Association Goals

In 1971, a small group of independent oil and gas operators joined together and formed the Tennessee Oil & Gas Association to represent the interests of independent oil and gas operators across the state. Then and now, TOGA has served as a strong voice in Tennessee for energy producers.

Our goals are: 

  • To provide a common voice to speak for the interests of the oil and gas industry in the State of Tennessee;

  • To protect, promote, foster and advance the common interests of those engaged in the oil and gas industry in the State of Tennessee and other states;

  • To protect the industry against unfair, unjust or burdensome taxation, rules and regulations;

  • To promote  the exploration, drilling, production, marketing, distribution and financing of oil and gas activities;

  • To collect and disseminate relevant geological and other data and information beneficial to the industry
