WASHINGTON, December 10, 2018 – API today announced Kevin Servick is joining API as Central Region Campaign Manager as the natural gas and oil industry continues to enhance industry resources to seize America’s energy moment and continue to deliver reliable affordable fuels to help consumers power their daily lives.

“The natural gas and oil industry supports more than 10 million jobs and contributes over one trillion dollars to the U.S. economy and Mr. Servick will be an important part of coordinating  the association’s efforts to develop, mobilize and sustain engaged individuals, groups, and coalitions to advance priority advocacy issues throughout the Midwest,” said Judith Thorman, API central region director. 

Servick is a political professional experienced in grassroots development and various aspects of political campaigning. Servick most recently served as Campaign Manager and Senior Advisor for Auditor of State Dave Yost, managing day-to-day operations of the Dave Yost for Attorney General Campaign and is a 2004 graduate of The Ohio State University.

“Consumers are enjoying reliable, affordable American made energy and, with the right policies, we could see more of that production happening in our heartland,” said Servick. “The natural gas and oil industry is an important part of the well-being and economic future for each state. I look forward to being a part of the conversation in advancing smart regulatory policies that bolster America’s energy resurgence and help consumers  realize the economic benefits this industry can bring.”

“We are pleased that he will be based in our office where industry supports more than 260,000 jobs,” said Chris Zeigler, API Ohio Executive Director. “Over the last decade, Ohio has been an important part of the American success story on energy development and environmental progress. Nationally, methane emissions from hydraulically-fractured natural gas well completions alone have fallen more than 85 percent since 1990.”

The increased use of natural gas, fueling the power sector in Ohio and across the country, has played the most significant role in achieving the 30-year lows in carbon dioxide emissions from power generation that we see today. America leads the world in natural gas production and in the timeframe that U.S. natural gas output has doubled, overall methane emissions from natural gas systems have fallen significantly, 16 percent since 1990.

API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the natural gas and oil industry, which supports 10.3 million U.S. jobs and nearly 8 percent of the U.S. economy. API’s more than 600 members include large integrated companies, as well as exploration and production, refining, marketing, pipeline, and marine businesses, and service and supply firms. They provide most of the nation’s energy and are backed by a growing grassroots movement of more than 47 million Americans.
