South Dakota Oil & Gas Association’s Goals:

  • Provide value to the membership through networking, outreach, education, tradeshows, and conferences
  • Promote the drilling and exploration of oil and gas in South Dakota by coordinating and working with all interested parties; including industry officials, governmental officials, mineral owners, and landowners
  • Promote the members and industry on legislative and regulatory issues
  • Deliver positive results on issues of importance to the membership
  • Build a solid membership base and encourage membership involvement in association activities

There are several categories of membership in SDOGA.  The Basic membership is geared for an individual or student.  The Associate membership is based on allowing educational universities, and non-profit trade associations to participate. The Sustaining membership for non-producing companies is based on a flat amount reflective of company size.  Corporate membership is reflective of a flat amount for producers, transportation, processing, and refinery companies.

As a member, in addition to personal contacts, letters, and telephone calls, you will be updated through a variety of bulletins, digests, and advisory material dealing with specific concerns and developments relevant to the Industry.  In addition, Association members are kept advised through an electronic newsletter, SDOGA E-News, and you will have access to the members only section of this website.

You will have access to member benefit programs, including the extremely successful Rocky Mountain Oil & Gas Awards Industry Summit.  You will also be entitled to member rates to attend Association meetings and seminars, including the Black Hills Bakken & Investor Conference.  Corporate, Non-Producer, and Associate members can participate on Committees, serving as the principal forum for public discussion on issues affecting the industry by leaders of government and business.  In addition, SDOGA’s yearly agenda includes technical and issue driven meetings, networking socials and Association committee meetings.
