Environment

Innovative processes. Leading technology. Efficient operations.  We reduce our environmental footprint using the same tools we use to find and produce low-cost oil and gas.

Social

Engagement with our communities. Diversity of our workforce. Safety of our employees. Our unique culture is more than a competitive advantage, it’s fundamental to our social sustainability.

Governance

Ethics. Respect. Fairness. Governance at EOG is more than just complying with the law, it’s about ethically conducting our business to build trust among all our stakeholders.

“Pleased but not Satisfied”

Our motto here at EOG is “pleased but not satisfied.” We celebrate our breakthroughs, and then ask again, is there an even better way? Our motto is not just about innovative processes to lower costs or new techniques to improve well performance, it’s applied to the entire business. How can we reduce emissions, be more energy efficient, attract diverse candidates to work for us, contribute to the communities where we live and work, keep safety top of mind, every day… here at EOG, our approach to economic sustainability is the same as our approach to environmental, social and governance sustainability – pleased, but not satisfied.

Our Environment

Our People

Our Communities

We are committed to protecting the environment during all our operations — from conducting initial exploration and drilling, through the life of a well’s production. The following are just a few of the efforts EOG undertakes:

  • Reducing our overall surface footprint through the use of directional and horizontal drilling
  • Minimizing surface disturbance by drilling “packages” of wells from a single well pad
  • Installing water pipeline infrastructure, significantly reducing the number of trucks needed and reducing road congestion and truck emissions
  • Using non-potable water sources where available to reduce fresh water usage
  • Using well-control equipment to minimize the potential for a well-control incident
  • Recycling produced water for reuse in operations or other suitable beneficial uses
  • Installing instrument air systems on facilities to eliminate the emissions associated with facility controllers and pumps
  • Identifying, repairing and monitoring fugitive emissions at EOG facilities through a company-wide leak detection and repair (LDAR) program
  • Installing oil pipeline infrastructure to minimize the number of tanker trucks needed, reducing road congestion and truck emissions
  • Installing natural gas pipeline infrastructure to reduce flaring and vented emissions

By providing employees with a quality culture and environment in which to work, and by maintaining a consistent college recruiting program, EOG is able to attract and retain some of the industry’s best and brightest — people who will embrace the company’s commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility as the organization continues to grow. We offer:

  • A highly collaborative organization where employees come first and continuously learn from one another.
  • Competitive salaries, bonuses, a subsidized comprehensive benefits package, new hire stock grants, and an annual stock grant program.
  • A tuition and professional certification reimbursement policy.
  • A top workplace, based on third-party surveys of employees across EOG’s operations.
  • Safety training to ensure employees and contractors are prepared in the unlikely case of an incident.

EOG considers the diversity of its employees to be a tremendous asset, and it has strived for and embraced diversity throughout the company.

Another measure of our strong culture is a low voluntary turnover rate, consistently running around 5 percent annually.

EOG is committed to the ethical conduct and management of business that builds trust among its investors, employees and contractors, which is demonstrated by our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

EOG understands the importance of community engagement, including residents, landowners, mineral owners, civic leaders, elected officials and community groups. We actively look for opportunities to strengthen the communities where we are active, through actions such as:

  • Funding equipment purchases and training for multiple volunteer fire departments
  • Maintaining roads near operations by using road graders and snowplows
  • Providing financial support for roadside trash pickup programs
  • Partnering with local school districts, colleges and universities, and industry organizations to fund scholarships, training and education initiatives
  • Donating time and money to a wide range of charitable and community organizations and causes, such as Habitat for Humanity, Bike MS, adopt-a-highway programs, food drives, school supply drives, toy drives, summer reading camps and mentoring.

To encourage employees to be generous, EOG matches their donations, dollar for dollar, up to $75,000 per employee, per calendar year.
