TXOGA Centennial

Texas is home to energy. Texas is home to the power that propels humankind. 2019 marks the 100th year of the Texas Oil & Gas Association, the state’s oldest and largest oil & gas trade association representing every facet of the Texas oil and gas industry. Collectively, TXOGA members account for over 90 percent of all oil and natural gas produced in Texas, they operate a vast majority of the State’s pipeline mileage and gas processing capacity, and they are responsible for a preponderance of the State’s refining capacity.

Texas is the nation’s number one producer of oil and natural gas in the number one producing nation around the globe. Every Texan benefits from a robust oil and natural gas sector, because more oil and gas means more jobs, more local and state revenue and more resources to fund our schools and universities and to build our roads. What’s happening in Texas has global implications as the United States has catapulted into the driver’s seat in the energy space.

Founded in Ingenuity. Fueled by Innovation. TXOGA’s Centennial Celebration will celebrate the oil and natural gas industry’s incredible milestones of progress, innovation and inventiveness, while also commending this industry’s rich heritage, rooted in the discovery and determination of the hardworking men and women who made it all possible.

Everything’s bigger in Texas. For the Texas oil and natural gas industry, our ability to go big – with no signs of backing down – is securing our economy, our environment and our future every single day. For 100 years, Texas worked its way to become the undisputed Energy Capitol of the World, and we’re just getting started.
