Producer members: annual dues are calculated on prior year production of oil and gas (as reported to California Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources) at $0.05616 per barrel of crude oil and $0.007488 per mcf natural gas. Minimum Dues = $615; Maximum Dues = $50,000*. (Multiply your barrels/mcf produced yearly by the charge per barrel or mcf. e.g.: 40,000 bbl x .05616 = $2,246 dues or 85,000 mcf x $.007488 = $636 dues) *Dues that calculate to more than $50,000 per year fall into a special tiered dues structure. Please call CIPA for complete details and dues calculations.
Associate members: (service and supply companies) annual dues are based on the total number of employees within whole the company:
1-15 employees = $425 16-50 employees = $615 More than 50 employees = $800
Royalty Owners: (individuals only; a company may not join under this category) annual dues are $150.
There is also a one-time initiation fee of $25.
Note that memberships are company-based; when a company joins, all employees within that company are considered members.
