Our commitments

Like its executives, Pétrolia has its roots in Quebec. As a Quebecker, I am proud of my heritage and I am committed to my environment and my culture. For seven years now, we have managed Pétrolia based on these values. My colleagues and I ensure that these values are upheld so we can help preserve Quebec’s environment and culture for future generations.

There is no such thing as zero risk, but all our efforts are directed at minimizing environmental and social risks. We make sure that every one of our actions follows the principle of caution, particularly in terms of safety and the environment. As a responsible Quebec company, Pétrolia promises to:

  • Adopt high safety standards;
  • Use the best technology available on the market; and
  • Conduct research to better understand the oil resources in Gaspé.

We firmly believe that the success of Pétrolia’s projects goes hand in hand with a proper integration into the region. We believe that the birth of a new industry there will create a healthy economy that will encourage tourism, as is the case in many other parts of the world.

According to our vision, the success of our projects must be synonymous with the region's success. This is why, as its projects go forward, Pétrolia will make sure it:

  • Creates jobs for the people in the region;
  • Supports local businesses;
  • Supports projects that are focused on the communities; and
  • Encourages regional initiatives through a sponsorship program.
