The Oil & Gas Trafficking Awareness Group (OGTAG) was started by an oil and gas companies to raise awareness about human trafficking and educate companies about the role they can play in ending it. The group began in 2017 with two energy professionals from two different companies and has grown to represent nearly 20 operators and 35+ service companies. No dues or annual fees are required to participate in OGTAG. Bi-monthly meetings are held in chapter cities to engage the energy industry. Currently, OGTAG has chapters in Houston and Denver.
Formed in Houston, Texas, a city well known for being the “epicenter for human trafficking in the U.S.,” OGTAG has added value to the #FightForUS movement / strategy for combating human trafficking and advancing human rights in the city.

“Houston is the energy capital of the world, and I applaud the energy industry’s efforts to raise awareness about human trafficking and work toward eradicating these crimes in our society,”
said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.
“The City of Houston has dedicated significant time and resources to anti-human trafficking efforts. We are fortunate that Houston also has exceptional corporate citizens taking the lead as OGTAG members work together to take a stand on this critical issue.”
