The South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER) is looking for nominations for its third annual Eagle Ford Excellence Awards ceremony to be held in November.

The awards are focused on honoring members of the oil and gas community for efforts to preserve the environment, ensure safety in and around the Eagle Ford Shale region and give back to the community they live in and serve.

“STEER and its members place a premium on safety, environmental protection and solid community involvement throughout the Eagle Ford Shale region. It is important to recognize companies and organizations who share our value and vision,” says Omar Garcia, president and CEO. “Past years’ recipients demonstrated their dedication to the region, through their impressive innovation, safety performance and educating the oil and gas industry’s future workforce.”
