At PDC Energy, our employees define our company culture as friendly, helpful, authentic and approachable with a healthy community focus. As we envision our long-term business plan, we recognize a responsibility to both individual stakeholders and the community at large to create mutually beneficial relationships that endure. These relationships are based on our respect for each other, for members of the community, for the property of others and for the environment we all share. We encourage employees to act with integrity and in a highly ethical manner—for themselves as well as on behalf of the company—and to strive to be leading members of the greater community in which we live and operate.

PDC Values


At PDC, we live by our word.

We strive to be fair and honest, maintain high ethical standards and are known for doing what we say we will do. Every employee, including management, undergoes anti-corruption training on an annual basis.


Environment, Health and Safety

We respect each other through our actions, the environment and the health, safety and well-being of our employees as well as the communities where we live and work.


We are one company.

We will succeed far beyond our individual contributions through effective teaming. Each of our contributions and roles are critical to ensure our collective success.


We treat stakeholders fairly.

We aim to exceed internal and external stakeholders’ expectations by understanding their needs and requirements to ensure we deliver on our commitments. We collaborate with our fellow employees, investors, partners, service providers and communities in a transparent manner that builds trustworthiness.


We are driven to excel.

We demonstrate our commitment to achieving quality results through visible leadership, sound growth, financial discipline, innovation and continuous improvement.

At PDC, our core values emphasize integrity and respect for the environment and for the health, safety and well-being of our employees and the communities where we live and work. We seek to live our core values every day. PDC is devoted to the responsible development of the resources that power our lives while putting forth proactive and sincere investment in the time and resources needed to create strong relationships with the communities where we operate.

We reach out early and often – to share our commitment to safety and environmental protection, to listen to and address concerns, and to simply ask “how can we help support this community?” Often, the answer involves long-term partnerships with schools, local thought leaders and first responders.

Community Matters

For 50 years, PDC Energy and our employees have put our core values to work – developing the oil and natural gas that powers our lives in a way that is environmentally conscious and working hand-in-glove with the communities where we live and operate. We greatly value these community relationships and seek opportunities to give back, through volunteer hours and charitable donations. We’re also committed to innovation, utilizing technology that lessens potential impact and allows us to work safer, smarter and more efficiently. PDC Energy is a proven best-in-class operator and I’m proud of what we have accomplished over the years.
