Dear GASCO Family,

Welcome to "Takallam" – our ethics and compliance hotline.

Takallam, meaning "speak", aims to create and foster a safe, secure and ethical work environment for every member of the GASCO Family.

This new phone and web-based reporting system is managed by an external, third party called EthicsPoint. Through EthicsPoint, Takallam provides a secure, independent and anonymous reporting channel to report on any violations to GASCO's Code of Conduct.

Please note, personal HR related grievances should be raised as per the HR Grievance Procedure. Takallam focuses mainly on misconduct and Code of Conduct violations such as accounting malpractices, corruption, conflict of interest and others. Once a report is filed, it will be investigated and followed-up appropriately, through GASCO Ethics Committee. The system also allows you to track the status of your case online at any given point and time.

If you have any questions or comments, you may contact either the GASCO Compliance Team on 31243 or EthicsPoint- on 80004442391.

It is the responsibility of everyone, regardless of position, to promote an ethical culture. I therefore encourage you to [do the right thing] and speak-up by reporting any concerns or violations to our code of conduct, to foster a healthy work environment.

Best Regards,
Dr. Saif Sultan Al Nasseri
Chief Executive Officer
