Commitment to Community
A Stewardship of Trust
Every oil and gas E&P company bears some very important trust responsibilities and DJ Simmons takes its trust responsibilities very seriously. As an example, extracting natural resources in the Western U.S. necessarily means access across, and impacts to, the surface lands of private and public land owners. Rightfully so, surface owners have high expectations of energy producers to operate safely and in as environmentally benign way as possible. Simmons’ operations personnel strive to meet or exceed their expectations.
For Simmons’, it’s the little things that matter. Always locking gates to keep in a surface owner’s cattle or proactively communicating about pending activities at a well pad are a couple of examples. Trust responsibilities also include honoring the role of all regulatory agencies and seeking to be fully compliant with and respectful of their requirements.
A Commitment to Stewardship
The commitment to careful stewardship is grounded in several of DJ Simmons’ stated company values. These include being sustainable, respectful, reputable, and honorable. Natural energy resources contained in mineral leases, skilled employees, and financial capital are all assets requiring a great deal of thoughtful care. Each of these assets contain elements of assumed trust and the DJ Simmons’ management team seeks to execute its business decisions with this assumed trust clearly in mind and sharply in focus.
We Live Where We Work and We Serve Where We Live
The management and employees of DJ Simmons care about the communities where they work, play, and live. Employees are active in numerous civic groups, charitable causes, business and local government associations and advisory boards. Financial donations and sponsorships are too numerous to mention, but they are hallmarks of being a good corporate neighbor. Financial donations are prioritized by employee involvement, community impact, enhancing current and future workforce quality of life and economic development which, collectively, themselves are stewardship disciplines.
