Who We Are

Western Energy Alliance: The Voice of the Industry in the West

Western Energy Alliance focuses on federal legislative, regulatory, environmental, public lands and other policy issues. We represent the voice of the Western oil and natural gas industry in a variety of ways.

We’re the experts on federal public lands access issues for the exploration and production (E&P) industry. From tracking long-term trends on public lands with our Red Tape Nation series, to testimony before Congress, we’re recognized as the industry leader on federal onshore issues.

As our name indicates, we’ve built an alliance of stakeholders across the region in state and local government; academia; ranching; other industries; think tanks; and sportsmen’s, civic, business, issue advocacy and other groups. These allies share an interest in a vibrant Western economy with robust job creation. Western Energy Alliance works with these allies to amplify the message of a strong oil and natural gas industry.

Western Energy Alliance is the go-to source for Congress on western oil and natural gas issues. The West has significant oil and natural gas potential, but overregulation at the federal level threatens to prevent the achievement of that full potential. Western Energy Alliance is engaged in any federal regulation that affects the western E&P sector.
