GPA Midstream, GPSA announce safety award winners

June 4, 2020 By    

GPA Midstream AssociationThe GPA Midstream Association and affiliated midstream suppliers association GPSA named midstream industry safety award recipients for their outstanding 2019 safety performances.

“The midstream industry is not alone in experiencing unprecedented challenges and tough times right now, so it’s nice to be able to share some good news,” says Joel Moxley, president and CEO of GPA Midstream. “Although we weren’t able [to] honor these companies in person at our GPA Midstream Convention as usual due to COVID-19, we certainly want to recognize and celebrate with them today. I’m proud to congratulate each and say ‘thank you’ for making safety a top priority.”

The four GPA Midstream award divisions are determined by a range of midstream operational work hours, ranging from fewer than 50,000 to more than one million hours, for both U.S. and international companies.

The top two entries in each division are selected according to the lowest total cases incidence rate (TCR), lowest fatalities plus lost workdays incidence rate (LTR) and the highest number of work hours reported.

For 2019, member companies submitted safety statistics covering more than 76 million operational work hours.

1st Place – Western Midstream Partners (The Woodlands, Texas)
2nd Place – MPLX (Findlay, Ohio)

Chairman’s Award for Safety Improvement

GPA Midstream also recognized four companies with the Chairman’s Award for Safety Improvement for notably improving their respective safety performances in 2019: Enerfin Resources (Houston), Energy Transfer (Dallas), ONEOK (Tulsa, Oklahoma), and Saudi Aramco (Dhahran, Saudi Arabia).

GPSA safety awards are based on each company’s 2019 Occupational Safety and Health Administration records, as well as a three-year history of active programs promoting safety and displaying safety improvement.

GPSA safety honors are presented to: Enerflex Energy Systems (Calgary, Alberta), ENGlobal U.S. (Houston), Gulf Interstate Engineering (Houston), Interstate Treating (Odessa, Texas), Mustang Sampling (Ravenswood, West Virginia), Saulsbury Industries (Odessa), Tower Force (Deer Park, Texas), WSP USA (New York) and ZAP Engineering & Construction Services (Lakewood, Colorado).

GPA Midstream and GPSA traditionally present these and other awards to companies and individuals at the GPA Midstream Convention, where more than 2,000 midstream professionals gather, but this year’s annual meeting scheduled for mid-April in New Orleans was canceled due to the coronavirus.

In lieu of on-site recognitions, the association released an awards video to give due credit to recipients of the 2020 honors.
