We are a supporter of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), a voluntary multi-stakeholder initiative which promotes the open and accountable management and governance of natural resources through disclosure and authentication of company payments and government revenue receipts from oil, natural gas and mineral development.
In 2017 we continued our participation in the U.S. EITI Multi-stakeholder Group as part of U.S. efforts to implement EITI. The U.S. data portal can be found at http://useiti.doi.gov/ and includes information for 2017.
In November 2017, the U.S. government decided to no longer formally implement the EITI Standard in the U.S., as explained in its withdrawal letter.
In 2017, we operated in one country, Cameroon, that has been confirmed previously as EITI-compliant and we complied with the requirements for EITI in Cameroon in 2017.
We also engaged with other countries where we operate or have interests, where those countries have expressed interest in becoming candidate and eventually compliant countries.
