Tulsa, OK-based independent Laredo Petroleum Inc. is set to rebrand as Vital Energy Inc. on Jan. 9, management said. 

The name change is consistent with the company’s goal “to ensure everyone has access to the reliable, affordable energy resources needed to power their lives,” according to the firm.

The rebrand “reflects our mission and collective commitment to find new and creative ways to add value for all of our stakeholders,” said CEO Jason Pigott upon unveiling the firm’s 2022 environmental, social and governance (ESG) and climate risk report.
