The 12th Annual Coalition Blowout was a great success for those who attended and our scholarship funds!  Thank you to all who participated, especially our sponsors and donors.  We are pleased to announce that this year's CBO will feature the music of J.R.Castillo & Unwound, which was a hit with everyone attending last year!  J.R. is a Texas songwriter and Nashville performer who hails from Beeville with family connections to the oil industry.    Their appearance was sponsored by SAFETEX USA, LLC. and Rig Wranglers, LLC.  Once again, dinner and dessert will be provided by SPN Well Services, N-Zone Guidance, LLC & Drilling Tools International.  Live and silent auctions and donation drawings generate a lot of excitement and monies that go to our scholarship funds.  The SAEC member societies are very grateful to everyone who purchases a ticket as well as our very generous sponsors & donors.  Please visit the sponsor & donor lists below and let them know that you appreciate their support by thanking them and, more importantly, using their services and products!









Over $400,000 in Scholarships


Originating in the late 1970’s, local societies that served members in the oil and gas industry would get together at the Coalition Blowout, to network and have a great time. Sometime in the 1980s, the event stopped being held.


The Coalition Blowout was resurrected in 2008 with a bigger and better purpose. The volunteers from the local societies now band together to throw a party to honor and celebrate the people that make the oil and gas industry great.
