the Murphy culture

Why Murphy?Around the world, across the United States and throughout the Murphy enterprise, dedicated, talented, well-trained people help supply the energy on which this and future generations depend. That is a big responsibility, one we all take very seriously.

From the boardroom to the executive offices to every position in the field, every Murphy Oil employee shares an enduring commitment to do the job right. Everyone is expected to: 

  • Meet and surpass environmental standards
  • Create and maintain a safe and rewarding work place
  • Make positive contributions to the communities in which we operate
  • Be committed to the Company’s core ethical values

We believe that we do not inherit our world from past generations as much as borrow it from future ones. Murphy Oil and its employees share a commitment to make a positive difference every day. We do it not only by meeting the energy needs for today, but also by preserving and protecting our communities for tomorrow.
