The Global Energy Institute of the United States Chamber of Commerce runs a column called Energy Strong on their website. The most recent piece highlights the role energy industry played working alongside first responders during the recent catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Using video, Energy Strong shared stories about the industry stepping up in times of need. 

“The city of Deer Park (a suburb of Houston) and Shell have a strong relationship through the good times and the bad. This relationship was on display when the city’s retention ponds began to flood. Tracy and his team at Shell deployed a massive pump to help the city, saving hundreds of homes and businesses from flooding.”
