HOUSTON, June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VAALCO Energy, Inc. (:EGY; LSE:EGY) (“VAALCO” or the “Company”) today announced that it has released its environmental, social and 2021 Governance (“ESG”), now available on VAALCO’s website, www.vaalco.comunder the “Sustainability” tab.

The report covers VAALCO’s ESG initiatives and associated key performance indicators for the three-year period from 2019 to 2021. In preparing the qualitative and quantitative information and data, the Company continued to consult the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Sustainability Accounting Standard, and this year we looked more meaningfully at the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”).

Commenting on its post, Chief Executive George Maxwell said: “We continue to place great emphasis on capturing, tracking, analyzing and ultimately reporting our ESG performance to our stakeholders. I am pleased to present VAALCO’s 2021 Annual ESG Report.

“In a busy year for the team, the continued progress we are making in all aspects of our operational and social performance is very positive.

“It is important to note that as we grow and in line with our commitment to defining a clear strategy for reducing emissions, we continue to acquire new skills within our team. The appointment of an ESG Process Engineer, who has extensive oil and gas experience, will allow the Company to take a very pragmatic look at our operating base to design a suitable decarbonization pathway. I look forward to providing further updates in due course.
