Our commitments

Like its executives, Pétrolia has its roots in Quebec. As a Quebecer, I am proud of my heritage and committed to my environment and 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 reducing environmental and social risks to the minimum. We make sure that every one of our actions reflects the precautionary principle, 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
  • Conduct research to better understand the oil resources in the Gaspé Peninsula

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 help build a healthy economy that strengthens tourism, as is the case in many other parts of the world.

In our eyes, the success of our projects is inseparable from the region's success. This is why, as we go forward, Pétrolia will make sure it:

  • Creates jobs for local people
  • Supports local businesses
  • Supports projects that are important to local communities
  • Encourages regional initiatives through a sponsorship program
