Congratulations to Aka Energy Group and Red Cedar Gathering Company for winning several prestigious safety awards from GPA Midstream Association! Aka Energy received first place for Best Safety Record in Division 4 (less than 50,000 midstream operational workhours), U.S. Category. Both Red Cedar and Aka Energy were recipients of the Perfect Record Award, which recognizes midstream industry companies with outstanding safety performance and is presented to those with no lost time accidents from January 1 through December 31, 2019. Additional recognition from the GPA Midstream included Red Cedar’s Arkansas Loop Plant and Aka’s Gilcrest Plant receiving a Five-year Facility Safety Award for operating without a lost time accident during that time period.
Coy Bryant, Acting President and Chief Operating Officer of Aka Energy Group/Red Cedar Gathering Company, stated, “This is a tremendous achievement and one all of our employees should be very proud of! Everyone contributed to these prestigious awards, and I appreciate their hard work and dedication of staying focused on our environmental, health and safety goals. I am confident that we will continue to be successful as a business if we keep the protection of our employees, contractors, the public and the environment as our top priority. Well done!”
The Gas Processors Association states on their website that “Although we weren’t able to honor these deserving companies in person at our GPA Midstream Convention this year, we certainly want to recognize and celebrate with them today. Congratulations, and thank you for your dedication to the midstream industry.” Great job Aka Energy Group and Red Cedar Gathering Company employees on working safely in 2019.
