Our Corporate Philosophy at Mitchell Drilling International extends beyond Workplace Safety, with Cultural Sensitivity and Environmental Responsibility rating as primary topics of importance. This is of key significance as we expand our drilling operations around the globe, all while working with people and communities from diverse walks of life.

AS SUCH, WE ARE EXCEPTIONALLY MINDFUL OF ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS AND LEGAL REQUIREMENTS AT PLAY WITHIN EACH OF OUR AREAS OF OPERATION.

Sustainability is one of the cornerstones of our modus operandi, with projects only ratified once all the required Environmental Impact Assessments are in place.

Minimising our impact begins during the planning process, and this is when we ensure compliance with local environmental laws, all while benchmarking these against our own internal policies and relevant industry standards. In order to maintain our high standard of environmental integrity, these procedures are then applied to ensure that all processes are executed with minimal damage to the environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IS FURTHERMORE INTRINSICALLY
LINKED TO LOCAL COMMUNITIES LIVING IN AND AROUND THE AREAS WHERE
MITCHELL DRILLING INTERNATIONAL OPERATES.

Based on our decades of African and international experience, it is clear that no company or project can be successful without participation from and support of local communities and businesses.

Providing employment opportunities – whether on drilling projects or as a sub-contractor or supplier – is a primary objective whenever a new operation is envisaged. This allows us to uplift local communities and towns, and positively impact on the economic stability of the region. Consideration is also given to any recognised charities or fundraising efforts linked to relevant schools, sports clubs, food schemes and other community initiatives.

Our prominent track record for socio-economic development in all the countries where we operate speaks volumes. We have come to realise that a mindful approach and dedicated management team are required to create lasting social and economic outcomes, which is why this outlook is entrenched within written development policies by our directors.

These policies underpin practical protocols such as progressive mentoring, internal training and certified external training. In the long run, this ensures that every employee is given the best opportunity to fulfil their responsibilities at all levels within the organisation.

Fulfilling the obligations set out by our directors and shareholders means we must look at every decision we make, and through this ensure the protection of both our workforce and the immediate natural environment. We are nothing without the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we love.
