About Us

The Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program (OOGEEP) is a non-profit statewide education and public outreach program. Created in 1998, OOGEEP provides a variety of programs throughout the State of Ohio. These programs primarily focus on teacher workshops, scholarships, student education, firefighter training, industry training, workforce development, research, landowner and guest speaker programs.

OOGEEP has gained respect from a variety of target markets by earning a reputation as a credible state and nationally recognized program. Providing factual information about the crude oil and natural gas industry, many programs have related curriculum and materials that meet state and national standards. OOGEEP is funded by Ohio’s crude oil and natural gas industry through an assessment on the production of all crude oil and natural gas produced in Ohio.  OOGEEP is not a state agency and does not utilize any taxpayer dollars.
