We believe focused innovation programs provide unique opportunities for entrepreneurs and ventures to expand their business. These programs can help boost job creation and economic growth, and offer them opportunities to participate in our expanding energy and chemicals supply chain. For us, localized supply chains mean we can maintain the reliability and efficiency of our operations.
In the past, the resilience of our network of local suppliers was shown during supply-chain disruptions. We were able to continue operations, and carry on delivering crude oil and refined products to our customers around the globe.
We have since continued to improve the reliability of our supply chains by forming and developing partnerships with global leaders in energy, logistics, and manufacturing, along with emerging talents in these industries and beyond.
