By working in close partnership with a range of stakeholders at the local and national level, Oil Search Foundation addresses the country’s significant challenges by delivering targeted programmes to improve the lives of Papua New Guineans.
As a key player in PNG’s oil and gas industry, Oil Search believes that proactive participation in the development of the country by the corporate sector is not only needed, but an obligation. Being committed to sustainable development is an important part of maintaining our social license to operate. By playing a vital role in the economic and social development of PNG, our sustainable development programmes help to maintain operating stability, while improving development outcomes for the people of PNG.
The Oil Search Foundation is one of the more visible ways we are able to make this important contribution.
It makes good business sense and it ensures we can continue to be a socially responsible operator. The Foundation embodies our long-term commitment to building PNG’s capacity to deliver better and sustainable development outcomes for its people.
With a long history in PNG since 1929, Oil Search values the work of the Foundation as core to operating responsibly for many more decades to come. As its founder and principal donor, Oil Search is committed to funding and building the Foundation into one of PNG’s foremost development organisations.
