The West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association, chartered in 1915, serves the entire oil and natural gas industry, to include organizations involved in construction, environmental services, drilling, completion, gathering, transporting, distribution and processing.
Members have cumulative investment of nearly ten billion dollars in West Virginia, account for 80% of the state’s oil and natural gas production, operate more than 20,000 miles of pipeline across the state and provide product to more than 300,000 West Virginia homes and businesses.
PUBLIC PERCEPTION & EDUCATION
West Virginians believe growing the state’s natural gas industry is important to creating more jobs and providing more tax revenue for important services. A recent public opinion poll showcases the support that exists for this industry among West Virginians.
WVONGA’s public education initiative – Energize West Virginia - was developed to educate West Virginians on the benefits the industry provides our state AND to provide a voice to those that support the industry.
Inside Shale, a weekly one-hour radio show broadcast throughout the state, highlights industry activities and issues in an informative and educational manner. The program is facilitated by WVONGA. For more information, or to listen to the program, click here.
Natural gas continues to give West Virginians a lot to be proud of, and we want to hear — and tell — your stories. We need your involvement to help inform policy decisions by local, state and federal lawmakers.
