environment We understand that our operations have an affect on the environment and people. The majority of ARC’s operations are in areas with a long history of development. We work to maximize the effectiveness of existing infrastructure (e.g., roads, wells) and as a result, we tend to have fewer impacts on the land. Balancing this is the fact that as oil and gas reservoirs deplete, more energy and effort is required to extract the resource. But we also realize that the more efficiently we can extract resources - that is, with less energy and water inputs and less waste outputs - the more financially attractive our operations become. It is against this backdrop that we work to reduce our environmental impacts. Our Environmental Commitments ARC strives to exhibit leadership in the environmental arena. As stated in our HSE Policy, we will: • • • • •

meet or exceed regulations, industry standards, and stakeholder requirements integrate environmental management measures into our activities be prepared for emergencies monitor and assess performance maintain high standards for our various reporting initiatives

By the time of our next report we plan to: • explore subject areas where we can set quantitative environmental targets • refine our audit process by combining different types and assessing their effectiveness • improve our measurement and records systems
