Water Scarcity

Access to potable water is a fundamental human right which we actively support. When designing projects, we examine the need for water and look to understand direct and indirect, negative and positive impacts of our operations on water sources. Water is used in varying degrees at all stages of the life cycle. In the production phase, typical volumes of water involved would be approximately 50 gallons of water for every barrel of oil produced.
