Our Mission Is Simple

We represent the rights of conventional vertical producers at the State Capitol and create a regulatory affairs presence at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. It is our intent to be nothing more than this, and nothing less.

Our Voice

As many of you know, for the past two legislative sessions HB2177 which would have allowed long laterals in all geologic formations, not just shale, did not become law, thanks to many of you, many of the OEPA leadership and our lobbyist, Greg Piatt.

OEPA will concentrate on protecting vertical produced rights including, but not limited to:

  1. Support of legislation similar to HB2177, which includes our 63% amendment language, or
  2. Support of new modern legislation that fully addresses the issues of horizontal drilling through vertical units held by producing well(s).

Supporting Equal Gross Production Tax

Dewey Bartlett, like his dad former Governor and Senator Dewey Bartlett Sr., has always put the best interest of Oklahoma above his own.
