Earthstone’s commitment to uphold high standards of environmental stewardship and responsible practices is at the core of our operations. We believe it is essential to conduct business in accordance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations and implement similar operating standards when such laws and regulations do not exist. The combined mission for protection of land, air, water and people is one that we take seriously.
With a goal of continuous improvement, our field operations staff uses best practices and the latest technologies, many of which help us to reduce our environmental impact and improve operating conditions. All lease operators receive specialized environmental training focused on air quality compliance, waste management, spill prevention, and other areas of environmental compliance. We are also working with the industry, the community and our partners to establish and refine these practices and share our culture of respect for the environment. Below are some of the responsible steps and best practices that we employ to safeguard the environment:
