The Independent Oil and Gas Association of West Virginia will host its first ever "IOGAWV Day" on February 16, 2011 at the West Virginia Legislature. This event will be held at the West Virginia Capitol Rotunda and "will be a coordinated effort to put a face on our industry to our 134 elected House of Delegate and Senatorial representatives."
"Our industry is currently facing an assault on our right to drill and produce natural gas and oil of a magnitude never before seen in our history. From nearly every direction, our ability to work, provide a living for our families and to produce two valuable energy sources for America is being challenged. If we are to be successful in our endeavors to thwart this onslaught of mistruths and misinformation, it is imperative we act quickly and decisively to let our elected officials know the economic impact of our industry in West Virginia," the association said.
