Core Values

At LPRA, our values are the attributes, behaviors, and attitudes every employee embodies. We live by these values personally and as an institution. They are the fabric of our life and work. They cannot be legislated but we have pledged to do our best to uphold them, to honor them in our decisions, to express them in our relationships, and to act consistently with them in all our work.
  • Integrity

    We believe honesty and ethical behavior make our work easier, more effective, and respected. We put integrity at the heart of everything we do and ensure our actions are not only legally compliant but also morally upright.

  • Transparency

    We are committed to openness in all our activities, allowing stakeholders to understand our operations, follow our progress, and hold us accountable. We ensure transparency across all our operations, including tendering, the granting of petroleum agreements, and the management of petroleum operations, thereby fostering an environment of trust and reliability.

  • Accountability

    We are fully answerable to the Liberian government, the Liberian people, and other stakeholders for every decision and action we take.

  • Sustainability

    We uphold the highest standard of safety, health, environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and governance; ensuring that our operations today do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

  • Stewards

    We take great care in managing the resources entrusted to us. Our investments maximize socio-economic benefits for Liberians, ensuring that the wealth derived from petroleum resources is channeled towards activities that promote national development and prosperity.
