Our strategy is to own and operate large, long-life, low-cost, expandable, upstream assets diversified by commodity, geography and market. Our strategy has remained unchanged for over a decade and has enabled us to deliver superior margins throughout economic and commodity cycles for many years.
Our diversified, low cost, Tier One asset base enhances the resilience of our cash flow by reducing our exposure to any one commodity or currency and provides for more predictable and robust financial performance. It allows us to invest in and grow our business throughout economic cycles thereby delivering superior long-term value to our shareholders.
Our strategy is founded on diversification – by commodity, geography and market. To succeed, we need a workforce that reflects our values and the communities in which we operate. We aim to recruit from our host communities, to attract high calibre people who are committed to the success of our organisation and thrive on working in high performing teams. We are committed to developing the skills and capability of our people and believe this, underpinned by our Tier One resource base, is what differentiates us from our competitors.
We are focused on developing and growing our diversified portfolio of Tier One assets to continue to meet the changing needs of our customers. Our products are the raw materials fuelling not just today’s growth, but growth that will occur a century from now. We have a world-class portfolio of growth options that will ensure we are able to plan for the short and long term and continue to create value for our shareholders.
