There is no business objective more important than our people's health and safety and the stewardship of the environment. President & CEO

Merit Energy Company is committed to producing oil and natural gas, essential to modern life, in a way that protects our people, the environment, and the communities where we live and work. This is embedded in our strategy, business processes, and decision making. Our disciplined commitment begins with senior leadership and board oversight and is embraced by the entire team.

Merit Impact Initiatives:

EMISSIONS REDUCTION

Merit is committed to reducing methane emissions by replacing high bleed pneumatic controllers with low-bleed, zero-bleed, or instrument air units where appropriate. Additionally, Merit will incorporate these changes on all newly constructed facilities and will utilize solar or electrical pumps when possible.

LDAR/OGI

Merit has expanded our LDAR program by increasing the use of optical gas imaging in an effort to reduce emissions even further.

WILDLIFE

Merit is committed to biodiversity, conservation, and protecting natural habitats. We adjust our operations to avoid disturbing the crucial natural environment during wildlife nesting and breeding seasons. In addition, we regularly participate in the environmental improvement of critical species, including recent participation in wildlife corridors in Wyoming, and in all our areas of operational focus.

FLARING

Merit is committed to not flaring natural gas as part of our standard operating procedures. Flaring capabilities are in place for emergencies, safety, pressure relief, or to control emissions only.

WATER INNOVATION

Merit has pioneered the use of a Sulfide Reduction System which allows for surface discharge of fresh water for the betterment of wildlife, ranchers, farmers, and local populations.

Industry Partnership

Merit is proud to participate with The Environmental Partnership, an organization comprised of U.S. oil & natural gas companies committed to continuously improving the industry’s environmental performance.

Community Impact

Philanthropy is at the heart of our core values. Merit employees actively raise awareness and dollars, and donate time to a variety of causes. The Merit Volunteer Program, an employee led initiative, provides opportunities for involvement impactful to our local community.
