Making industry operations more energy efficient makes sense on two levels: It’s good for the environment and it’s good for business. It’s another way the oil and natural gas industry is making a difference in areas and communities across the country.

Protecting our habitats is something industry has championed for some time. Back in 1987, Occidental Petroleum came across a rare looking plant on one of its drilling sites in Colorado. The plant, later identified as the parachute penstemon, can only be found in Colorado and is considered one of the rarest plants in North America.

Access to land and water is important to industry, but these are critical to the wildlife that live there, from birds and butterflies to all kinds of animal life. The use of modern hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling – which allows widespread oil and gas operations from a single surface well pad – is a big part of limiting industry’s footprint. So is understanding the local wildlife.

Part of industry’s commitment to the country and its future growth and prosperity is supporting the educational needs of the next-generation workforce that will bring that future to life.
With experts saying much of that growth and prosperity – as well as the accompanying careers – will be built on a foundation of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, a major part of industry’s outreach is focused on developing students’ interest in these topics as early as possible.
