The American Oil & Gas Historical Society has been established to preserve the history of the oil and natural gas exploration and production by providing advocacy and service for community museums and other organizations that work to preserve that history through exhibition, educational programming, and material preservation.
Primary stakeholders in the American Oil & Gas Historical Society (AOGHS) are museums and historical societies and associations, and the secondary stakeholders are oil and gas corporations, trade associations, and individuals committed to oil and gas heritage preservation.
AOGHS accomplishes its mission and vision by providing:
Advocacy for museums and historical societies that educate the public about the U.S. oil and natural gas industry through public awareness;
Public education about oil and natural gas exploration and production heritage through periodic publications; and
A network of information contacts through which museums, historical and trade associations, corporations, and individuals can acquire information about efforts to preserve oil and natural gas heritage.
AOGHS was established in June 2003 as a program of the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) Educational Foundation in acknowldgement of the many U.S. museums and historical societies with an interest in preserving the heritage of the oil and gas exploration and production industry. The AOGHS will provide service and advocacy for these primary stakeholders through publications, special presentations, and a website highlighting the efforts and accomplishments of these groups.
Through regular publications and public outreach, the AOGHS will provide a network that links museums and historical associations with organizations, individuals, and potential donors that have an interest in supporting these preservation efforts.
