What is the Alliance?

Based in the oil patch, the Alliance represents the interests of the oil and gas industry at both the state and federal levels of government. The Alliance’s commitment is to ensuring that tomorrow’s energy policy will be one in which our members can grow and prosper.

Created in 2000 through the merger of the North Texas Oil & Gas Association and the West Central Texas Oil & Gas Association, the Alliance has a combined membership of over 3,350 members. It is the largest state independent oil and gas association in the nation.

The Alliance brings together members in 300 cities and 29 states for the common purpose of protecting the oil and gas industry and developing programs – insurance, public education – that make them more profitable. The Alliance’s effectiveness relies upon speaking with one, unified voice.

Independents drilled 96% of wells in Texas, and produced 88% of the oil & gas in Texas.

Together we are strong…

individually, our voice becomes fragmented and weak.
