STEER, the South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable, presented Port Corpus Christi an award of excellence for Community and Social Investment during the 2016 Eagle Ford Excellence Awards in San Antonio on November 30.

The event recognizes energy sector entities for preserving the environment, contributing to local communities, and promoting workplace safety. The Community and Social Investment category pertains to organizations that provide a benefit to deserving individuals or groups, and a measureable positive impact in local communities.

STEER Eagle Ford Excellence Award recipients are recognized as leading organizations throughout the oil and gas industry and the Eagle Ford Shale region.

"Port Corpus Christi’s support for community is anchored on the premise that it is a privilege and a responsibility to help the region thrive," said Charles W. Zahn, Jr. Chairman of the Port Corpus Christi Commission. "Port Corpus Christi is committed to investing time and resources to strengthening the opportunities and further job creation in the region. This recognition is testament to the daily efforts of the port commission and staff to earn the unwavering support of the residents and businesses of the Coastal Bend. We thank STEER for their leadership in promoting the virtues of the South Texas energy industry and acknowledging Corpus Christi as the premiere gateway for energy in global trade."
