Hess Corporation is a leading global independent energy company engaged in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. Our portfolio is about evenly split between unconventionals and conventionals; U.S. and international; and onshore and offshore. Three quarters of our production is liquids versus gas.
The company’s global portfolio is focused in five strategic areas: the Bakken Shale in North Dakota and the Utica Shale in Ohio; the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico; Valhall Field in Norway and South Arne Field in Denmark; offshore West Africa – Equatorial Guinea and Ghana; and offshore Malaysia in the Gulf of Thailand. These specific areas represent 83 percent of reserves and 95 percent of production.
Our Corporate Values are the basic building blocks of our organization’s culture and represent our company’s collective conscience. While our strategy changes over time based on business conditions, our values are enduring.
