COGA with CH2M launches "What Turns You On?"
Colorado Oi & Gas Association and CH2M unveil new podcast series
The Colorado Oil & Gas Association (COGA), in partnership with CH2M, is pleased to announce the launch of its new podcast series; “What Turns You On?“ – now available on iTunes and streaming at www.coga.org.
“We are thrilled to launch this new and creative podcast series. ‘What Turns You On?’ will provide diverse and interesting perspectives on how the industry is contributing to keeping Colorado and the United States vibrant and innovative,” said Tisha Schuller, COGA’s President & CEO. The “What Turns You On?” COGA Energy podcast is being produced and presented by CH2M and will share fun, fact-based, and reliable information on hot topics from the oil and gas industry and beyond. “CH2M is a great Colorado partner with a global reach for this exciting new project,” Schuller added. “Partnering with COGA on this exciting new podcast is a natural extension of CH2M’s work helping oil and gas companies throughout the Rocky Mountain Region, and the world, address energy challenges by transforming them into exciting new opportunities,” said Stephen Ludwig, Vice President Marketing, Communications, & Strategy at CH2M.
The “What Turns You On?” COGA Energy podcast series will introduce listeners to the men and women of the oil and gas industry and inform them of how oil and gas is changing the economic and national security future of the world. It will also explore how COGA is engaging with its neighbors and communities, why regulations and politics matter, and how the industry’s innovation represents a new frontier.
The first “What Turns You On?” podcast features Schuller discussing why the oil and gas industry is so critical to Colorado. “As an environmental scientist, mother, and industry advocate, I have a unique perspective to offer on energy development in Colorado,” Schuller said of today’s first released podcast.
The next podcast in the “What Turns You On?” series will examine how COGA and the industry’s success of local community engagement with friends and neighbors have changed the debate from fear to facts on oil and gas development.
“COGA and CH2M are committed to moving the energy industry forward, and ‘What Turns You On?’ is a perfect vehicle to better inform industry players and the public of important topics impacting Colorado and the global energy space,” added Ludwig.
The launch of the podcast is just another example of COGA increasing its online and social media presence. COGA will soon be unveiling a new website design (www.coga.org) to better present in very clear and easily manageable ways the many facets and issues of the oil and gas industry in Colorado. Plus, COGA’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ColoradoOilandGas) and Twitter account (@ColoradoOilGas) reach new audiences daily.
“The addition of the podcast will allow COGA to communicate with all our stakeholders in a new, unfiltered way,” Schuller continued. “The oil and gas industry has a great story to tell and this podcast is a creative way to engage, educate, and tell our story.”
