In an environment of no short-term upward flexibility in feed gas supply from domestic sources and continuing uncertainties in international markets, it is imperative that we continue to satisfy our customers as a dependable supplier of LNG and NGL whilst maximising the value along our entire hydrocarbon chain. We will achieve this through further minimizing energy usage, hydrocarbon losses and operating costs and maximising the value creation of all our assets by seeking and exploiting conventional and non-conventional commercial and logistic opportunities.
The reputation of our Company and sustaining our license to operate depends critically on retaining the trust of customers, suppliers and contractors and their continuing desire to do business with OLNG. This can never be taken for granted and will depend, ultimately, on the professionalism, integrity and fairness that all our employees demonstrate in their relationships with our stakeholders.
In equal measure, effective and engaging relationships with our communities and the Omani people at large are equally important for retaining our license to operate. As we move our efforts in this area for a Social Investment Programme to a Development Foundation, it is imperative that the effectiveness and reputation of the Company's Social Investment activities increase.
The reputation of our industry and credibility of Oman LNG as a reliable and trustworthy supplier has grown to depend strongly on excellence in personal safety and asset integrity, coupled to effective management of all the business processes within the Company, plant reliability and dependable delivery of our products. Achieving top-quartile performance in these areas requires operational excellence, organisational effectiveness and passionate adherence to best practices.
