That being said, in those 5 years I have never heard Dennis complain about his job. He has had his tough days at work and outside of work, with the loss of close family members this past year. Regardless, Dennis always shows up ready for the next days adventure with a positive mindset. He strives on working closely with his teammates, whether that is good conversation, or suiting up to work along side them on busy days. He makes it his mission to ensure everyone is on the same page and that his crews work safely to go home to their families at the end of the day. Dennis is also the type of guy who welcomes you with open arms and makes you feel like part of the family, not only to his crew but also to our customers. I know his teammates across the board think highly of him and respect him for being a great mentor. On behalf of myself and his crew members, we want to thank him for all his hard work, his positive attitude, and his strong values as a person in general.

As far as the headline: (Reserved for El Toro) Someone had a sign made that is located outside of his office building with that phrase. We feel Dennis has earned the title ‘The Bull.”

His ability and willingness to act quickly likely saved BMSWD from seeing extended downtime. Dave demonstrated his pride and “do what it takes” mentality during a time of year that is less than ideal to be executing on critical maintenance.

The focus and reason for making his suggestion was driven around safety, care and commitment to serve MI Ops. These tank turnaround activities are high risk tasks and are undertaken once per year which can impact the confidence and competency to complete this work by MI operations personnel. The overall goal is to remove MI Ops out of harms way and allow them to focus on their daily tasks. THANK YOU David for being an awesome teammate!!! Appreciate it.

Did the right thing

Description of what this person did, and how it shows our values:
email recieved this morning from Adam McDonald:

Good morning everyone, this morning on the way out to site, Marc Magee came across a mini van in the ditch along HI Way 9 at about 6:30am. He noticed the van was badly dented, windshield all smashed and hazard lights flashing. Marc pulled over and stopped to find a young man walking around very cold and in shock. Upon looking farther, he noticed a second young man in the minivan. It turns out two 16year old boys left Saskatoon at 3:30am this morning heading to a hockey training camp. The young boy driving fell asleep at the wheel, went into the ditch, and rolled the van. Both boys were very shaken up and cold. Lucky no major injuries were detected at this time. Marc got both into his truck to warm up right away. He them got them to the Cactus Corner truck stop where they were able to make the appropriate phones calls to authorities and the respected families. This is a perfect example of the great men and women we have working in this company that look out for everyone whether that be a coworker at work on site or a stranger in the in the community. I felt Marc deserved some recognition for his efforts this morning.

Description of what this person did, and how it shows our values:
The lack of rain and dry conditions, made for ideal conditions for A wildfire. April 30, 2021, a wildfire started approximately 17 km northwest of the pembina landfill. The wind was very strong gusting to 50 km/h out of the northwest, potentially putting the pembina landfill at risk if the fire spread quickly. Could cause financial loss and damage to secure property.

Before leaving the site for the end of the day Mark shut down all leachate systems/ closed tank valves. The equipment was moved into the middle of the cell to protect it in case of the fire spread. Mark notified Darcy Hoiland/ Matt Taylor of the situation.

Mark showed great proactive efforts in the situation.

Description of what this person did, and how it shows our values:
Scale administrator Shelly Penner made an observation about some waste coming in, that she couldn’t tell if it was gel chem or invert on the camera, but the driver said that it was still gel chem & had the gel chem SCA approval number on his tickets. She said that it was strange that they would still be on gel chem, & operator mentioned that the 2 loads he had dumped previously within 12 hours looked like invert. Shelly called the consultant on site & he confirmed that they had switched to invert 2 loads ago, but he had neglected to change the number on the board during shift change, & that’s what caused the confusion. Operator stopped driver before dumping this 3rd load with the other 2 loads & grabbed a sample which passed. Shelly changed the paperwork & reissued it to the driver. She then made the changes in AX to reflect the loads of invert. This was a great catch by Shelly & prevented a non-compliance from occurring.

He also worked extra hours over the weekend outside (in the middle of a 20cm day snow storm) because of the time crunch, the short time frame provided and timing of availability of items required to complete modifications. The equipment was ready as set by the deadline that was agreed to all without complaints or issues arising requiring more time then what was allotted. He rolled with the project and was very good about communicating what was going on in an effort to make sure the equipment was going to work in the fashion that was going to be required. At the same time completing a bunch of his other regular work to make sure that the other items and work remaining on track.

The project is substantial as it affects all Secure MI Facilities and is a material change to how we conduct facility orientations – this is a step towards Doing Midstream Differently.

With little experience managing projects of this nature, Mona leveraged her project team, stakeholders, and the OE Project Execution Framework to stand the project up, develop a plan, and are in the early stages of execution. She has built trust with Operations and I am certain the outcome of this project will be a significant value add to the organization.

Thank you Mona, for having an open mind, learning, and the tenacity to move this forward – Great work.

