2022 Annual Conference

The IOGCC Annual Conference will be held on the harbor in Baltmore, Maryland on October 16-18, 2022. The annual conferences have proven to be invaluable opportunities for the exchange of information and ideas. 

This meeting will bring together a wide range of participants, including governors, state and federal regulatory officials, oil and gas industry representatives, and non-governmental organizations, to advance IOGCC’s mission the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission is a multi-state government agency that champions the conservation and efficient recovery and stortage of domestic oil and gas resources while protecting  human health and safety and the environment. A lineup of distinguished speakers will provide timely and relevant information on subjects important to our membership.

We look forward to seeing everyone and working together to have a successful event in October!
