West Texas: Environmental Award

Environmental Protection

Care for and consideration of the environment is an essential part of Pioneer’s way of doing business, a clear indication of what the company values for its employees and its community members. As such, Pioneer was awarded the 2009 Bruno Hanson/Midland College Award for Environmental Excellence at the Executive Oil & Gas Conference.

This prestigious award recognizes Pioneer’s achievements related to its spill management program and pollution prevention initiatives in the Permian Basin. Reasons for selection include the company’s demonstration of corporate and environmental stewardship in all operating areas, its extensive training in proactive safety measures that empower employees to prevent pollution, as well as its spill management and prevention policies.

Pioneer’s strong spill management program is critical to the company’s Permian operations and has been lauded for its commitment to safety and strong ecological practices. This pollution prevention program has also had a positive impact in the community and includes investigative and preventative teams that review monthly spill reports, identify root causes, and recommend new policies or procedures. Industry experts in pollution prevention also provide certified training to field personnel and spill training for employees.

Pioneer is honored to be recognized for environmental excellence and for its close relationship to the community. Through its policies and practices, the company works to make a difference throughout this region and in every region in which it operates.
