We are committed to expanding our operations to create value for shareholders and further economic progress.

At the same time, we will conduct our business with a high regard for the health and safety of our neighbors, communities, employees, contractors and the environment. Marathon Oil believes stakeholder engagementstrengthens our ability to manage community impacts and risks, access new resources, operate efficiently, avoid project delays and sustain effective relationships.

Our commitment is to work with people interested in Marathon Oil projects or operations to understand how our operations impact local communities and to develop strategies and plans that deliver mutually beneficial results.

The Company’s sustainability guidelines encourage local asset teams to engage stakeholders to share information about our activities, seek feedback and ensure we understand their concerns and priorities.
