Whiting Petroleum recognizes the increasing public concern around greenhouse gas and other air emissions and the heightened focus on their impact to air quality and global climate change. With this concern and focus comes the potential for new regulations, and Whiting’s forward-looking emissions minimization approach positions us well to adapt to an ever-changing regulatory landscape.
We also recognize the important role oil and natural gas will play in meeting the country’s long-term energy demands as the diversity of energy sources continues to grow. Understanding our critical role in supplying affordable, reliable and efficient energy, we are committed to sustainable and responsible development of our vast oil and gas resources, and this commitment includes understanding and mitigating climate change risk. To that end, Whiting’s Board of Directors is updated on climate risk issues annually.
