Promoting revenue transparency

Transparency helps citizens hold public authorities to account for the way they use funds received through taxes and other agreements


We support transparency in the flow of revenue from oil and gas activities to governments.

We are a founding member of the Extractive Industries’ Transparency Initiative (EITI), which requires disclosure of payments made to and received by governments in relation to oil, gas and mining activity. In 2017 we supported EITI implementation in a number of countries where we operate, including Iraq and Trinidad & Tobago.

In addition, we disclose information on payments to governments for our upstream activities on a country-by-country and project basis under national reporting regulations, such as those in effect in the UK.


We appreciate the opportunity to engage with EITI as we pursue our work in Mauritania and Senegal. This can make a real difference by bringing citizens’ groups, companies and governments together to build a framework for transparency.
