Our O&GA Galveston Adventure was a BIG Success!!

IT WAS A GREAT DAY!!  Oil & Gas Admins International went on a tour of Galveston, TX, Friday, February 23rd and thanks to Hotel Galvez, Tremont House, Wyndham Houston West Energy Corridor, Galveston Island Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Ocean Star Museum, and Cosmo Cool Concepts, it was an adventure we will never forget!  

The day started at Wyndham Houston Energy Corridor with breakfast of delicious bacon wrapped donut holes, and an assortment of teas and coffee.  Attendees loaded the beautiful AAmbassador luxury bus where fun and games were orchestrated by Cosmo Cool Concepts’ own Julian Wathen.  

Our adventure began with a tour of the city given by guides from Galveston’s Convention and Visitor’s Bureau where we learned about Galveston’s rich history.  The first stop was the beautiful and historical Hotel Galvez where we enjoyed a delicious lunch, followed by a tour of the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum where attendees gained a wealth of knowledge about the oil and gas offshore drilling industry.  Our Galveston adventure continued with a tour of the beautiful and historical The Tremont House hotel where we enjoyed a spectacular roof-top celebration.

Our adventure ended at the Wyndham Houston West Energy Corridor with a wonderful happy hour complete with a tour of the the hotel, and a spread of tasty appetizers and yummy mixed beverages.

Oil & Gas Admins International Partners with HMNS Wiess Energy Hall for OGAP Certification

O&GA International has partnered with the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Wiess Energy Hall for the Oil & Gas Administrative Professionals (OGAP) Certification!  

The OGAP Certification’s robust criterion is designed to give the administrative professional an overview of the industry from the “reservoir to the pump” and to measure and validate the professional’s understanding and knowledge of the oil & gas industry.  It adds to the professional’s technical knowledge, and provides a venue that defines the professional’s value and improved marketability within the oil and gas industry. The program is endorsed by oil industry experts and leaders from a cross-section of global oil and gas companies and organizations.

Upon completion of the certification, professionals will have an opportunity to participate in a guided tour of Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science for a “visual” experience of the OGAP Certification content.  The tours will take place the fourth Thursday of each month.
