The Kansas Independent Oil & Gas Association (KIOGA) exists to promote the development of oil and natural gas resources in Kansas through bipartisan, common-sense solutions to challenges facing the oil and natural gas industry.
Founded in 1937, KIOGA is a nonprofit member organization representing oil and natural gas producers in Kansas, as well as allied service and supply companies. Our cooperative partnerships with other state and national trade groups means the concerns of the Kansas oil and gas industry are heard in Topeka and Washington. KIOGA is driven and led by a robust membership of nearly 3,000 members. We are the primary voice for the Kansas oil and gas industry.
Through rigorous engagement at the state and federal levels, KIOGA works to create a more stable and predictable political and regulatory environment for our members. KIOGA works with other trade groups to educate all stakeholders on the material attributes that point to greater sustainability and long-term viability of companies in the energy industry. We are committed to being a positive, credible, and proactive voice for the Kansas oil and gas industry, promoting respectful dialogue and education to advance oil and gas interests at the state and federal levels. KIOGA is the lead state and national advocate for the Kansas oil and gas industry.
Independent oil and natural gas producers are nonintegrated companies which receive nearly all their revenue from production at the wellhead. Independents are in the oil and natural gas exploration and production business and are not major integrated companies who also refine and market petroleum end-products. Independents account for 93% of the oil and 63% of the natural gas produced in Kansas. Nationally, independents drill 90% of domestic oil and natural gas wells and produce over 80% of America’s oil and natural gas.
With over 4,200 members, KIOGA is the lead state and national advocate for Kansas independent oil and natural gas producers. We are committed to ensuring that tomorrow’s energy policy will be one in which our members grow and prosper. Our active presence before the Kansas Legislature, U.S. Congress, state and federal regulatory agencies, and other governmental decision-makers means the concerns of Kansas independent oil and natural gas producers are heard in Topeka and Washington.
