Understanding our water footprint means:

  • Understanding how much water we need for exploration and production
  • Understanding what quality of water we need
  • Understanding where we need water
  • Determining where we will obtain water
  • Ascertaining who else wants or needs to use water from the same source §  Understanding what water will be disposed or discharged and where

We collect and track water performance data as needed for each asset, basing decisions on the unique local social, economic and environmental conditions. We publicly report on our key water metrics and our progress on improving the understanding of our footprint, including:
