About Us

The Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program (OOGEEP) is a non-profit statewide education and public outreach program.

The primary goal of these programs is to educate Ohio’s general public by focusing on industry research, teacher workshops, scholarships, science fair, firefighter training, career and workforce development, landowner and guest speaker programs.

By providing factual information about the natural gas and oil industry, OOGEEP has gained respect from a variety of target markets and earned a reputation as a credible state and nationally recognized program. OOGEEP is funded by Ohio’s natural gas and oil industry through an assessment on Ohio’s production. OOGEEP is not a state agency, does not utilize any taxpayer dollars, and does not own, drill, operate, or have a working interest in any natural gas and oil wells.
