Matt Hammond, the new leader of the Ohio Oil and Gas Association knows the organization is heading in the right direction. He just wants to make sure members and others in the industry know that, also.Click here to read more.
In a visit to Cambridge recently, Hammond used the term “demand opportunities” several times. That’s because, despite his recent time in his role as the group’s executive vice president, he’s not a newcomer to the industry and knows that’s the next step for the region.
“We need a message more about the oil and gas product,” Hammond said. “We all have to understand how the ripple effect is playing out in Ohio. In Dayton, Cincinnati, they don’t make the connection about how the cost of living has dropped because of the gas and oil industry. Even in those areas, there are construction jobs being created and other industry jobs being created.”
“This increase in natural gas creates jobs, whether it’s construction in the initial phase or later in the development phase,” Hammond said.
Hammond also touched on regulations, saying the industry needs “strong, reasonable, regulations.”
