Management of the Legal and Regulatory Environment
Management of the Legal and Regulatory
Milestone proactively monitors issues that can affect our operations and our workforce.
We stay at the forefront of emerging legislation and policy by monitoring the activities of legislative and regulatory bodies at all levels, and by participating in various industry organizations and associations:
- Energy Workforce & Technology Council
- Texas Oil & Gas Association
- Permian Basin Petroleum Association
Milestone regularly responds to invitations by regulators to comment on proposed legislation that impacts our sector. We regularly respond to invitations for comment and participate in public forums, meetings, and information sessions held by regulatory agencies discussing matters relevant to our operations. This effective monitoring allows us to anticipate changes to industry regulations and modify our processes as necessary to maintain the safety of our employees, operations, and the public.
As a good steward of the industry, we seek to inform our clients and the public on the nature of our operations. We routinely provide tours of our facilities to clients, third-party auditors, and regulatory agencies to show that our standards are that of an industry-leading company. At public events, we seek to enhance stakeholders’ knowledge of our practices, allowing them greater comfort in knowing their neighbor is working hard to keep them and its employees safe.
