Red Willow is a proponent of environmental stewardship and we strive for minimal impacts to the air, water, and land during our drilling and operations activities.  Environmental management programs are in place to reduce air emissions, prevent and respond to releases, protect water resources, work collaboratively with landowners, and to minimize wildlife and habitat disturbance.  We manage and operate our assets in full compliance with applicable environmental, health and safety, State, Federal, and Tribal regulations and internal standards.
