Utah's oil and gas industry is a critical piece of the economic and social fabric of the State of Utah. From quality employment, economic development, tax revenues to federal, state and local governments, and royalty revenue to Utah citizens and its Permanent School Trust Fund, Utah's petroleum industry is integral to the quality of life we live in our beautiful State. Oil and gas and their related products touch every aspect of our modern lives. We fuel your vehicles, heat your homes and provide the petrochemical building blocks that go into your clothes, cell phone, computer, recreational equipment and thousands of other every day items we all use and depend upon. We do this while respecting and protecting Utah's environment and beautiful landscapes through continued investment in people and technologies that allow us to work cleaner and to tread more lightly on the land.
