2022 Chair's Stewardship Awards

Open for Project Nominations

The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) is now accepting nominations for the 2022 Chair’s Stewardship Awards. These awards represent the IOGCC’s highest honor for exemplary efforts in environmental stewardship.

These awards recognize those companies and organizations that have gone beyond basic mandates and regulations to enhance our nation’s natural resources. The award-winning projects represent a few of the many positive programs initiated by the domestic oil and natural gas industry. The intention of the awards is to recognize achievement and challenge organizations, companies and individuals nationwide to demonstrate innovation, dedication and passion for our environment. The winners will be announced at the IOGCC Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland on October 16 - 18, 2022 and the attending governors will present the awards in the four categories: Energy Education, Environmental Partnership, Large Company, and Small Company.

Organizations or individuals may apply on their own behalf or nominate another project. Past winners are encouraged to apply with new projects. Previous projects that have received honorable mention may resubmit the project if it has been enhanced or revised.

Stewardship within the oil and natural gas industry is one of the great untold success stories and the projects represent only a sample of those in operation throughout the world. Representing 38 states, the IOGCC mission champions the conservation and efficient recovery and storage of domestic oil and gas resources while protecting human health and safety and the environment.

Nominations must be received on or before Friday September 16, 2022.
