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 3.9 cents per barrel of crude oil and .52 cent per mcf natural gas. Minimum Dues = $425; Maximum Dues = $25,000*. (Multiply your barrels/mcf produced yearly by the charge per barrel or mcf. e.g.: 40,000 bbl x .039 = $1,560.00 dues or 80,000 mcf x $.0052 = $416.00 dues) *Dues that calculate to more than $25,000 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 number of employees within the company:
1-15 employees = $300 16-50 employees = $425 50 or more employees = $550
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.
