"America is beautiful, and Gulf and I work at keeping it that way." 
Evanda Gale Jefferson, Senior Chemist

"It takes a lot of water to refine crude oil. We use hundreds of thousands of gallons a day in the cooling systems of our refineries. 
"That's where I come in, my training in analytical and environmental chemistry includes the inspection and testing of incoming water. I'm part of a team that makes sure that after we use the water, it gets pumped back into our rivers and lakes even cleaner than when we took it out.
"Responsible energy management is a big challenge. It costs money and takes trained people to do the job. I am one of the first chemists to take part in Gulf's training program in advanced environmental research and management techniques. Gulf has a commitment to keep the oil flowing. We also have a commitment to protect the environment.
"I'm proud of my position and Gulf's contributions to a better environment." 

Human Energy: America's greatest resource.
