The Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA) held its annual Eastern Oil & Gas Conference and Trade Show on Aug. 28 and 29 at the Monroeville Convention Center in Monroeville, Pa. Dating back to the 1980s and billed as the region’s largest and longest-running oil and gas trade show, the two-day event featured PIOGA’s annual members’ meeting, a full conference schedule covering a range of topics including regulatory and safety issues and water treatment as well as more than 400 indoor and outdoor exhibitor displays.
The event is designed as an informative forum for both large and small oil and gas producers involved with exploration and development of oil and gas resources primarily in the Marcellus and Utica shale regions.
With roots dating back to 1918 with the Pennsylvania Oil, Gas and Minerals Association, PIOGA is a non-profit trade association representing more than 950 members involved with production, drilling, services, equipment manufacturing and distribution, royalty owners and other individuals in Pennsylvania’s oil and gas industry. The association promotes and implements regulatory and policy development, work force and safety training and continued education in cooperation and coordination with other associations, companies, government and regulatory agencies within all segments of the industry.
