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. A core value since our founding, this disciplined commitment begins with our senior leadership and board oversight and continues through our entire workforce – from our field, financial management, technology, acquisitions, and operations teams.

Merit Impact Initiatives:

FLARING

Merit is committed to maintaining a no flare status as part of our standard operating procedures. Flaring capabilities are in place for emergencies, safety, pressure relief, or to control emissions only.

EMISSIONS REDUCTION

We are committed to reducing methane emissions by replacing all pneumatic valves with low-bleed, no-bleed, or instrument air devices or remove entirely where appropriate. Newly constructed facilities will incorporate these changes and further will, wherever possible, include solar or electrical pumps.

LDAR/OGI

Merit has expanded our LDAR program by increasing the use of optical gas imaging in an effort to reduce reported emissions even further and allow for continued operational improvement across our assets.

WILDLIFE

We educate our employees, contractors, and vendors of relevant rules, regulations, and company initiatives that protect wildlife and 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 in our areas of operational focus.

Industry Partnership

Merit is proud to participate with The Environmental Partnership. This organization is 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 and our people are committed to making a difference. Merit employees actively raise awareness and dollars, and donate time to a variety of causes.
