Reducing Impacts Through Responsible Development

As global demand for hydrocarbons continues to increase, our commitment is to responsibly develop the energy needed by consumers and a growing economy. To do this, we focus on strengthening our operational performance – increasing oil and natural gas production while also working to reduce our impacts to air, water and land.

We apply technology and innovation to improve operating efficiencies and minimize our footprint. We also work cooperatively and constructively with industry peers, governments, Aboriginal and local community leaders and many diverse stakeholder groups to bring about outcomes that reduce environmental impacts.

Continuous Improvement

Responsible energy development means understanding and actively managing environmental factors associated with resource development. Water, for example, is essential to the energy industry. It's a precious resource we all need to use with care. At Nexen, we're committed to finding innovative ways to consistently enhance water conservation in our operations.
