AUSTIN – Dan Patrick, Texas State Senator and Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor, today received the endorsement of the Texas Oil and Gas Association’s Political Action Committee.
“Dan Patrick understands that Texas oil and natural gas producers power our state forward,” said Rob Looney of Texas Oil and Gas PAC. “Under Senator Patrick’s leadership, we’re confident the oil and natural gas industry will continue to strengthen Texas by creating jobs, anchoring our economy and bolstering our nation’s energy security.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Texas Oil and Gas Association PAC,” said Patrick. “A true representation of our state’s economic strength, our oil and gas industry is crucial to our success. As Lieutenant Governor, I will continue to champion the oil and gas industry’s efforts so that our economic prosperity continues to flow throughout Texas.”
Texas Oil & Gas Association (TXOGA) is a statewide trade association with approximately 5,000 members representing every facet of the Texas oil and gas industry including small independents and major producers. Collectively, TXOGA members account for over 90 percent of all oil and natural gas produced in Texas, they operate a vast majority of the State’s pipeline mileage and gas processing capacity, and they are responsible for a preponderance of the State’s refining capacity.