Description of what this person did, and how it shows our values:
There was a motor failure on one of the injection pumps at BMSWD last week. We were waiting on a failure/damage report before proceeding with a decision to repair or buy new. Thursday night at 7pm we learnt that the motor could not be repaired. I was out of cell service from early Friday morning for the entire long weekend, therefore unable to provide the necessary assistance.

Tyson stepped up on his unpaid day, verified the motor quotes for compatibility/install requirements, finalized and submitted the AFE request and had the replacement motor ordered just after lunchtime on Friday.

Tyson, your effort and willingness to help was and is much appreciated. Due to Tyson’s timely actions it limited the downtime of the pump to only two weeks from the day of failure! Huge win for Secure and the BMSWD Facility.

Thanks Tyson!

Mark Holman and myself talked and had Morgan see if there was anything missed in the past to cause issues here. After a lot of digging and perseverance Morgan found a “witches hat” in line in the system which is very rare and found it to be plugged solid. After a thorough clean the system is running as it should saving the company thousands of dollars. excellent work on his behalf.

And the crazy part is she gets it done for us every – single – day. You won’t sneak anything past her either! But for good reason – she handles our money & our vendors and there is no grey area with either. Thelecia takes a lot of pride in what she does, her attention to detail is evident, and she holds herself just as accountable. Countless times I have seen her green light on saying she is on her computer late at night meeting a deadline or fulfilling a promise. Thelecia we sure appreciate ALL that you do.

Stuart has been a key member of the team helping us on two fronts in the past 6 months.

Stuart’s painstaking attention to detail when analyzing customer data and preparing the reports that accompany this research has been beyond the call of duty.

Stuart then takes the time and care to ensure that I understand fully what we are presenting, allowing me to offer more future value to our customers.

In addition to these roles of researcher and teacher, the then is the face of the SECURE lab team when we present to customers. When Stuart presents, he ensures that all information is accessible to everyone in the room, regardless of their previous understanding of the subject matter.

We have had some difficult and at times seemingly unreasonable requests, but Stuart is able to handle them all in stride; as a result of this history and credibility built with customers, we are able to decline some requests, and the justification Stuart provides is taken very well, as they trust his recommendations.

Stuart is an invaluable part of this team, and contributes to our reputation as a company that will apply as much science and testing to the solutions we offer.

The feedback I get from my clients regarding Stuart’s contributions is incredible.

With the procedures & processes she has put in place, they now have much better control of their numbers and are now able to better explain variances across all the facilities. This has been extremely helpful to the rest of the Commercial team. Angie has provided a lot of guidance to everyone on her team and through her leadership, ability to teach, friendly demeanour and patience, she has provided an environment to allow her team to progress. This is also evident with the increased level of confidence some of her team members have demonstrated.

She has also done a great job of promoting from within by taking on two individuals in the last year that had no prior marketing accounting experience. Through her commitment to developing those people, the transition has been a success!

Thank you Angie. You are a valued member of the Secure team!

His attendance and suggestions for improvement at the project kickoff meeting were very well received by our customer. There have been some issues along the way, whether with organics being considered an issue, to the water going a bit sour. Bruce has been proactive and ahead of these issues, ensuring things continue running and the customer is happy.

Bruce, I want to say Thank You. Your efforts, great customer service and commitment to this project have made a real impact.

The operation was completed without putting anyone at risk. Nice work Brad!!

Treated Others the Way They Want to be Treated,Did the Right Thing,

Description of what this person did, and how it shows our values:
Dennis went out of his way to invite myself and Derek Gould (lead operator at Gold Creek) to accompany him to his safety meetings at Gordondale and Spirit River. This was a refreshing change from the everyday and a good eye-opener as the how facilities in another area conduct their safety meetings. Any little aspect that can be taken away to make our meetings more engaging and productive could only help make our company as a whole be safer.

It was also very nice to be able to tour facilities that we only hear about and meet fellow operators/managers that we would otherwise only talk to over the phone. Dennis made it a point to introduce us to everyone, which made us feel as though we were right at home and comfortable enough to speak up and express our opinions, even though we were outsiders from the group.

Can’t say enough about how much little things like this go such a long way in making employees feel involved and important within Secure Energy. I found this to be a great training/learning exercise that more operators and leaders should be involved in.

Thanks Dennis for thinking outside the box and stepping up to invite us along. Appreciate it!

Further, a rig was experiencing some tight time restraints on Wednesday for paperwork so she gave her personal cell number to the consultants and stressed in an email that as soon as they were done hauling, that she would invoice them within the hour – whenever that might be.

Carol has shown incredible dedication and commitment to customers and worked with them to get the job done. Thanks to her, my visits to rigs are unanimously met with the comment “I haven’t had Any problems, you guys have been great!”

I’ve been involved in change order discussions before, not on this scale or $ value.
