OIPA comments on passing of Aubrey McClendon

March 02, 2016
TOPICS: OIPA
Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association President Mike Terry released the following statement regarding the passing of American Energy Partners founder and chief executive officer Aubrey McClendon:

Aubrey McClendon was a groundbreaking pioneer and true champion of Oklahoma’s oil and natural gas industry. He was an extraordinary individual and businessman, admired and treasured by his peers, colleagues and employees.

His steadfast dedication to this industry, Oklahoma and his hometown of Oklahoma City helped usher in a new era of oil and natural gas exploration in the Sooner State and across the nation. By focusing on unconventional resource reservoirs and the use of horizontal drilling, Aubrey helped put in motion our nation’s push toward energy independence, and his use of these unconventional techniques in the development of natural gas was copied by oil and natural gas producers across the nation.

Oklahoma’s oil and natural gas industry has lost a true visionary whose accomplishments will long go unmatched. His passing is a great loss to the industry, state and city he vigorously and loyally supported.

Founded in 1955, the OIPA is the state’s largest oil and gas advocacy group, representing more than 2,700 members in the crude oil and natural gas exploration/production industry or affiliated businesses.
