There was a time when opposition to energy and utility projects was limited to fossil fuel transportation projects. That has evolved.
Activists today have well-developed coalitions, communications channels and playbooks for shutting down production sites, supply chains, power plants, pipelines and now, even renewable energy developments.
While opposition tactics have evolved to include legislative campaigns, legal delays, and sophisticated brand/reputation assaults, protests and damage at work sites, offices and executive residences remain the low-hanging fruit and go-to tactics for groups opposed to energy development. And rest assured that activist will rally should an energy company have any misstep, accident or oil spill.
Summit has secured hundreds of facilities, thousands of miles of pipeline projects, and billions of dollars in project investment. We have worked around the clock to keep protestors at bay in trying times such as an oil spill response. No other off-duty officer staffing service matches the level of partnership we provide to the energy and utilities industry.
