Local oil and gas company Signal Hill Petroleum (SHP) has been honored with three corporate responsibility awards in their role as a self-defined “leading producer of sustainable gas and oil.”
The 2013 West Coast Oil and Gas Awards Ceremony, held this year in Bakersfield, gave the company its Corporate Social Responsibility Award for their series of programs that contribute to community betterment. Specifically noted in the recognition was their Long Beach Movies at the Park, which has garnered $125,000 in donations from SHP for the Long Beach Food for Kids Program.
33rd District Senator Ricardo Lara also recently honored SHP, along with 22 other businesses, with his Excellence in Business Award.
“We’re honored to receive the Excellence in Business Award from Senator Lara,” said Dave Slater, COO of Signal Hill Petroleum, in a statement. “Oil production is a major driver to the American economy. Our mission is to ensure American energy security, American jobs and American prosperity through investing in our local community.”
Lastly, SHP was honored by the City of Signal Hill as the 2013 Celebrated Business Sponsor at the annual Community Services Department Volunteer & Sponsor Awards and Recognition Banquet. In total, SHP has donated $140,000 to the community’s parks and recreation programs, a feat that the City formally recognized at its event.
