Oil and gas exploration company Invictus Energy Limited has expanded its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program in the Muzarabani and Mbire Districts in line with the progression of its phase 2 exploration campaign.
According to Invictus’ Managing Director, the Company successfully completed several projects focused on the provision of water to clinics, schools and community centres, which is an enabler to future CSR initiatives the Company wishes to implement to improve lives and livelihoods in remote communities.
He said the Company is expanding its CSR program to include rehabilitating existing roads and assisting with community initiatives to address human-wildlife conflict. The Company has recently completed the rehabilitation and upgrade of the road from Muzarabani to Hoya, which has provided improved access to clinics and schools for the surrounding community.
“The CB23Seismic Survey has generated over100 direct jobs during the campaign for the local communities, as well as the procurement of goods and services from local suppliers.
“The local community engagement is in keeping with the Company’s shared prosperity approach, ensuring all stakeholders, including the local community, benefit from finding, developing and producing natural resources.
“The Company also continued our student and lecturer attachment program from the local universities to develop and transfer skills in the oil and gas industry,” McMillan said.
