Protecting and preserving the environment is a long-standing and deep-rooted principle for everyone at Murphy Oil Corporation. At all levels of the Company, Murphy employees work capably and conscientiously to complete the complex tasks required to safely locate, produce, refine and market the petroleum products on which our world depends.
The Company’s founder, Charles Murphy, was a forerunner in the environmental awareness movement of the 1960s, and was instrumental in establishing a productive dialog among a number of historically opposed consortiums, including oil industry executives, environmental conservation leaders, and government officials. His tireless efforts helped lead to new standards and practices for the oil and gas industry. In recognition of his efforts, Mr. Murphy received Chevron’s Conservation award in 1999.
