Producer members: First-time annual dues are calculated on prior year production of oil and gas (as reported to California Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources) at $0.114 per barrel of crude oil and $0.0151 per mcf natural gas. To estimate your dues, multiply your barrels/mcf produced yearly by the charge per barrel and/or mcf. (Example: 40,000 bbl x .114 = $4,560 dues and 85,000 mcf x $.0151 = $1,283.50 dues ==> $5,843.50 total dues) Minimum Dues = $1,375. Dues that calculate to more than $102,500 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 for all new members.
Note that memberships are company-based; when a company joins, all employees within that company are considered members.
