Shell Marine Products recognized Buffalo Marine Service, Inc., Houston when they announced Buffalo as the recipient of Shell’s “Safety @ Heart” Award (2004) in the ‘Best Barge Contractor” category. The nomination and selection was worldwide in scope. Mr. Michiel Kool, Chief Executive Officer, Shell Marine Products, extended his personal “thanks for the considerable effort you have expended toward making our industry a safer place to do business.” Pat Studdert, President, Buffalo Marine Service acknowledged that selection and recognition by Shell Marine Products was an “honor” and recognition that “each day we attempt to do business that in a way that promotes a safer, cleaner and healthier environment in the Marine Industry” by a company such as Shell Marine Products (SMP) is a great “stimulus to all of us at Buffalo to continue our efforts.” Mr. Studdert added that, “this award touches the very heart of this company. Thank you. We are really excited.”

The safety program was begun internally at Shell about 4 years ago and encompasses not just safety in the work place but also at home and as a mind set for our life. The Shell internal program has been very successful and has resulted in markedly reduce injuries and accidents away from the workplace. Because of that success Shell executives chose to bring the “Safety @ Heart” program to their vendors and suppliers.

Buffalo Marine Service is a bunker company operating on the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast transporting bunker products for SMP.
