Areas of focus
Health and Safety Risk Management
Risk management is a central part of our strategic management. We believe that investment in education and continual professional development leads to more effective risk management.
Drilling Risk Management
As drilling operations can pose significant risk, we continued to utilise the skills and knowledge of supervisors on-site which has enabled us to define and manage risk more clearly. We select supervisors for their expertise as well as for their familiarity with the regions where we operate. They understand local working practices and look to enhance the education and training of our contract drillers.
Environmental Responsibility
We work hard to protect our people, their communities and also the environment, both close to our projects and in the wider world. The environmental performance of our operations has implications for our relationships with our people, their communities, partner organisations, the media, governments, investors and other stakeholders
