ConocoPhillips Honors CBC with 2010 “Outstanding Operational Performance” Award

On September 29, 2010, ConocoPhillips honored Canal Barge Company with their 2010 award forĀ “Outstanding Operational Performance” at the second annual Conoco Carrier Conference in Houston, TX.

ConocoPhillips has been a valued customer of CBC for over 20 years, and our relationship is bigger and stronger than ever. We started moving Conoco lube oil in 1989 (from Lake Charles to Hartford, IL) and progressively grew this business over the years. In recent years, we have performed Deck Cargo Services work for Conoco, most notably the expansion of their Wood River, IL refinery. We have stored their asphalt at our Terminal since 2003, and we have also moved Conoco’s pet coke in our hopper barges. ConocoPhillips is the first customer to maintain regular business across all of our lines of operations. And of course, we added the Gulf Unit mariners and equipment in late 2007 to our operations.

It is truly an honor that our professional mariners and shoreside staff have earned this recognition from one of our most valued customers. Clearly, they know that when they entrust their cargo’s to CBC they can “Move with Confidence.”
