CITGO Wins Several Safety Excellence Awards
CITGO Petroleum Corporation recently received three safety awards for exceptional safety results in both its terminals and refining operations:
The International Liquid Terminals Association (ILTA) awarded CITGO terminals the Safety Excellence Award in recognition of outstanding safety performance in 2021. This is the most recent award from ILTA, which has previously recognized CITGO for its safety performance.
CITGO refineries in Lemont, Illinois and Corpus Christi, Texas both received the Safety Achievement Award from American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM). The award recognizes excellent safety performance across the oil and gas industry. This was the third consecutive year AFPM has recognized safety performance at CITGO refineries.
“Safety is the cornerstone of our operational excellence,” said CITGO President and CEO Carlos Jordá. “We are honored to receive these distinguished awards as testament to our efforts in maintaining the highest standards of operational safety at our refineries and terminals.”
CITGO operates three refineries with a combined crude capacity of 769,000 barrels per day, as well as 38 active terminals and six pipelines, making it one of the country’s largest distribution networks.
“We strive to build a resilient safety culture throughout our operations,” added Shane Moser, CITGO Vice President of Health, Safety & Environment. “ILTA and AFPM are champions of our industry, and their continued recognition of our safety culture is tremendously gratifying.”
ILTA, representing companies and partnerships that operate bulk liquid storage terminals worldwide, advocates on behalf of the liquid terminal industry and maintains close working relationships with other organizations that interact with the tank storage industry.
AFPM is the leading national trade association representing fuel and petrochemical manufacturers. AFPM members make and transport the fuels that keep Americans moving and the petrochemicals that are essential building blocks for modern life.
