Sustainability at Vermilion

Our 2023 Highlights


We provided over $2 million in community investment donations to non-profit and charitable organizations around the world.


We also committed $1.2 million over the next seven years to Inn from the Cold, the largest organization in the Calgary region that is dedicated solely to families experiencing a housing crisis. We believe as they do: that a community is possible where no child or family is homeless


We reduced our Scope 1 emission intensity to 0.017 tCO2e/operated boe, reflecting a 10% reduction over our baseline year of 2019 and on track to achieve our 2025 target of 15-20%.


Note: Emissions calculated in general accordance with GHG Protocol and IPCC guidance; reported intensities are based on operated throughput; Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions externally verified (limited assurance) in accordance with ISO 14064-3 verification standard.


In 2022, Vermilion produced approximately 31 million boe of oil and natural gas, thereby investing:

A 4.6-kilometre section of the Corrib gas pipeline is installed in a tunnel under the Bay, which is a large tidal inlet and comprises part of a Special Protection Area for birds and an internationally important wetland (Ramsar) site. The area was monitored intensely for water birds before, during and for several years after the construction of the pipeline as part of the Corrib Biodiversity Action Plan. Related data on the habitats and species can be found here.

Any person receiving IR Information acknowledges (i) the need to conduct their own thorough investigation of Vermilion and its activities before considering any investment in its securities; and (ii) that IR Information contains statements that are considered to be “forward-looking statements” or “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian and United States securities laws (collectively, “forward-looking statements”); forward-looking statements are based on Vermilion’s current expectations and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could materially affect future results; Vermilion assumes no obligation to revise or update forward-looking statements to reflect new circumstances, except as required by applicable securities laws; IR Information also contains statements (such as net debt, fund flows from operations and netbacks) that are not determined in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“Non-GAAP measures”); Non-GAAP measures included in IR Information do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable with calculations of similar measures by other companies; in IR Information certain natural gas volumes have been converted on the basis of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel equivalent of oil; barrels of oil equivalent (boe) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation; a boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet to one barrel of oil is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead; IR Information also refers to reserves and resources, and all reserves and resources have been estimated using the definitions in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (the “COGE Handbook”) as prescribed by National Instrument 51-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities.
