Ag nominees sought

It’s time to honor Oklahoma’s top leader in agriculture once again.

As in past years, the Governor’s Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture will be presented on Agricultural Day at the Capitol — April 14 — and the winner will be inducted into Oklahoma’s Agriculture Hall of Fame.

Oklahoma’s Department of Agriculture Food and Forestry is accepting nominations of worthy individuals to honor through 5 p.m. on March 6. The award honors leaders in the agriculture industry who exemplify personal values, performance and achievement.

Nominees should have high standards of conduct, leadership, innovation, and accomplishments in agriculture and be worthy of serving as role models for young Oklahoma agriculturists.

Nomination forms, an award overview and biographies of past honorees can be found at Applications can be submitted electronically to or dropped off in person at the agency’s Oklahoma City headquarters at 2800 N Lincoln Blvd.

Enverus acquires tech company

Enverus, an on-demand software and data analytics company that follows the energy industry, announced Wednesday it had acquired RS Energy Group (RSEG), a technology company that focuses on the upstream oil and gas industry.

Jim Jarrell and Manuj Nikhanj, co-CEOs of RSEG, are joining Enverus to oversee its oil and gas analytics division. Officials said the acquisition combines the companies’ complementary strengths to accelerate technology, machine learning and advanced analytics across the energy market.

Together, Enverus and RSEG will transform the way energy companies and investors perform technical workflows, automate business processes and ultimately deliver shareholder value, officials said.

“This is about accelerating innovation through high-powered technology and is another active step for Enverus in breaking down silos by building workflows across engineering, geology, land, operations, and so much more,” Enverus CEO Jeff Hughes said.
