For the past three years – the Oil & Gas Awards have been recognizing outstanding achievement in corporate social responsibility, the environment, and health and safety.   This year – Range Resources took home the VZ Environmental Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship. 

The annual Northeast ceremony and conference was held on March 25, 2015 at Pittsburgh’s Westin Convention Center.  Hundreds of oil and gas employees gathered to celebrate Operational Excellence, innovations in technology, Corporate Responsibility, Health & Safety and Environmental Stewardship. The VZ Environmental Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship recognizes any efforts, initiatives or technological developments that have minimized or eliminated the environmental footprint of the oil and gas industry.  Winners are said to have shown true innovation in environmental stewardship, practices or technology which has proven to be economically sustainable and has a clear environmental benefit.  Range Resources scored highest in the category, with judges remarking:  

The Oil & Gas Awards recognize outstanding achievements made within the upstream and midstream sectors of the North American oil and gas industry. The Awards are a platform for the industry to demonstrate and celebrate the advances made in the key areas of environment, efficiency, innovation, corporate social responsibility and health and safety. The Awards show the industry’s motivation to develop these areas by recognizing and rewarding the efforts of corporations and individuals.

For Range – environmental, health and safety stewardship is a core commitment that starts with our Board of Directors and extends to our 900 employees.  Dramatic improvements in air quality, including a 20-year low for CO2 emissions, are among the industry achievements we are proud to be a part of; while we recognize the need to continue leveraging new, innovative practices to further raise the bar for our company and our industry.
