Hollye Hunt

Hunt named OIPA VP of legislative affairs

November 01, 2016
Hollye Hunt has been named the vice president of legislative affairs for the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association.

In the position, Hunt will lead the association’s legislative outreach efforts on behalf of Oklahoma’s independent oil and natural gas producers and the service companies that support them.

“It’s a tremendous honor to represent OIPA’s 2,500 members statewide,” Hunt said. “Oil and natural gas production is Oklahoma’s defining industry, and I am thankful for the opportunity to represent the people and the industry that serve as this state’s economic backbone.”

Hunt most recently served as the vice chancellor for governmental relations for the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, where she directed all legislative matters at the state and federal level. She is a former staff member of U.S. Rep. Tom Cole and then-Lt. Gov. Mary Fallin. Hunt is a graduate of the University of Texas and Oklahoma City University School of Law.

“The OIPA has a distinguished record of legislative accomplishment, and I am confident Hollye’s own proven history will help her be successful in carrying on our proud legacy,” said OIPA Chairman Jeff McDougall, president and principal owner of JMA Energy Company in Oklahoma City. “Her wealth of experience will help the OIPA better serve Oklahoma’s independent oil and natural gas industry.”

Founded in 1955, the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association was created to give the state’s independent oil and natural gas producers a unified voice. Today, the OIPA is made up of more than 2,500 members in the crude oil and natural gas exploration and production industry and affiliated businesses. It is the state’s largest oil and gas advocacy group and one of the largest statewide petroleum groups in the nation.
