Speaking Out for Michigan's Oil and Gas Industry


A letter from Michigan Oil and Gas Association board chair Jeff Cook was featured recently in the Detroit News.

Cook's letter was in response to a piece in the News regarding the drop in oil prices and their impacts on Michigan's oil and gas industry.

Here's an excerpt from Cook's response:

"Michigan today is 18th among production states in the nation, and we historically have ranked in the mid-teens. This means most of the “big oil” companies don’t invest heavily here. In fact, the businesses in Michigan — the 800-plus members of the Michigan Oil and Gas Association — are mostly small, local, family companies, where making energy has put dinner on our table for generations. We live here. We care about our communities."
