Petroleum Alliance Expresses Disappointment in U.S. Supreme Court Ruling
Industry association says state must maintain primacy in oil and natural gas regulation
OKLAHOMA CITY – Petroleum Alliance of Oklahoma President Brook A. Simmons released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in McGirt v. Oklahoma.
“The Petroleum Alliance of Oklahoma is disappointed in today’s majority opinion in McGirt v. Oklahoma, but we are moving forward to work with the state of Oklahoma, the tribes and Oklahoma’s Congressional delegation to ensure that our members continue to have a stable, predictable regulatory and tax environment consistent with their interests,” Simmons said.
“It is critical for continued investment in Oklahoma that the state maintain primacy with regard to the regulation of oil and gas operations, and that issues of title with regard to real property remain unaffected.”
