Mission, Vision, Values


Our mission is to provide crude oil and natural gas essential to the public and our economy through exploration and development using practices that provide sustainable business growth and enhance shareholder value.


Our vision is to be a prominent independent oil and gas company in the western United States through exploration, property acquisition and optimization. By developing and nurturing a long-term strategic vision that drives company growth and profitability, we aspire to sustain value and create strong financial returns for our shareholders, employees, and partners. By continually innovating and improving our operational and organizational performance, we aim to meet or exceed the success of our peers.


At the core of our values are:

  • Relationships. We value open and honest communication both internally, with shareholders and employees, and externally, with partners, vendors, and operations communities. We desire to be transparent and respectful in every situation. We will reward our shareholders, employees, and partners for their trust and commitment. We also provide for long-term company growth by building a strong team of qualified people matched with positions that utilize their strengths and advanced technology that maximizes their effectiveness.
  • Experience. We are a strong company because of our collective knowledge of the industry. Experience gives us a foundation for discernment and the ability to carefully select projects and opportunities. We believe the input and actions of our employees are vital to optimizing operations and capitalizing on opportunities. We use our combined insights and perspectives to achieve excellence in operations.
  • Integrity. Our team members will always do the right thing with respect to safety, business, and protection of the environment. Our strong fiscal discipline and accountability ensure we are operating with the highest standards and remaining prudent in our risk-taking. We work to minimize and negate our environmental impact through proper planning and operational diligence.
  • Growth. We encourage an environment of innovation and organizational learning for the continued development of the company and our employees. We believe the need for innovation in our industry goes beyond technology to information management, communication, business practices, and how we build relationships.

By sustaining the Vision and supporting the Mission, The Termo Company will achieve prominence as an independent oil and gas exploration and production company.
