A Good Neighbor

We pride ourselves in being a good neighbor – environmentally, aesthetically and in supporting the communities where we work and live. When it became apparent that our waterflood operations were no longer economically sustainable, we demonstrated our commitment to environmental responsibility by plugging all water intake wells in the 1990s. When building roads, clearing locations and drilling wells, we go above and beyond what is required of us by regulatory agencies. Our production sites are kept neat and well-maintained.


We have solid professional relationships with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the United States Forest Service, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Office of Natural Resources Revenue, among many other federal, state, and local agencies.

MROC supports a wide range of community organizations and played a key role in the resurrection of the Associate Degree program in Petroleum Technology at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. Additionally, we financially supported the petroleum vocational training at Bradford Area High School, thus fostering a skilled workforce for our industry and bolstering the economy of our region.
