The Ohio Energy Resource Alliance is comprised of the American Petroleum Institute Ohio (API Ohio), a division of the American Petroleum Institute (API); the Ohio Oil & Gas Association (OOGA); the Ohio Oil & Gas Energy Education Program (OOGEEP); Energy In Depth – Ohio (EID-OHIO); America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA); the Ohio Chamber of Commerce; the Ohio Gas Association (OGA); and the Buckeye Energy Forum.
Each member is a separate group with its own focus. These groups have come together for the purpose of making sure Ohio’s citizens, as well as community, elected and business leaders, get the answers they need about the opportunities and challenges related to crude oil and natural gas development and its potential to power Ohio’s economy, job growth and energy security.
American Petroleum Institute Ohio (API Ohio) is an arm of the American Petroleum Institute, which represents more than 550 oil and natural gas companies, leaders of a technology-driven industry that supplies most of America’s energy, supports 9.8 million U.S. jobs and 8 percent of the U.S. economy, delivers more than $85 million a day in revenue to our government, and, since 2000, has invested more than $2 trillion in U.S. capital projects to advance all forms of energy, including alternatives. www.energyfromshale.org or www.api.org
