OUR BUSINESS

We’re a growing oil and gas company producing more than 50,000 barrels of oil every day.

Most of our production comes from the UK continental shelf but we’ve got growing operations in Norway, the Netherlands and Egypt. We’re also exploring for oil and gas in North and West Africa. Our goal is to more than double production by 2016, focusing on Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Our people are experts in exploration and production. But having a talented team is only one ingredient of a successful international exploration and production company.

Perhaps the most important ingredient is the ability to understand, manage and adapt to the operating environment; to recognise the risks and opportunities; the impact of our activities, both positive and negative; and our relationships with business partners, governments and communities.

The things we care about are:

  • people
  • safety
  • environment
  • communities
  • procurement and supply chain
  • energy security
  • climate change.
