Environmental Health and Safety
We are committed to doing things the right way at Red Willow.
Protecting the environment and the health and safety of employees, contractors,
and other community members is part of our culture. We manage and operate our
assets in full compliance with applicable environmental, health and safety laws,
regulations and internal standards. In fact, we operate with a philosophy of
"compliance plus", in which we go beyond the routine safety and environmental
regulations by implementing many best management practices. We continually
seek opportunities to advance our operations in the areas of health, safety
and the environment.
A core value of ours is the health and safety of employees, contractors,
local communities and others that our operations could affect. Red Willow
works hard to take care of our employees and contractors by providing
extensive training and technical support. We foster a safety culture
that is proactive and compassionate.
At the onset of a new project, we work to comprehend the environmental
issues and cultural considerations of an area. As an example, in the
San Juan Basin many locations have more than one production well which
reduces the number of individual facilities, requires fewer roads and
pipelines, and ultimately results in less surface disturbance from our
operations. We proactively and voluntarily have implemented measures
to reduce engine and greenhouse gas emissions. Our aggressive approach
to minimizing environmental impacts includes prompt reclamation of
disturbed areas and extensive erosion control.
We understand the importance of respecting the environment and preventing
injury to people. We work hard to make a positive difference.
