MMS Reveals SAFE Award Finalists for Outer Continental Shelf

The Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service today announced the national finalists for the Safety Awards for Excellence (SAFE) competition sponsored by the Minerals Management Service. Presented annually to Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas operators and contractors who achieve excellence in safety and pollution prevention, the National SAFE awards recognize outstanding performance by the offshore industry.

"The SAFE award is one of the highest honors MMS can bestow upon a company," said MMS acting Director Walter Cruickshank. "It signifies that safety and environmentally sound operations are the top priority for an offshore operator."

The 2009 SAFE categories and finalists (in alphabetical order) are:

High OCS Activity Moderate OCS Activity
Drilling Contractor Production Contractor
Anadarko Petroleum Co. Badger Oil Corp. Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc. Baker Energy

BP Corp North America Inc.

 

BHP Billiton Petroleum Inc. ENSCO International Inc. C&D Production Specialist Co.
Devon Energy Production Co. Hunt Petroleum Inc. Noble Drilling Corp. Inc. Danos & Curole Marine Contractors
ExxonMobil Corp. Noble Energy, Inc.    


OCS oil and gas operators from the high and moderate categories as well as drilling and production contractors are eligible to be selected as finalists for the award. A company that qualifies under the high activity category produces at least 10 million barrels of oil per year and operates a minimum of 1,000 in-service components during the year. A moderate activity company produces at least one million barrels of oil per year and operates a minimum of 100 in-service components during the year. The MMS selects one winner from each category.

The National SAFE Awards will be presented at an Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) luncheon on May 7, 2009, at 12 noon, in Room 300, Level 2, of the Reliant Center in Houston, Texas.
