Hess Exploration & Production Malaysia B.V.

– A three-pronged integrated approach – stakeholder engagement, social risk and impact management, and community benefits.

At Hess, social responsibility (SR) means maintaining the highest standards of corporate citizenship as we work to deliver the energy the world needs – energy that is fundamental to advancing economic progress and improving living standards. SR, which is one of the six Hess Values, is foundational to the culture of our company and to our engagement with the communities where we operate; it includes protecting the health and safety of our workforce, safeguarding the environment and creating a long-lasting positive impact on our communities.


  • Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program

Our social investment programs help improve education, which is fundamental to sustainable economic growth. Education is the primary focus of our CSR initiatives in Malaysia, and our ongoing commitment to supporting quality education is evident through our financial support for educational programs such as the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program. Hess has partnered with the U.S. Embassy in Malaysia to support the ETA program in Kelantan since 2018, bringing ETAs to teach English in public secondary schools.

Disaster Relief

On the East Coast of Malaysia where our operations are located, flooding during the monsoon season is an annual occurrence. These floods often have severe negative impacts on the local economy and community, causing shortages of food and clean water and damaging homes and other structures. Hess has committed to providing relief to flood-affected areas. We work with local nonprofit organizations annually, exchanging updates on the hardest-hit areas and the types of assistance needed.

Health and Community

In our effort to create positive and mutually beneficial relationships with our host communities, Hess also actively participates in various health and community programs organized by PETRONAS and local Oil & Gas bodies to enhance our company’s reputation and leverage volunteering opportunities among our employees, such as the Thai Oilman Charity Golf and MyKasih Golf. Programs such as these support the effort of giving back to society whereby the proceeds raised are donated to selected non-profit organizations.
