As FLERC primarily operate on traditional Frog Lake territory, it has been their responsibility to act as the “fire-keepers” towards on-reserve resource development. FLERC operations as an oil & gas company has had the opportunity to work with several diverse partnerships with the goal of crude oil extraction.
During the formation of these partnerships, FLERC considers both the environmental and economic impacts they carry upon Frog Lake Lands and wishes to ensure a set criteria is met with respect to honoring the traditional territory and providing career opportunities.
Given FLERC is one of the few aboriginal owned oil & gas companies, value creation to its shareholders is based on a code of conduct and ethical requirement that promotes personal integrity.
