Traditional Owner Engagement
No petroleum activity can be conducted on the Company’s licences and permits without the involvement and consent of the Traditional Owners of the areas, and Buru has never accessed an area without this consent.
A number of Nyikina Mangala, Yawuru and Warrwa Aboriginal employees work at the Ungani Oilfield and support our Kimberley operations more generally. The Company continues to comply with the relevant Ungani Traditional Owner agreements and is exceeding its targets for Aboriginal employment including recruiting an additional Aboriginal employee at our Ungani Oilfield during 2020. Buru also provides support for local Aboriginal ranger groups for key areas in which it operates and gives preference to contracting local Kimberley Aboriginal businesses to provide services.
