DCP Midstream, the largest producer of natural gas liquids, and the largest private company in Denver, has announced a major veterans’ initiative. Called Operation Next, the program will support counseling and job training efforts in Colorado, Texas, and Oklahoma. DCP Midstream frequently hires veterans for their nationwide workforce. The company is the largest energy company headquartered in Denver and operates in the most prominent natural gas producing basins in the U.S.
“Our overarching goal is to express our appreciation to these men and women who have nobly served our country,” says Roz Elliott, VP of Public Affairs and Investor Relations at DCP Midstream. “It is our belief that they will serve proudly again in their new careers here at home bringing energy security to our nation.”
DCP Midstream worked with The Denver Foundation, where the company’s charitable fund is held, to identify partner organizations who are serving veterans in the targeted areas where the company has operations. Coastal Bend College was selected due to its involvement in providing quality education and training for the Eagle Ford Shale/petroleum industry.
Coastal Bend College will receive $50,000 as part of the Operation Next initiative to help provide support for veterans in the form of tuition, scholarships, fees, books, or supplies for an oil, gas and petroleum degree and/or continuing education programs.
