Responsibility

Philosophy

Kolibri, like any business, is a part of the community in which it operates whether that community is defined in terms of its local operating environment, its employees or the broader corporate community. As such, we take our responsibility to our employees, our local community, our environment and our corporate stakeholders very seriously.

We take our responsibility to each of these stakeholders seriously. Without the dedication of our employees, our business would not exist and, accordingly, we owe it to them to foster an environment in which they can thrive and safely prosper. As a part of the local community in which we operate, we understand that being a good neighbor is essential to the success of our business and we work tirelessly to ensure that the local community shares in the benefits of our oil and gas operations. In addition to being a part of the local community, we also recognize our part in the broader corporate community and therefore seek to operate with complete transparency so that our shareholders have faith that they are partnered with a business based upon integrity and well managed growth.

Health, Safety, and Environment

Kolibri has a responsibility to operate in a manner that ensures the continuing healthy and safety of its employees and community members. In addition, our operating methods are designed to take into account the well-being of the environment including the land, water, and the air.

Health & Safety: Work in the energy industry and specifically in oil and gas exploration and production is inherently risky unless proper procedures are put in place and adopted on a day to day basis. We work continually to improve our safety record by ensuring that the importance of following safety best practices is communicated to and understood by all of our employees, contractors, consultants, and suppliers. We require any one working in or for our operations to acknowledge their understanding of our policies and practices through a formal sign-off procedure. We audit our employees and contractors to ensure that all field operations meet our health and safety procedures and policies.

Specifically, we seek to control and limit safety hazards and minimize worker injury by taking the following steps:

  • Designing and executing safety training programs so that our health and safety practices are adopted by all employees and contractors.

  • Continually monitoring our operations to identify deficiencies and use these to improve our practices for the future.

  • Staying abreast of industry best practices to ensure that we learn from practices adopted by others in our industry.

  • Working alongside our contractors, consultants, and suppliers to create and maintain a safer working environment.

  • Adopting and enforcing an alcohol and drug-free policy in all our operations.

  • Communicating the results of our efforts openly to all stakeholders as part of our policy of transparency.

Protecting our Water: We believe in a virtuous cycle of reduce, re-cycle, and re-use when it comes to the use of water in our oil and gas production when appropriate. While we recognized that water plays a critical role in our day-to-day operations, we will also recognize the importance of sound water management practices, which include minimizing our use of water and recycling and re-using water when appropriate.

We use best industry practices to protect the fresh water aquifers where we operate. We always set a string of steel casing “surface casing” to a depth below the fresh water table. This steel casing is set and then cemented in place with the end result of cement lining the entire outside of the steel casing from the surface to the bottom. This isolates all the fresh water aquifers from the deeper intervals that will be drilled and produced which are generally thousands of feet below the “surface casing”. In addition, we believe in good water management. In development operations we will be recycling the frac water to the largest extent possible.

Protecting our Air: We work hard towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions arising from our exploration and production efforts and improving energy efficiency.

Protecting our Land: We operate on land shared by our neighbors and therefore strive to protect the environment and improve our practices around land use. Specifically, we look to adopt low impact technology wherever possible.

Responsibility to Community

Taking into consideration the needs of the community in which we operate, is critical to the successful operation and growth of our company. We believe that Kolibri is an important part of the communities in which we work and live and as such we are committed to the future well-being of the community.

We focus our efforts on ensuring that these communities share in the benefits resulting from the oil and gas exploration and production taking place in their communities. Where appropriate, we look for opportunities to invest time and money in the community in ways that provide a lasting benefit to the community and its members.
