OILFIELD PATRIOT AWARD

In 2006, the Ohio Oil & Gas Association created the Oilfield Patriot Award to recognize one person in our industry who, by their service, has made significant contributions to the OOGA mission.

A person who does this is certainly a patriot for their industry—while many would say that they are also a patriot for the ideals of their country.

A patriot is:

  • committed to accomplishing goals that impact a group larger than themselves.
  • someone who will go the extra mile to defend our freedoms by being actively engaged in the process.
  • dedicated to doing the greatest good for the greatest number of people and is not afraid to blaze new trails and engage others to see their vision.
