Minerals Management Service (MMS) has presented its Santa Maria Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE) to Chevron U.S.A. and Texaco Exploration and Production Inc.
 "Chevron and Texaco have set very high standards for safety by their technical accomplishments and commitment to protection of the environment while conducting federal offshore oil and natural gas operations," said Dr. J. Lisle Reed, regional director of the MMS Pacific OCS Region.
 The companies received the SAFE award in recognition of the exemplary manner in which they conducted their production operations in the Point Arguello Field on Platforms Harvest, Hermosa and Hidalgo in the Santa Maria Basin. The award further cited the Point Arguello field operators' professionalism and cooperation with the MMS in establishing an atmosphere which promotes a primary concern for human safety, the marine environment and adherence to governing regulations.
 Peter L. Tweedt, MMS deputy regional director, presented the SAFE citations and plaques during the Community Relations Night meeting of the Santa Maria Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) on May 13, in Santa Maria, Calif. Attending this meeting were representatives of the petroleum industry, state, local and federal officials and others from the community interested in offshore oil and gas activities. Robert E. Kallman, offshore program advisor for MMS, was the keynote speaker.
 "I join Secretary Manuel Lujan and MMS Director Scott Sewell in congratulating Chevron and Texaco and their employees," said Tweedt, "for achieving the goals of the SAFE program. Both Chevron and Texaco have maintained a constant awareness for the safety of personnel, protection of the environment and adherence to operating regulations."
 "Chevron is honored to receive the Minerals Management Service's Safety Award for Excellence for our Point Arguello Operations," said Donald A. Yunker, district manager of the Ventura District Production Department for Chevron U.S.A. Inc. "We have long considered the safe and environmentally sound startup of the giant Point Arguello Field to be a top corporate priority. It is our clear intention to live up to the high standards associated with this very prestigious award by continuing to conduct our operations in the most prudent manner possible."
 G.A. (Andy) Bressler, offshore area manager for Texaco, said, "The smooth start-up and safe operation of the Point Arguello project is the result of a commitment to safety which has been continuously exhibited by the employees of Texaco and Chevron.
 "I am especially proud of our Texaco employees," Bressler continued, "for their truly outstanding performance in maintaining safe and environmentally sound operations on Platform Harvest. Texaco is honored to be recognize by the MMS for this commitment."
