OOGA Celebrates 70 Years at the Annual Winter Meeting

The Ohio Oil and Gas Association hosted its 70th annual Winter Meeting in Columbus on March 8th – March 10th which brought together more than 800 attendees including members and top industry leaders from Ohio and the nation to provide the most current updates of the state’s oil and gas industry. There was a more optimistic mood throughout this year’s event as the industry has been experiencing a moderate increase from last year’s downturn.

The first day of the event kicked off with what is considered a day of “pre-meeting events,” with OOGA hosting its Executive Committee and Board of Trustees to convene and continue to work towards improving the Association. Evening receptions followed on day one and two that allowed for attendees to network and the Association thank attendees for their support.

The next two days held the main events including updates from national authorities, state elected officials, and included production, exploration, legal and legislative industry information. We were excited to host this year’s keynote speaker Robert Bryce, a prominent energy journalist. Bryce covered an array of topics in his address Texas LNG to Kuwait: The Upside-Down, Post-Paris, Post-Trump Global Energy Landscape

While the business session presentations were occurring an industry trade show was simultaneously taking place in the halls of the venue. This year the Association had 80 exhibitor booths displaying products, demonstrating new equipment techniques, and representing multifaceted components of the industry. As attendees came and went and transitioned between business sessions, they engaged with exhibitors showing the latest in oil and gas.

And of course this event would not be possible without our sponsors. The OOGA appreciates the support from each and every one of you. We would also like to extend a special thank you to our premier event sponsors Ergon Oil Purchasing, Inc., Ergon Trucking Inc., Dominion East Ohio and American Refining Group. 

The Association hopes to see each of you back at next year’s annual Winter Meeting and at our Summer Meeting on Aug 7-8 in Zanesville.
