Chair's Stewardship Awards

Open for Project Nominations

Since its inception nearly 80 years ago, the IOGCC has voiced the need for sound oil and natural gas environmental policy. Many organizations have gone far beyond the basic mandates of law and regulation to protect and enhance our nation's natural resources. The Chair's Stewardship Awards represent the IOGCC's highest honor for exemplary efforts by the oil and natural gas industry in environmental stewardship.

The award-winning projects represent a few of the many positive programs initiated by domestic oil and natural gas organizations and industry. The intention of the awards is to recognize achievement and challenge organizations, companies and individuals nationwide to demonstrate innovation, dedication and passion for our environment. Stewardship within the industry is one of the great untold success stories and the projects represent only a sample of those in operation throughout the world.  

2024 Chair's Stewardship Awards

The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) is now accepting nominations for the 2024 Chair's Stewardship Awards.  The 2024 winners will be honored at the IOGCC Annual Conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado, October 28-30, 2024. 

You may apply on your behalf or nominate another project. Past winners are encouraged to apply with new projects. If you have applied in the past and you feel your project has been enhanced, we encourage you to resubmit your project. Nominations are due by COB, on Friday, August 30, 2024.

In the nomination form you will find the four different categories.  Choose one that best fits your project and provide a brief project summary.  Please limit your summary to three pages or less.

Representing 38 states, the IOGCC champions the conservation and efficient recovery and storage of domestic oil and gas resources while protecting human health and safety and the environment.
