Eagle Ford Team Honored for Community Support
Recently, Chesapeake’s Eagle Ford team was recognized for its community support and mobilization following the Uvalde tragedy. The South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER) hosted its 2022 Eagle Ford Excellence Awards, honoring industry organizations in the areas of environmental protection, technology, safety and community engagement.
“For the 10th year running, it is our honor to recognize the contributions of the oil and natural gas industry, our local partners, and elected officials whose work and commitment strengthen South Texas communities every day. This year’s Eagle Ford Excellence Award winners include innovators, environmental stewards, and community leaders who, year after year, positively impact the communities they serve,” said Glynis Strause of ConocoPhillips and a member of the STEER Advisory Council.
This year’s awards were presented at a luncheon event in San Antonio. Chesapeake received the Community and Social Investment award (for firms with more than 250 employees) after helping to raise more than $150,000 and volunteering more than 270 hours to support Uvalde victims and neighbors in need. Chesapeake employees partnered with first responders, educators and community members to provide food deliveries, supplies, first aid training and fundraising support.
