The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Chairman’s Stewardship Awards. These awards represent the IOGCC’s highest honor for exemplary efforts in environmental stewardship.
These awards recognize those companies and organizations that have gone beyond basic mandates and regulations to enhance our nation’s natural resources. The award-winning projects represent a few of the many positive programs initiated by the domestic oil and natural gas industry.
The intention of the awards is to recognize achievement and challenge organizations, companies and individuals nationwide to demonstrate innovation, dedication and passion for our environment.
The winners will be announced at the IOGCC Annual Meeting in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho on September 30 – October 2, 2018 and the attending governors will present the awards in the four categories: Energy Education, Environmental Partnership, Large Company and Small Company.
Organizations or individuals may apply on their own behalf or nominate another project. Past winners are encouraged to apply with new projects. Previous projects that have received honorable mention may resubmit the project if it has been enhanced or revised.
Stewardship within the oil and natural gas industry is one of the great untold success stories and the projects represent only a sample of those in operation throughout the world.
Nominations must be received on or before Thursday, August 2, 2018.
Representing 38 states and 10 international affiliates, the IOGCC mission is to promote the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment.
