Our heritage



The safety of our employees, contractors and local stakeholders is a fundamental value.

Grounded in bp and Eni’s legacy safety culture, staying safe entails more than the continued adoption of world-class practices and procedures. Azule is committed to nurturing a trusting safety culture within an inclusive and diverse workplace where everyone is treated with respect and dignity.


Azule Energy is committed to preserving the environment and to promoting carbon neutrality. Our policy remains consistent with bp and Eni’s environmental values and goals to reach Net Zero 2050.

Azule’s emissions will follow a sustainable trajectory in line with both companies’ environmental targets. Hydrocarbon production and greenhouse gas emissions are reported by the two parent companies on an equity share basis.

Social sustainability

Azule is committed to promote the sustainable development of communities in the country, in line with the Government’s development plans and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We have a portfolio of diverse social initiatives inherited from bp and Eni which target key development areas across access to energy, access to water, health, education and agriculture.
