Member Dues:

Producer members: First-time annual dues are calculated on prior year production of oil and gas as reported to CalGEM at $0.18 per barrel of crude oil and $0.024 per mcf natural gas.  To estimate your dues, multiply your barrels/mcf produced annually 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 .18 = $7,200 dues and 85,000 mcf x $.024 = $2,040 dues ==> $9,240 total dues)  Minimum Dues = $2,175.  Dues that calculate to more than $200,000 per year may qualify for 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.
