OEPA is the ONLY state oil and gas association that specifically promotes and protects the rights of vertical oil and gas producers in Oklahoma. Having been in existence for only 5 short years, we have built a significant membership base, established firm relationships at the Oklahoma State Legislature and the Oklahoma Corporation Commission as well as have engaged positively with the general public, garnering overwhelming support for many of our initiatives.
Along with a full-time lobbyist representing us each day at the state capitol, our board of directors and members from across the state are continuously meeting with members of the legislature to press a small business oil and gas producer agenda.
Our regulatory affairs committee works daily with the Oklahoma Corporation providing significant feedback on issues that face our industry each and every day. The impact of these efforts has already been monumental.
We work with a litigation team in place to represent producers who have lost their vertical wells to horizontal frack jobs; on a contingency fee basis.
