Social Responsibility

Commitment to Safety

Riley Exploration Group, Inc. is dedicated to creating a work environment that promotes the health and safety of all employees, contractors and vendors. Safety is a core value that’s reflected in our planning, decision making and day-to-day operations. We work closely with communities, local officials and regulatory authorities to meet the highest safety standards possible, as well as operate in accordance with all applicable regulatory requirements. All of this while striving to continuously improve our health and safety performance as we work towards a goal of zero incidents. Through Riley’s dedication and commitment to safety, we earn our stakeholder’s trust and maintain positive working relationships within your community.

Our number one priority at all times is safety regardless of the urgency of the job. We believe excellent health and safety performance is critical to the long term success of Riley, as well as a key component in maximizing return to investors.

Commitment to Environment

We have a fundamental respect for the environment, and the people and communities in which we live and operate. We apply strict adherence to all federal, state and local regulations and strive to exceed minimum requirements when appropriate. As we continue to expand our operations, we firmly believe that it is good business practice to protect the environment and the communities in which we operate and as such are committed to being stewards of the environment.

Commitment to Community

At Riley, we are active members of the communities in which we live, work and operate and make it a priority to develop positive relationships based on mutual respect. Believers in corporate responsibility, we have developed a community investment program centered on three areas that we feel particularly passionate about.

The Arts

The Arts is a language that speaks to everyone and can cut across many barriers to unite individuals who share cultural appreciation and awareness. Riley initiated a partnership with the Oklahoma City Ballet to ensure they are able to continue to offer amazing programming while allowing for greater access to a broader Oklahoma audience. Riley continues to be committed to the Arts and is thrilled to play a small role in helping the Oklahoma cultural community continue to thrive and grow.

Health and Wellness

With health and wellness as a priority for all Riley employees, we provide access to our on premise fitness center and encourage employee-led group fitness sessions that include interval training, organized runs and bike rides. After all, we believe employees have clearer minds and make better decisions when they practice healthy living.

Whether it be for cancer research, the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society or a 5K that supports healthy living, we at Riley feel strongly about supporting programs that promote health and wellness.

We are proud to have a partnership with the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation to expand its reach for children undergoing cancer treatments. This organization, which originated in Chicago, has implemented programs across 17 states in the U.S. The Treasure Chest program allows cancer patients (ranging in age from birth through 18 years) at 48 children's cancer treatment centers to choose an age appropriate toy as a reward for having the courage to undergo painful but necessary procedures. Smaller toys are stored in a Treasure Chest and designated for children undergoing simple procedures like blood tests. Larger, more expensive gifts are designated for those children experiencing extensive, painful procedures such as spinal taps and bone marrow aspirations.

Riley’s launch of the program at the Jimmy Everest Center for blood disorders and cancer in children in 2015 made Oklahoma the 18th state in the Treasure Chest Program. The program anticipates serving more than 200 children and teens each month. For more information, visit

To encourage participation in our health and wellness program among all employees while raising money for good causes, Riley supports employee teams in various runs and cycling events throughout our areas of operation such as the MS-150, Fit for Foodie Run, and Reagan Voice PTA- Norman cycling event.

Youth Programs

As a forward-thinking company, we at Riley look to programs that support our underserved youth and give them the tools necessary to succeed at school which ultimately sets the stage for success in life.

Riley has also been a supporter of Texas CASA, Inc., which advocates for abused and neglected children in the court system through the development, growth and support of local CASA programs. In Texas, there are 71 local CASA programs with more than 7,600 volunteers serving nearly 24,000 foster children in 207 counties. For more information, visit
