The Governor has announced Shelter in Place protocols. While it is critical that we do our part to flatten the curve, activities that are necessary for the production of oil or natural gas are considered essential services.


We are going to have to use our best judgement to determine what is essential. If you can work from home, please do. Here is the link to CISA guidelines for identifying critical infrastructure workers during the COVID-19 response.


Additionally, we continue to work closely with our federal delegation to fight for the health and future of our industry during the oil price crisis. Here is the letter they have penned to Vice President Pence, US Trade Ambassador Lighthizer and to the Secretaries of the US Department of Commerce, the US Department of the Interior, the US Department of Energy.
