While the level of human contribution, timing, discovery technique, and resource extraction methods remain debated and uncertain with respect to climate change, we will continue to develop our current efforts and new business opportunities with the environment in mind.
Sustainability refers to not only the perpetuation of ecological wellness of the project at hand, but in a more macro sense, to the earth and global environmentas a whole. Can the earth withstand pollution at the current rate? Are the resources abundant enough to warrant the project? Are the benefits of the resources in line with the costs to the environment? Can we maintain the effort at a realistic cost? All questions we must ask when determining sustainability.
Engineering and environmental studies are conducted when preparing a program of fieldwork. These studies enable existing data to be classified and new data to be obtained regarding the status of that specific region’s ecosystem.
Comprehensive lifecycle planning. Everything from the initial ecosystem studies, to the entire life of the project, to the decommission plan.
End to end energy efficiency and green commitment – not just on our product, but all of our outputs.
Sustainable development and technologies – constantly investing in safer, cleaner ways to prospect and develop.
