In everything we do, from business management to producing from the ultra deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, we seek to be a reference in social and environmental responsibility.

We incorporated into our business the principles set forth by the UN's Global Compact on human rights, work relations, on the environment, transparency, and on fighting corruption. In our daily activities, we have proven that it is possible to blend profitability with respect for people and for the environment.

Safety, the environment, and health are inseparable parts of our work system. Our business performance is aligned with the efficient use of energy and the concept of sustainable development, involving employees, communities in areas that neighbor our activities, and society at large.
