The Osbra (Oleoduto São Paulo–Brasília) System is one of the main pipeline systems for Petrobras Transportes S. A. - Transpetro and its function is to carry gasoline, diesel oil and liquefied petroleum gas throughout the Midwest region of Brazil. Since the beginning of the operation of Osbra in 1996, the Environmental Management System (EMS) has evolved following the development of the company, nationally and globally. The basis of environmental management is ISO 14001, in which the system has been certified since 2001. The evolution of the management system has significant marks, among which we highlight the Program for Excellence in Environmental Management and Safety, the Program Process Safety and the Project on Excellence. The positive performance of the EMS is demonstrated in the excellent performance of indicators, such as, zero spills from pipeline and one of the best evaluations in the Program of the Evaluation of Environmental Management for the Company. This paper provides a review of this initiative, including the main processes, programs, difficulties, solutions, tools and indicators that contributed to the success in over fourteen years of operation of the Osbra System.
