Buru Energy’s exploration and production activities are solely focused in the Canning Basin, meaning strong and sustainable relationships with the Kimberley community are central to our business. We seek to be a valued employer and to source as many of our goods and services as possible from local suppliers.
The Canning Basin has multiple land uses with our exploration permits and production licenses overlapping Native Title areas, pastoral stations and mining tenements. To ensure our activities are understood and provide minimal disruption to the activities of other landholders, we consult closely with landholders that may be affected by our activities. This includes supporting independent specialist advice, as required. During our operations, we seek to maximize the opportunities our activities create for landholders and the local community.
Buru Energy’s priority areas for investing in the local community include:
- Supporting local families and businesses by employing Kimberley people and procuring as many goods and services as possible from Kimberley businesses.
- Actively engaging with the local community regarding our activities and supporting independent specialists to ensure relevant stakeholders have access to clear and objective information.
- Developing a future for young people in the Kimberley region.
- Minimising our impact on the natural environment and investing in projects that contribute to a better understanding of the environment in the region, for the benefit of all stakeholders.
