COGA Selects New President

December 2009 Vol. 236 No. 12

The Colorado Oil & Gas Association (COGA) announced Dec. 10 that their board of directors has selected Tisha Conoly Schuller as its new president.

Schuller comes to COGA from Tetra Tech, a national environmental consulting and engineering firm, where she served as a vice president for regional operations.

“COGA is very excited about Tisha’s leadership skills, business background, and positive approach to representing our industry,” commented Don McClure, COGA Chairman of the Board.

In addition to running business operations, Schuller has spent the last 15 years conducting environmental permitting for oil and natural gas projects across the country. She has a B.S. in Earth Systems with an emphasis in Geology from Stanford University.

“This is a very important time for the natural gas industry in Colorado,” said Schuller. “An economic recession, climate change legislation, and the increase in renewables development all emphasize the importance of the natural gas industry. I’m interested in bringing oil and natural gas to the table to discuss how we can increase our contribution to economic and energy solutions in Colorado.”
