About Us

Strategic Focus

Oil Search’s vision is to generate top quartile returns for shareholders through excellence in socially responsible oil and gas exploration and production.

The Company aims to achieve this vision by pursuing six key strategies:

  • Sustaining and optimising the value of our oil and gas assets through safe and reliable operations.
  • Commercialising gas in the North-West Highlands of PNG, to underpin a potential expansion of the PNG LNG Project, and in the PNG Gulf Province, to support the proposed Papua LNG Project.
  • Pursuing high-value exploration opportunities focused on the significant gas upside in PNG as well as the disciplined pursuit of material international liquids opportunities.
  • Contributing to a stable operating environment in PNG, critical to Oil Search’s value and maintaining its social licence to operate.
  • Enhancing organisational capabilities to deliver our core strategies, further develop our business and technical leadership and protect our relationships, our knowledge and our way of doing business.
  • Optimising capital management to ensure our priority LNG growth projects can be fully funded, financial flexibility maintained and profits shared with shareholders.
