    Parker Wellbore: Sets Six-Point Plan to Achieve New Environmental, Social, and Governance Goals

    Leading international oilfield services company Parker Wellbore today launched its six-point plan to ensure the organization plays a leading role in tackling climate change challenges for its customers.

    The program for success is outlined in the company’s inaugural Environmental Social Governance (ESG) report, which addresses the organization’s commitment to key environmental, social, and governance themes.

    “This report represents a new forum for sharing our ESG trajectory, including environmental stewardship, social awareness, and strong corporate governance, which are engrained in our mission, vision, values, and company strategy,” said Sandy Esslemont, Parker Wellbore President and Chief Executive Officer.

    “Our leadership team and stakeholders – including customers, investors, employees, and the communities where we work – appreciate that companies which excel in ESG performance also achieve safe, responsible, and profitable operations.

    “We all have a duty to safeguard the future for the generations to come, and it is widely acknowledged that time is running out to do that. I believe that the six-point plan released in today’s ESG report will ensure Parker Wellbore contributes to a lower-emissions future, while also improving the quality of life for our teams and the communities they live in, regardless of where they are in the world.”

    The report highlights numerous innovative technology solutions coming to market that provide a path to a lower-carbon emitting future, something Esslemont believes the company is in a prime position to influence.

    “We have a responsibility to help tackle the climate crisis. Parker has a rich history of tackling seemingly unsolvable problems; we are here to support our customers in their ambitious goals to address climate change,” he said.

    As outlined in the report, the company has conducted a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions study to establish a baseline to help understand the historical and future GHG emissions trends. This baseline has provided a foundation for the company to set emissions goals in the future.

    “We have set out new actions to deliver energy transition technology to the market,” said Esslemont. “Our technology will help fight climate change through optimizing processes, enhancing operational performance, and improving efficiency. Not only are we focused on using less energy to achieve the same ends, but we are also committed to lowering carbon emissions arising from the use of diesel fuel in operations at the wellsite.”

    In line with its existing 40-year foundation of geothermal activity in Indonesia, the ESG report reveals Parker Wellbore Rig 253 drills for renewable geothermal energy daily. In addition, the rig  successfully avoided 162 tonnes of CO2 by implementing its fast-growing technology solution.

    The company’s numerous social and governance initiatives and achievements include employee human capital development and training, strengthening the communities where Parker Wellbore operates by hiring locally, partnering with strategic charitable organizations, and emphasizing the value of all individuals through diversity and inclusion. Parker Wellbore’s governance practices emphasize the importance of ethics, risk management, and internal accounting controls oversight.
