Welcome to Supplying to Centrica Energy
We have pulled together a range of information to help your firm assess how to sell to Centrica Energy including pilot forward workplan 2017 data.
Centrica Energy has onshore facilities at the Barrow terminals and operates its own offshore East Irish Sea gasfields and those for Conoco Philips.It is planning to decommission some facilities.The company also operates a sea support base at the port of Heysham to support its platforms and gas processing terminals.
Centrica is no 1 UK gas producer.It operates over 40 fields
and is a global player in energy development and supply.Current production from the territory is about 500mcfg (million cubic feet of gas), enough to supply to more than two million homes.
Centrica needs a wide range of services and materials required to support, maintain and replace diverse offshore and onshore process plant: Capital equipment, maintenance services, seismic services, outsourced services, consumables, chemicals, components, support services, integrity management, fabric maintenance, inspection, logistics, engineering services, safety.
We spend billions of pounds annually with thousands of suppliers, mostly in the UK and North America. They provide us with a range of products, from central heating boilers to large-scale equipment for our gas exploration operations. We also buy services from outsourced call centres to office support functions such as cleaning, catering and security.
The risks associated with these different types of suppliers are diverse and vary considerably depending on where they are based. We manage these risks through our responsible procurement programme by communicating our standards to suppliers, monitoring their compliance and working with them to improve performance.
We use CR clauses in contracts to ensure suppliers are contractually obliged to meet our standards as set out by our Procurement and Corporate Responsibility Policy for Suppliers PDF (0.16Mb).
Through a partnership with EcoVadis, we require strategic suppliers to undergo corporate responsibility assessments. For more information on our partnership with Ecovadis and the requirements for supplier assessments, see Committing to responsible supply chains.

Monitoring compliance and improving performance.
We believe that working with our suppliers is the best way to achieve lasting and sustainable change in our supply chain. If a supplier is found to be non-compliant with our CR clauses, we agree remediation plans and work with them to achieve the high standards that we expect. We reserve the right to terminate a contract if suppliers fail to implement the improvement plans we recommend
Committing to responsible supply chains 8 May 2013
As we seek to better support our customers with innovative and energy efficient products, we face additional social and environmental risks within our growing supply chain. Through our Responsible Procurement programme, we work to mitigate these potentially adverse impacts by identifying risks and engaging suppliers to implement processes that will improve operating standards.
In 2012 Centrica focussed on increasing our understanding of the risks faced from within our supply chain, by delivering an online pilot scheme that drove a risk-based approach to evaluating corporate responsibility (CR) within higher-risk areas of the supply chain. To help us do this, we partnered with EcoVadis, who specialise in implementing sustainable management programmes1.
Although none of our assessed suppliers were identified as posing a ‘high risk’, a small proportion were classed as being of ‘medium risk’. And in 2013, we will work to support these ‘medium risk’ suppliers by implementing corrective action plans to deliver agreed improvements. We further assessed 4,000 suppliers for bribery risk, four of which were identified as requiring additional monitoring to ensure their internal processes had appropriate anti-bribery processes in place. These suppliers will be required to supply evidence of compliance with our CR clauses.
The pilot scheme was successful and from 2013, suppliers will be required to undergo a CR assessment by EcoVadis in order to become one of our strategic suppliers. The assessment process, together with the site visits we make to our strategic suppliers to discuss performance and supplier management processes, helps detect where we can work with suppliers to improve standards and ensure better management of risks.
In 2013 Centrica will continue to strengthen our approach to Responsible Procurement. For more information on our partnership with EcoVadis and our supplier assessment process, view the communication sent to our suppliers as well as our joint Responsible Procurement brochure. If you would like additional details of our Responsible Procurement programme, please email Responsible.Procurement@centrica.com.
1.EcoVadis methodology for managing risk is supervised by a scientific committee, which comprises of recognised CR experts and is managed through an advanced web platform offering collaborative and comparative analysis on a range of company CR policies and performance.

to maximise value from our existing hubs,and invest in the North Sea to help it reach its potential. However, we face a number of key challenges:
- Increasing costs in the supply chain
- Lower productivity in mature basins
- Less than adequate capital performance
- Resulting in a number of project opportunities which are stalled
Our goal is to unlock these projects and we’re targeting savings to keep unit lifting costs flat over the next three years
“Unlocking the Portfolio” event planned for Q1 2015. Focus on identifying how to reduce costs of 2 projects by 50% -Finding our “Mangalyaan”
