Producer members: First-time annual dues are calculated on prior year production of oil and gas as reported to CalGEM at $0.1625 per barrel of crude oil and $0.02708 per mcf natural gas. To estimate your dues, multiply your barrels/mcf produced yearly by the charge per barrel and/or mcf. New producers should use their average daily production to estimate annual production. (Example: 40,000 bbl x .1625 = $6,500 dues and 85,000 mcf x $.02708 = $2,301.80 dues ==> $8,801.80 total dues) Minimum Dues = $2,112. Dues that calculate to more than $145,000 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 = $485 16-50 employees = $700 More than 50 employees = $915
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 for all new members.
Note that memberships are company-based; when a company joins, all employees within that company are considered members.
