OHIO NATURAL GAS / OIL PRODUCERS LAUNCH CAMPAIGN: Ohio’s natural gas and oil producers have launched a statewide, multi-platform campaign to educate Ohioans about the ways in which natural gas and oil provides for our quality of life.

Featuring two ads, the campaign makes clear that no matter where we live, work or play, Ohio-produced natural gas and oil is essential to life, according to Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program (OOGEEP), the industry’s education and public outreach program.

The campaign follows an OOGEEP voter opinion survey showing approval of Ohio’s natural gas and oil, with eight in 10 Ohio voters supporting the industry.
