Whistle Blower

Penn West has an independent, confidential and anonymous resource for all employees and consultants to report suspected unacceptable accounting and auditing practices, health, safety and environmental concerns, security issues and any other unbecoming conduct. All complaints will be initially summarized by the independent service provider and forwarded direct to the Chairman of the Penn West Board of Directors Audit Committee for review and remediation with Penn West Senior Management.

Program reporting will be managed by EthicsPoint, Inc. Members of the EthicsPoint team are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to receive phone calls at:
