STEM Camp Scholarships

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is proud to support Rice University’s STEM initiatives through scholarships for two students and three educators to come to the Say STEM Camp for students and the Project-Based-Learning Professional Development camp for educators.

Additionally, if others have the funds to sponsor additional participants (either students or educators) at $1,300 per person, ExxonMobil will provide a matching scholarship for an equal number of participants up to 10 campers. Students should be rising 8th-12th graders, and we especially encourage you to send 11th graders who are in the top 3 of their class to our Top 3 program. Educators can be anywhere from K-12 and can be STEM or non-STEM.

Recovering After Harvey

Rebuilding after the battering effects of Hurricane Harvey took time, but thankfully ExxonMobil’s Texas communities pulled together to make recovery a little easier. During the storm, a small live-in crew at the Baytown Refinery made sure that all operations were under control and any repairs were immediately taken care of–but they didn’t stop there. Employees used excess pipes to build a temporary pumping system, restoring water in Beaumont in as little as three days. Altogether, employees helped distribute 30,000 bottles of water and about 400 pounds of toiletries to Beaumont. In addition, ExxonMobil workers, volunteers and independent business owners united to raise a $2 million relief fund for impacted communities. Read more about the Hurricane Harvey recovery.

Safety and Trainings

Pipelines are the safest way to transport oil and natural gas, but we still want our communities prepared for anything. ExxonMobil Pipeline Company sponsors local and regional emergency responders to participate in training programs, such as the Texas A&M Engineering Extensions Service (TEEX), to ensure they have the education and resources to handle any situation. We also are committed to continuously improving safety of pipelines and are consistently developing technologies to help prevent potential emergencies.

Partnering with TEEX

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is proud to partner with the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service on a course to train firefighters who may respond to ExxonMobil assets.

Partnering with TEEX

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company pays for the course fees, including tuition, some lodging and meals, for class participants. Following successful sessions last year, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is continuing its support by offering more classes with the goal of training a total of 300 first responders by the end of 2020. Responders will receive valuable knowledge they will need to help protect their communities and families in the event of an industrial type emergency.

The 2020 class sessions are offered June 27-28, September 26-27, and December 5-6, and are held at the TEEX Emergency Services Training Institute on Brayton Fire Training Field in College Station, Texas.
