Onshore

Overview

Our onshore operations help meet the world’s growing energy needs in a safe, environmentally responsible and sustainable way.

We work to build strong relationships with landowners and local communities and provide relevant information. We strive to promote understanding of our operations, engage and contribute positively to communities and minimize development impacts.

We also apply proven techniques as well as the latest advances in technology – developed through our own research, as well as through collaboration within the industry – to safely and responsibly develop oil and natural gas. One way we’re doing this is by combining horizontal drilling with hydraulic fracturing to unlock new production from unconventional reservoirs, including areas where oil and gas pioneers began searching for hydrocarbons more than 100 years ago.

From our operations in North America to those in Australia, we follow a set of Global Onshore Well Management Principles  throughout the life cycle of a well, ranging, for example, from discussions with local communities during drilling site selection to the permanent closure of a depleted well and final restoration of the land. These principles reinforce our core values, incorporate established industry standards and are designed to meet or exceed regulatory requirements.
