Ohio Oil & Gas Gas Lobby Day is Wednesday in Columbus

Oil & Gas Lobby Day at the Ohio Statehouse on Wednesday, Jan. 23:

By: the Ohio Oil & Gas Association, the Ohio Petroleum Council and the Ohio Shale Coalition


Recently, concerns have surfaced regarding hiring practices of oil and gas companies operating in Ohio. While it's true that some oil and gas producers may have to temporarily transport experienced, highly-skilled oil and gas professionals to work on drilling rigs, it doesn't acknowledge that companies have hired local Ohioans to work for them and the reality that local drilling-related Ohio oil and gas businesses are expanding and thriving.


OOGA would like to invite all of our members to an oil and gas industry day at the Ohio Statehouse where those individuals who work either directly or indirectly for the oil and gas industry have an opportunity to talk to their legislators about the positive workforce and economic impact that they have in their community. In between member meetings with legislators, OOGA will host a legislative luncheon where all members of the Ohio legislature will be invited to have lunch with the day's participants.
