The Strategic Petroleum Reserve 2011 Drawdown Team is recognized for exemplary performance in the successful sale, drawdown and delivery of 30 million barrels of crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve after the President ordered a drawdown of the Reserve to join the International Energy Agencyâs collective response to the shutdown of Libya's oil industry. The 2011 Strategic Petroleum Reserve drawdown was the largest emergency release of strategic petroleum stocks ever accomplished and was completed on time and without any accidents, environmental incidents, or delivery problems. It was also the first time that the President did not provide a waiver to Jones Act requirements that would have allowed foreign marine vessels to load and deliver the Strategic Petroleum Reserveâs crude oil.
