Crosby Employee Recognized as Winner for the Month, Quarter and Year
Congratulations to Travis Johnson for outstanding work and forward thinking—a combination that saved lives! Travis was working in the Permian Basin when he was called to respond to a power outage on PME 53. When Travis arrived at the site he noticed that all three line fuses were blown. But before replacing the fuses, he decided to travel the line to see make certain there weren’t any downed power lines further along.
Travis was ten miles down the line and into the University lease and noticed a bucket truck with two men in the air and four men on the ground. All were working around a broken power pole. Travis interviewed the men and discovered that another oil company had struck and broken the power pole while moving a rig. The other electricians had been called in to repair the pole—but without notifying Shell that there was a problem.
If Travis had not had the foresight and initiative to travel the power line, his own repair work could have resulted in a fatality.
This forward thinking has earned him Shell’s Goalie Award for not just the month, but for the quarter … and the year! The Goalie program is designed to recognize Upstream Americas Onshore Gas employees and contractors who take proper and proactive steps to ensure the healthiest, safest, most secure and most environmentally friendly operation possible. Congrats, Travis. We are all very proud of you!
