O & G coalitions meet at Petroleum Club


Thursday afternoon, two coalition groups brought together hundreds of oil and gas employees. It was a state of the industry address.

According to Marc Ehrhardt, executive director of Grow Louisiana, the industry provides more than two and a half billion dollars for Pelican State coffers and hundreds of thousands of jobs.

But, that's not something he says that should be taken for granted.

"We want to make sure that the state knows people of the state know how important the oil and gas industry is to the state's economy but more importantly how important it is to the livelihoods of the 310,000 people working in it." said Ehrhardt.

Ehrhardt says the coalition groups do not lobby, only encourage those in the oil and gas industry to appeal to their public officials.
