Bonanza Creek Values

The Bonanza Creek Way

We pride ourselves on conducting business according to three key principles: integrity, teamwork and transparency.

Our employees are best-in-class across the industry and are responsible for the tremendous success this company has enjoyed over the years. However, while expertise and talent are supremely important, we place a heavy emphasis on character, and our culture reflects that priority.


We expect our people to be truthful and reliable. We have the responsibility to operate safely and respectfully in our communities and honor the capital our shareholders have entrusted to us. This duty informs our decisions and our processes and we encourage our team members to consider their individual responsibility to these attributes while they represent Bonanza Creek.


Our employees work hard in the single-minded pursuit of increasing shareholder value. We promote a culture of collaboration that encourages people to be creative in solving problems. Our operations teams are constantly finding ways to do things better and cheaper, staying on the forefront of technology and innovation.


People make mistakes. Circumstances are not always favorable. Targets get missed. Things happen. We believe we have an obligation to ourselves and to the public to be open about what’s going on at Bonanza Creek. Nobody wins by hiding; we expect our employees to say “I can’t do this. I need help.” And we are committed to telling you when things go wrong. We always strive to do what we say we are going to do; but if we can’t, we’ll tell you.
