Producer members: First-time annual dues are calculated on prior year production of oil and gas (as reported to CalGEM) at $0.1113 per barrel of crude oil and $0.01474 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 .1113 = $4,452 dues and 85,000 mcf x $.01474 = $1,252.90 dues ==> $5,705 total dues) Minimum Dues = $1,345. Dues that calculate to more than $100,300 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.
