Description

Energy Education Partnership, Inc. (EEPI) is a 501(c) (3) subsidiary of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC). The organization was formed four years ago for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes. EEPI adheres to the same mission of IOGCC, and that is to promote conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment. The membership of EEPI/IOCGG is composed of the governors of the 30 oil and gas producing states, seven associate member states, and five international affiliates. The governors appoint official representatives and committee members to participate in the programs. The membership of EEPI/IOGCC is dedicated to the conservation and prudent utilization of oil and natural gas resources through education and training. Engineers, geologist, environmental scientists and researchers who perform the majority of fossil energy research in the United States all work with EEPI/IOGCC on projects. The ''Oil and Gas Facility Emergency Awareness Program'' consists of three main parts, with two optional projects for the states involved in the pilot program. The three main parts of the program consist of the following: (1) Create a generic publication using the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program's publication, ''Responding to Oilfield Emergencies'', which is not state-specific. (2) Prepare a training program for emergency response teams, state and federal regulators, oil and gas facility owners and operators, and local citizens. The program will be developed as a PowerPoint presentation and will assist the students in becoming more aware of emergency situations at an oil or gas facility. The students learn who is the designated ''first responder'' in charge, how all people can work together in preventing and controlling problems at an oil or gas facility, and what to do during an emergency. Familiarity with equipment and hazardous substances are introduced as part of the program. (3) Once the publication and the training program are developed, a video that will be used as an introduction to the actual training class, as a refresher for the class, or in a ''train-the-trainer'' program will be produced. In addition to the above-noted three steps, optional projects were considered by the pilot program states. Two optional projects were considered by the states: (1) Working with the local, regional or state firefighters, a training facility would be created using oil and gas equipment. This part of the project will require cooperation between firefighters and industry, and will assist especially the emergency responders in learning more about oil and gas equipment. (2) Also under consideration was a related web site that would include the location of all oil and gas wells and accessible only by password. The overall ''Oil and Gas Facility Emergency Awareness Program'' has many benefits, some of which are: The process will provide opportunity for key industry leaders to develop relationships with local emergency management agencies. Industry personnel will be able to better understand emergency planning, and emergency personnel will better understand industry operations. Health, safety and environment will be better protected because of training. Better risk management will improve the operating climate for independent oil and gas producers. The ''Oil and Gas Facility Emergency Awareness Program'' benefits the emergency response teams, oil and gas facility owners and operators, state and federal regulators, the environment, and most especially the citizens. All groups must work together for the health, safety and protection of the community and the environment.
