Dallas, Texas – October 27, 2014 – Breitling Energy (OTCBB: BECC) announced today it received the award for Excellence in Social Responsibility at the Southwest Region Oil and Gas Awards held last week in Dallas.
The awards presentation, which recognizes top-performing companies in the industry, stretches across 7 regions including Canada. Top contenders in other categories in the Southwest Region included companies like Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHI) and Halliburton (NYSE: HAL), winner of three categories.
“When Baker Hughes and Halliburton won some of the early categories, I knew the caliber of competition we were up against,” said Chris Faulkner, Breitling Energy CEO. “It goes without saying, this is a tremendous honor to even be nominated, much less win among these distinguished colleagues.”
Judges particularly noted Breitling Energy‘s highly visible public profile, which includes its CEO’s frequent appearances in the media and press. “Oil and gas companies typically are not as out front, and I took a different tact,” Faulkner said. “I’ve always been an advocate of putting myself and our company’s brand out there so people can get to know who we are and what we’re doing.”
In addition to Faulkner’s regular appearances on prominent cable news channels and national publications, Breitling Energy also sponsors “Powering America”, a daily 1-hour talk radio show dedicated to discussing the shale oil revolution. The show is syndicated in 11 large markets around the country. Faulkner released his first book, “The Fracking Truth” in 2014 to brisk sales. The company also produced a pro-fracking documentary, “Breaking Free”, which has been viewed in private showings following a New York City debut in June.
