Welcome to PIOGA's online membership system!


Time running out to register for the Annual Meeting and Lou D'Amico retirement celebration
If you haven't already done so, please register now for our November 3 Annual Membership Meeting. There is no cost to attend this important association event.

The meeting, held at the DoubleTree in Cranberry Township, runs from 2 to 4 p.m. It will include updates on the association's legislative, regulatory, legal, outreach and education initiatives, along with an open forum to ask questions, air concerns and offer suggestions.

After the meeting, please stay to help us honor Lou D'Amico (pictured above), who is retiring after a long and successful career in the oil and gas industry and as the chief staff member of PIOGA. Lou's "Happy Trails" celebration, with plenty of eats and refreshments, is expected to go from 4-7 p.m.

Oil & Gas Awards nominees
A few weeks back, we let you know about the call for nominees for the 2017 Northeast Oil & Gas Awards. The event's organizers have let us know the slate of candidates is now available for this 5th annual event honoring our region's noteworthy companies, organizations and individuals. You can see the full list here as well learn more about the March 2017 gala where awards recipients will be honored.
EID on water contamination and radon
Energy In Depth is a great source for learning "the rest of the story" about oil and gas and other energy topics, both nationally and regionally. EID, a project of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, sets the record straight about research and claims made by those opposed to oil and gas development and helps spread good news about our industry.

We found two recent posts of particular interest when it comes to issues that have been raised time and again related to shale development in Pennsylvania:
