About Us

The Petroleum Alliance is the newly formed oil and natural gas trade association created by the merger of the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association and the Oklahoma Oil & Gas Association. We are the only trade association in Oklahoma that represents every segment of the oil and natural gas industry, allowing the industry to speak with one voice when advocating for the interests of our members, landowner partners, host communities, and employees.

Our mission is to build a better Oklahoma and to be a destination for capital investment from the upstream, midstream and downstream segments of the energy industry
