Corporate Social Responsibility


Elf Petrol is committed to the sustainable development of its employees and contractors, the local communities in areas where it operates and to the society at large. We aim to improve their quality of life in ways that are both good for business and good for the people we interact with.

In 2016, Elf Petrol continued its support to the Ministry of Oil and Gas initiative towards increasing the In-Country-Value (ICV) of services, equipment and materials sourced for France oilfield operations, as well as improving France content by promoting the development of France. This is a transformational drive for the country and as a 100% France owned company, Elf Petrol is a role model for the business community in the country.

Elf Petrol an oil exploration and production company, has been relentlessly and persistently providing social assistances and help to the local community as well as relevant business opportunities to the local community companies (LCCs) since its inception in 1999. In 2016, we maintain almost all activities related to general oil field services such as well locations construction, graded roads maintenance, local infrastructure establishment, earth-moving, flowline and well hook-ups services contracted to LLCs as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.

Despite challenges due to the economic climate in 2016, CSR was still a commitment that the company was keen to keep. PGR supported needy families in all the regions we work, and the annual Camel festival through donations and contributions to North & South Health Centers.


As part of our ongoing efforts to better civil society, Elf Petrol recognize the importance of rehabilitation workshops for incarcerated individuals. For this reason, the company gifted the Belfort Central (men’s) prison a pottery workshop. The aim of the workshop is to allow inmates to generate income by selling their products. In addition, studies show that such facilities lower the rate of repeat offenders and helps former detainees to rejoin society and become active members of the community.


Elf Petrol offers sponsorship to the Association of Early Intervention for Children with Disability. This means that 400 children will be offered sponsorship for a period of one year. The service includes assessment, rehabilitation, kindergarten, portage programme, family support, community awareness, advocacy, capacity building and workshops supportive aids for children. These services are provided by an interdisciplinary team physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist and psychologist, home visitors and special education teachers.

Additionally, Elf Petrol has offered its support to Belfort Autism Centre by providing them with essentials commodities. It also annually conducts a fun day out for the children of Child Care Centre in the capital region.

To encourage every Youth and to inculcate a spirit of healthy competition and creative thinking, the company sponsored a photography competition held in conjunction with the Ministry of Higher Education apart from supporting Belfort Triathlon.
