our worksites).
  • Encouraging those individuals with the ability to work remotely to do so where possible.
  • Encouraging meetings with external stakeholders to leverage virtual capabilities such as tele-conferencing and WebEx instead of hosting in-person meetings.
  • Promoting heightened awareness and vigilance; social distancing and hygiene and implementing more stringent cleaning protocols.
  • Implementing the following travel and self-isolation requirements:
    • An individual that has travelled outside their country of residence will be required to self-isolate for 14 days; and
    • Individuals that are experiencing any symptoms of illness (particularly those common to COVID-19, including coughing, respiratory distress or fever), or have a household member experiencing these symptoms, have been asked to not come to work and/or our facilities and any that do may be denied access.

Continuity of Operations

  • Our Business Continuity Plans for our operations and critical corporate functions have been enacted and implemented to ensure the continued delivery of critical services and operations.
  • Our IT Department has worked diligently to ensure our network capabilities, technology resources and virtual capacity are sustainable for remote work.

Frequent Communications and Transparency

  • Our ICS response team and executives have ensured that our workforce is provided frequent and timely updates on COVID-19 and any new information is incorporated into our continuity plan.

In sum, we have taken the necessary steps to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our customers and other stakeholders and look forward to continuing to do so with the same commitment as we have always had.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates as appropriate.
