Program Overview

Recycle The Gulf

OEG Offshore’s Recycle the Gulf is an environmental program designed to reduce and recycle waste generated offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Utilizing OEG’s Enviro-Pak waste compactor product line, recyclables can be collected, sorted and compacted on the rig.

All recyclables are donated to a Louisiana-based partner, The Arc of Acadiana, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
