Friday, September 30, 2022

Marathon Petroleum, Denbury Resources and Enerplus were recognized by the North Dakota Petroleum Council during an awards ceremony at last week's annual meeting in Watford City.

This awards include:

Excellence in Safety
Denbury Resources received the award for completing its CCA CO2 Installation Project without a single OSHA recordable incident. That's remarkable given the size, scale, and duration of this project. Denbury’s project included the installation of over 130 miles of pipe across Montana and North Dakota. At peak activity, there were as many as 750 contractors working. The pipeline crossed over 400 other pipelines and flowlines, and over 600,000 manhours were worked throughout the entire project.

Excellence in Community Engagement
Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) received the award for its community investment strategy. It centered around strengthening communities where the company operates and helping improve lives through volunteering and monetary contributions. From 2018-2021, the MPC team contributed nearly 2,000 volunteer hours in North Dakota, as well as more than $1.1 million to organizations focused on strengthening youth education and promoting career development.

Excellence in Environmental Stewardship
Enerplus received the award for its Emissions Reduction Budget. As part of its inaugural ESG report in 2020, Enerplus supported seven employee-generated emission reduction initiatives, creating an estimated year-end reduction of nearly 200,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent.
