Utah's oil and gas industry is a tremendous asset to the State of Utah. The men and women who find, produce, transport, refine and market the petroleum products you use every day are proud to work in an industry that provides critical resources for Utah families. We hope you'll use our website as a resource to learn more about the importance and value of petroleum products and to answer any questions you may have about our industry. Utah is blessed with abundant natural resources amidst some of the most beautiful and scenic landscapes to be found anywhere in the world. We pride ourselves in our efforts and successes to tread lightly on the ground, reduce and control emissions to the air, and protect our water and other resources for today and tomorrow.
The Utah Petroleum Association (UPA) exists to serve our member companies and advance the responsible development of Utah's natural resources and manufacture of fuels that drive Utah's economy.
Courtesy of Utah's Office of Energy Development, their latest installment, "Energy Success Stories: Energy Production from Field to Pump," explores the life cycle of one of Utah's most precious resources - oil.
From discovering where to drill, to extracting and shipping crude, to refining the commodity through clean fuel technology, this segment tracks the process from start to finish, featuring the University of Utah's renowned Energy & Geoscience Institute, Integrated Energy Companies, D&A McRae Transportation and Tesoro.

UPA congratulates Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for receiving a 2017 Utah Earth Day Award. The Utah Board of Oil, Gas and Mining awarded this special recognition for Anadarko's reclamation and seeding project in their Greater Natural Buttes field in Uintah County.
Each year, the Board presents Earth Day Awards to companies, organizations or individuals who go above and beyond what is required by regulation to protect the environment, while developing Utah's natural resources.
Awards are presented in the areas of oil and gas, minerals mining and coal mining. Specific award categories are environmental improvement to an active mine site, exploration site, or producing field; outstanding results following applications of innovative environmental technology; and outstanding final reclamation or site restoration.
Congratulations to Anadarko and all those other UPA Members who work so hard and invest so much time and capital into maintaining and improving Utah's environment while producing energy resources that are critical to citizens of our great State.
