Responsibility

Working responsibly is a key part of our strategy. Our business model is centred on building a balanced portfolio of exploration, development and production assets within the oil and gas lifecycle. 

We can only deliver value for our stakeholders by operating in a safe, secure and environmentally and socially responsible way. We manage our business activities in line with our core Policies and Business Principles of building respect, nurturing relationships and acting responsibly (the 3Rs) along with our Code of Business Ethics.
