Maintaining our social license starts with our relationships. Through thoughtful engagement with our stakeholders and Indigenous communities, we seek to understand what matters most to them.
Before conducting our activities, we complete a thorough assessment of the surrounding area to identify potentially impacted stakeholders – going beyond what’s required by regulatory. We incorporate feedback into our development planning to minimize impacts resulting from our activities.

In the event of an emergency:
Through consultation, we make every effort to go above and beyond by engaging early and often with community members near our operations. We proactively mitigate impacts through operational design, focusing on the following key areas:
During more active phases of our operations, and where practical, we minimize noise impacts by adding noise reduction panels to our sites. Based on noise assessments, we install 12’, 24’ or 32’ sound suppression panels to the perimeter of our operations.
We manage traffic impacts for community members in several ways, including route management, notification, and dust control.
To manage dust from high-traffic phases of project work, we use an environmentally friendly dust suppressant for extended dust control. For short-team dust control, we use water trucks, often re-using recycled water from our operations.
We recognize the importance of reducing our offsite impacts, particularly when it comes to air quality. Our Field Operations team ensures testing and facility maintenance are tied into production instead of venting and flaring, which results in less overall flaring and a lower risk of offsite odours.
