TXOGA Statement on Governor Abbott’s Latest Executive Order (EO-29)

July 3, 2020

The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association:

“Governor Abbott is striking the right balance in establishing policy that will keep our economy moving while slowing the spread of COVID-19. Hospitalization rates are increasing substantially, so it is absolutely imperative we heighten the measures to protect our citizens and promote growth of jobs simultaneously. As an industry that fuels our economy and protects our environment all while focusing on a culture of safety, we know firsthand that safety protocols are the foundation for productivity and success.”


Founded in 1919, TXOGA is the oldest and largest trade association in the State representing every facet of the Texas oil and natural gas industry.
