Our Core Values



“Do the Right Thing”

What is integrity? It’s the moral and ethical principles that Hilcorp represents and practices. It’s caring about others and knowing that they have the trust and confidence in the words we speak and the products that we deliver- whether internal or external to the Hilcorp family. It’s a virtue that radiates throughout Hilcorp.


“Act Today, Not Tomorrow”

Hilcorp’s commitment to urgency and ownership allows me to quickly tackle and make decisions on major issues. Other companies would take months to get people together to talk and discuss the things we accomplish in just a matter of hours.


“Work Like You Own the Company”

It’s very refreshing to wake up every day and look forward to heading into work. To know that how effective and productive I am in my job has a direct impact on how much money not only that I can bring home, but my colleagues as well, make every minute rewarding.


“When Hilcorp Wins, We All Win”

Early on, I worked at places where bonuses were just “pennies from heaven”. Hilcorp ties incentives to things our people can control – our actions influence what we’re paid. Since we pull together, not competing against each other and we all have skin in the game, it’s amazing what we can accomplish.


“Get Better Every Day”

Creativity and constant improvement are vital to our operations. Developing energy that would have otherwise been lost often brings new and unusual challenges to the table. As a result, we constantly ask ourselves: Is there a better way to do this? Improvement is definitely a key component of Hilcorp’s success.
