ExxonMobil Production Company’s U.S. operations have earned the Gas Processors Association (GPA) 2009 Company Safety Award and the President’s Award for Safety Improvement. Some 500 employees at the company’s gas processing facilities received the honors for outstanding safety performance during more than a million work hours.
Gas Processors Association president Bob Dunn presented the awards at the 88th annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Texas. “These safety awards are among the most important recognition we provide at this convention each year, because safety is a primary focus within all of our member companies,” said Dunn, announcing the recipients. “The gas processing industry is one of the safest in the world.”
The President’s Safety Award recognizes continuous improvement in safety performance measured by a reduction of 25 percent or more in recordable incident rates over the past three years.
This marks the third time in four years that ExxonMobil’s U.S. Production organization has earned the Company Safety Award from GPA.
“The company has always set very high standards for safety performance,” said Randy Cleveland, ExxonMobil U.S. production manager. “The achievement by our employees at gas processing facilities demonstrates their commitment to excellence in pursuing our vision that nobody gets hurt."
ExxonMobil is one of the largest oil and gas producers and reserves holders in the United States. The U.S. portfolio is geographically diverse with significant positions in all major producing regions, including the Gulf Coast and the Gulf of Mexico, the Mid-Continent and Rockies, onshore and offshore California, and Alaska.
