Divot Diggers moves to October 4
Due to scheduling conflicts, we are moving the 19th Annual Divot Diggers Golf Outing to Tuesday, October 4. The outing, which is organized by PIOGA's Environmental Committee, had been scheduled for this Thursday, September 22. It takes place at Tam O'Shanter Golf Club in Hermitage.

A unique feature of the event is that everyone who participates also must sponsor at one of two levels. This enables us to offer lots of great prizes, along with 18 holes of golf, cart, lunch and a great steak fry afterward. Due to industry conditions, we have lowered costs to ensure that everyone who would like to participate is able to do so. Click here for a registration form and more information.


Weaver chosen as PIOGA president & executive director
The Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Independent Oil & Gas Association has announced the selection of Daniel J. Weaver to the position of president & executive director, effective September 1. Weaver (pictured here at left) replaces Louis D. D'Amico (right), who is retiring after 22 years in that position, and following a successful 44-year career in the oil and gas field.

Weaver, 37, has served as PIOGA's public outreach director since 2012 and previously held several leadership positions associated with the Drake Well Museum in Titusville for eight years.

"Dan Weaver has a genuine passion for Pennsylvania's oil and natural gas industry and the people who work to safely produce the energy we use every day," said Board Chairman Gary Slagel. "The board of directors is confident he will work hard to represent the interests of all of the members of the association and allow oil and natural gas production to continue to grow in the years ahead." <Continue reading>
