Tapping the Source Rock

Source RockWelcome to the Source Rock Blog, your source for news, commentary and insights about policies, regulations and events impacting the oil and natural gas production across the West.

The purpose of this blog is to provide credible, accurate information to a wide and growing audience seeking to learn about unconventional energy development.  We’ll provide insight into the exploration and production (E&P) industry that’s driven by independent companies, the majority of which are small businesses with an average of 15 employees.

This is a channel for anyone interested in better understanding the complex issues affecting our industry, including the public, industry employees, policymakers, stakeholders and media.

We’ll explore and explain events touched on by the media or topics conspicuously ignored by other outlets. We’ll feature industry leaders and policy experts. Topics will span the environment, politics, regulatory policy, public lands, wildlife and other issues that affect the E&P industry.

The Source Rock title reflects the core of what makes oil and natural gas production possible, the geologic formations thousands of feet underground from which oil and natural gas are extracted. It also reflects our goal to be a source of information about our industry and policies impacting it that are left untapped by others.
