While members of the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association were still voting on a proposed merger with the Oklahoma Oil and Gas Association, the two groups issued a statement following election of Republican Kevin Stitt as Oklahoma’s new governor.
It came from Chad Warmington, President of OKOGA and Berry Mullennix, Chairman of OIPA.
“The outcome of today’s election makes clear that Oklahomans want their elected officials to focus on sustaining economic growth, diversifying our economy, and providing regulatory certainty that ensures job creators and manufacturers can thrive in Oklahoma, “said the two leaders.
“To achieve those goals, it is critical to have a trained and talented workforce and provide excellent educational programming for future generations of Oklahomans. OIPA and OKOGA, who collectively represent the entire oil and natural gas supply chain in Oklahoma, look forward to working with Governor-elect Stitt and members of the legislature to ensure our state’s energy industry and economy remain vibrant and competitive with neighboring states.”
