HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Two major energy trade associations announced today the creation of an alliance to create a better understanding of the important issues related to the safe development of Pennsylvania's domestic energy resources.

"This collaboration builds on the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association's commitment to our members and Pennsylvanians to create an environment favorable to creating industry jobs for our neighbors," said PIOGA's Executive Director Lou D'Amico. "We are a solution-oriented organization, and working with the American Petroleum Institute will help our members educate a larger number of Pennsylvanians."

The partnership will serve as the educational arm of API and PIOGA regarding the Marcellus Shale Play in Pennsylvania.

Hanson and D'Amicosaid that specific details on the partnership will be announced in the coming weeks.
