The safety of our workers and the community is our top priority, and this was a great opportunity to have a discussion and tour with Christine Baker, Ellen Widess and Amy Coombes.  We thank them for their time, and we are grateful to all of the outstanding men and women of Shell who work diligently toward the goal of everyone going home safely every single day.
