Responsibility

Environment

Kosmos respects and protects the environment wherever we operate. Thorough environmental impact assessments are performed prior to any exploration, development or production activities, in order to minimize adverse impacts on the environment. We are committed to reducing emissions and waste, and using energy and other natural resources efficiently.


Performance

The environmental data presented below is for Kosmos operated assets only. Waste and air emissions are measured in tons, with greenhouse gas emissions measured in metric tons of CO2 equivalent. The data represents drilling rigs as well as seismic and support vessels.
