STEER recognizes those going above and beyond in the Eagle Ford Shale

The South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER) honored Energy Waste, Cheniere Energy, Resirkulere, CPS Energy, EcoVapor Recovery Systems, OmniTRAX, CASA of Bee, Live Oak and McMullen Counties and the George West Education Foundation as the recipients of the 2018 Eagle Ford Excellence Awards. The awards recognize leading companies and organizations working in or with the oil and gas industry for their diligent efforts in protecting the environment, making safety a top priority and giving back to the communities in which they live and work.

“Though the Eagle Ford Shale operations have been active for 10 years, the commitment to a focus on safety, environmental protection and community involvement continues to surpass expectations,” said Chris Ashcraft, Interim CEO of STEER. He continued, “It is important to the oil and gas industry, our board of directors in particular, to honor these companies and organization today, winners and nominees, who encompass these values as much as STEER.”

The awards ceremony provides both oil and gas companies and their contractors an opportunity to be acknowledged for their efforts in the areas of Environmental Stewardship, Safety Performance, and Community and Social Investment. Winners of the Eagle Ford Excellence Awards demonstrate innovation within the industry, make safety their largest priority and benefit the greater South Texas region through workforce development and education.

The keynote address at the awards ceremony was provided by Texas State Senator Pete Flores, District 19. Senator Flores spent most of his career as a Texas Game Warden, serving the State for 27 years and achieving the rank of Colonel. Senator Flores was elected in a special election in September 2018, becoming the first Hispanic Republican in the Texas Senate and the first Republican to represent Senate District 19 in over 139 years.
