The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission announced its 2007 Chairman’s Stewardship Awards to honor the outstanding environmental stewards of the oil and natural gas industry and is seeking nominations for this year’s competition.

Protecting the environment is a major concern of the world today. Since 1935 the IOGCC has focused on the need for sound oil and natural gas environmental policy. The Chairman’s Stewardship Awards honors the achievements and efforts of the oil and natural gas industry that help serve as examples for others in the industry, government and public.

Nominations will be accepted in four different categories: Major Company, Independent Company, Energy Education and Environmental Partnership.

The winners will be presented their award at IOGCC’s Annual Meeting by IOGCC Chairman Gov. John Hoeven of North Dakota in New Orleans, La., in September.

For more information, log on to http://www.iogcc.state.ok.us/or contact Tiffany Batdorf at 405.525.3556, ext. 114. Nominations must be completed and received by August 1.

The IOGCC is a multi-state government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety, and the environment. Established by the charter member states’ governors in 1935, it is the oldest, largest and most effective interstate compact in the nation.
