US Oil & Gas Association


The US Oil & Gas Association (originally the Mid-Continent Oil & Gas Association) was founded in October 1917 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, following the United States’ entry into World War I.

A principal purpose of the Association’s foundation was to provide essential supplies of petroleum and petroleum product to the allied forces, helping the Allies, “ float to victory upon a wave of oil.” The US Oil & Gas Association’s contribution to that success helped establish it as an Association in which individuals working cooperatively could resolve mutual problems and achieve great results.

For the past 100 years, in good times and bad, the Association has been a strong advocate for the individuals who built and sustain the U. S. petroleum industry. The Association’s long history is one of distinguished service to the petroleum industry and to our country’s economic and strategic stability. It is recognized today as “...a proven and respected advocate for producers of domestic oil and gas.”
