DEVON’S WATER PRINCIPLES
Devon Energy understands that water is a necessary resource for its business as well as an essential part of the ecosystem. Water is fundamental to global health and to the social and economic well-being of the communities where we live and work.
Our company’s success relies on executing a sustainable water-management strategy that balances ecological, economic, operational and social criteria. Devon is committed to the principles of water conservation and reuse in its operations through the following:
- Educating and working closely with governmental authorities, communities, businesses and other stakeholders about water management needs and advocating for appropriate regulations
- Identifying usage needs, determining resource availability, incorporating economically and operationally feasible alternatives to drinking water supplies, monitoring water use and continuously updating plans
Technology Evaluation and Deployment
- Identifying, testing and evaluating technologies related to sourcing, recycling, storing and moving water and deploying technology to reduce fresh-water demand
- Identifying and implementing water management best practices that improve the economics, reliability and safety of using non-potable water supplies while protecting the environment
