The Texas Oil and Natural Gas Industry is Hurricane Ready

Our companies and employees are ready to keep Texas running when the storm strikes.

Before the first hurricane of the season, we are preparing.
The Texas oil and natural gas industry is a vital part of the collaborative effort to keep our citizens safe.

We are also part of the Texas Division of Emergency Management’s Fuel Team, which works to ensure Texans have access to the gasoline and diesel they need before, during and after a natural disaster.

Once a hurricane strikes, we never stop working.
Our operators are working 24-7 to meet Texans’ fuel needs.

“Hurricane Ride Out Teams” include employees who volunteer to stay at facilities throughout a storm to ensure a safe and reliable fuel supply.

Our employees help coordinate rescue, relocation and other logistical support for families.

An army of refinery and pipeline workers and fuel suppliers work day and night to restock fuel and keep Texans driving.

Once the storm is over, it’s all-hands-on-deck for response and recovery efforts.
Our companies work around the clock to restart the network of coastal refineries and pipelines.

Companies donate fuel to communities and to aid first responders.

After every natural disaster, we thoroughly analyze our response to make our plans, procedures and working relationships with state and federal agencies even stronger than before.

Our commitment to Texas communities is unmatched, with millions of dollars and thousands of hours donated by companies and employees to assist in relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts including meals, home repairs and post-flood cleanup.
