Two Oklahoma City-based energy corporations are among the winners of 2008 excellence awards issued by Oil and Gas Investor magazine.

Chesapeake Energy Corp. won the Best Corporate Citizen award, while Devon Energy Corp. won the Best Investor Relations Program award.

Chesapeake "has been in the forefront of promoting increased use of clean-burning, abundant and domestic natural gas,” the magazine said in a news release. "In 2008, as the energy policy debate heated up, Chesapeake, the nation’s No. 2 gas producer and most active driller, launched both a television ad campaign and the American Clean Skies Foundation, a Washington-based think-tank to promoted greater use of natural gas.”

The magazine said Devon "has successfully communicated its solid business model and long-term growth prospects to the world at large.”

"Through investor conferences, roadshows, oil-field tours, personal visits and community education and outreach, Devon’s IR team tells the company’s story with creativity and enthusiasm,” the magazine said.
