ConocoPhillips subsidiary wins U.S. Coast Guard maritime award

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has recognized Polar Tankers, Inc., a ConocoPhillips subsidiary, with the Rear Admiral William M. Benkert Osprey Award for Environmental Excellence. Vice Admiral Peter Neffenger, the USCG 29th Vice Commandant, presented the award at the American Petroleum Institute Tanker Conference.
 
The Benkert awards were created to recognize outstanding achievements in marine environmental protection that go beyond compliance with industry and regulatory standards. A committee reviews and scores award applications submitted biennially by maritime operators. The Osprey-level Benkert award is the highest environmental award given by the USCG.
 
Polar Tankers is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ConocoPhillips that includes five company-owned, double-hulled tankers, each with a million-barrel capacity and state-of-the-art redundant systems for environmental safety.


The company operates these Endeavour-class tankers in the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline System (TAPS) trade, loading crude oil in the Port of Valdez, Alaska, and delivering to terminals within Puget Sound, Wash.; San Francisco and LA/Long Beach, Calif.; and Hawaii.
