The Ohio Energy Resource Alliance
The Ohio Energy Resource Alliance (OERA) was formed to help provide answers to Ohioans who have questions about shale development, and how it will benefit Ohio and their communities.
The OERA is comprised of Energy In Depth – Ohio; the Ohio Petroleum Council, a division of the American Petroleum Institute (API); the Ohio Oil & Gas Association; the Ohio Oil & Gas Energy Education Program; the Buckeye Energy Forum; and America’s Natural Gas Alliance.
These groups share a common cause: making sure Ohio’s citizens, as well as community, elected and business leaders get the answers they need about the opportunities – both future and present – coming to our home through oil and natural gas development.
These organizations are reaching out to community leaders and residents in the counties directly being impacted by shale development. The shared priority is to provide answers about all aspects of shale development, including current regulations governing the oil and gas industry at the state and federal levels, industry standards to protect the environment, and Ohio’s safe development practices.
Our collective objective is to continue to educate Ohioans on the practices and processes used in oil and natural gas extraction, and its potential to power Ohio’s economy, job growth and energy security.
Working with communities across the state to further a fact based conversation regarding Ohio’s energy future, we can continue to move forward together, and ensure success in the development of our homegrown energy resources.
