NEW YORK, NY, November 21, 2013 – Send Word Now, the leading worldwide provider of emergency notification and critical communications services, announced today its selection by Par Petroleum Corporation (OTC: PARR) to provide on-demand, multi-modal alerting in support of the Texas-based company’s business resilience plans.
Based in Houston, Par Petroleum Corporation is a diversified energy holding company. The organization manages and maintains interests in a variety of energy-related assets, including natural gas located in the Piceance Basin (CO); a crude oil logistics business focused on moving Canadian crude oil to the Gulf Coast; and an integrated refinery, distribution and marketing business in Hawaii.
For Par Petroleum Corporation, the Send Word Now Alerting Service will provide immediate notification to message recipients using various communication methods, including mobile devices, SMS and email.
