June 17, 2022 /CSRwire/ — Marathon Petroleum’s Logistics & Storage (L&S) organization was recently recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) for its outstanding environmental stewardship.
The Rear Admiral William M. Benkert Marine Environmental Protection Award for Excellence is the premier marine environmental protection award presented by the USCG to members of the marine industry. The biennial award recognizes corporations and businesses involved in marine facility or vessel operations that have demonstrated sustained excellence and outstanding achievement, beyond regulatory compliance, in protecting the marine environment. It also encourages innovations in operations, maintenance, cargo handling, refueling and training, and provides a means for award recipients to share their successful methods and techniques with others in the industry.
L&S, which includes the operations of Marine Transportation, Terminals and Marathon Pipe Line (MPL) organizations, was recognized at the gold level. Highlights of the organization’s efforts and successes over the past two years, which were acknowledged in winning the award, include:
“Marathon Petroleum’s Logistics and Storage is proud to be recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard for our marine environmental protection activities with the Gold Level Benkert Award,” said Environmental Safety, Security and Product Quality Manager Tim Haley. “This award is a reflection of the relentless pursuit of environmental excellence and the hard work and dedication of our employees and is an affirmation that our commitment to sustainability is making a difference in the communities where we have the privilege to operate.”
This is the tenth time an MPC operating component has been recognized as a Rear Admiral William M. Benkert Marine Environmental Protection Award for Excellence winner.
The award was recently presented during North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) Safety at Sea and Automated Mutual-assistance Vessel Rescue award seminar in Washington, DC.
