Oil & Gas Awards Judges Comments

“Like the little engine that could, it is growing from an independent to a strong force that can compete on many fronts: traditional/conventional oil and gas, application and investment in new technologies, future engagement in resource plays, community outreach with concrete contributions & benefits, satisfied employees and visionary leaders. Metrics are going in the right direction with impressive CAGR.”

“Chaparral’s no-nonsense, direct contributions of its employees’ time and the company’s financial contributions to the communities in which it operates were impressive in their wide variability. In addition, Chaparral broadly supported industry organizations with financial assistance.”
