Eagle Ford: STEPS Network to meet in Pleasanton
PLEASANTON -- Coastal Bend College has volunteered to be the host of the Eagle Ford Shale Service, Transmission, Exploration and Production Safety (STEPS) Network Chapter for the Pleasanton area. The STEPS Network is an all-volunteer based organization that promotes safety, health, and environmental improvement in the exploration and production of oil and gas across the country.
Meetings occur on the third Thursday of every month in the Jourdanton Library Community Center located at 1101 Campbell Ave. Many local organizations, businesses, and first responders come together to explore best practices in the areas of employee safety and health.
The STEPS Network meetings are held in collaboration with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Petroleum Education Council, Association of Energy Service Companies, and the International Association of Drilling Contractors. In addition to CBC, the following local businesses and organizations also participate: Jourdanton ISD; the office of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar; Odel Vasquez, mayor of Christine; and the Atascosa Health Center. More than 90 oil and gas industry representatives also attend the meetings.
A formal kickoff of the Eagle Ford Shale STEPS Network chapter is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 17, in the Cowboy Fellowship Church located at 561 F.M. 3350 in Jourdanton.
