Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA)
The Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) has represented independent oil and natural gas producers for 90 years.
Today, IPAA represents the thousands of independent oil and natural gas producers and service companies across the U.S. America’s independent producers develop 91% of the nation’s oil and natural gas wells. These companies account for 83% of America’s oil production, 90% of its natural gas and NGL production, and support over 4.5 million American jobs. A recent analysis has shown that independent producers are investing 150% of their U.S. cash flow back into American oil and natural gas development to enhance their already aggressive efforts to find and produce more energy.
IPAA is a national trade association headquartered in Washington, D.C. It serves as an informed voice for the exploration and production segment of the industry, and advocates its members’ views before the U.S. Congress, The White House, and federal agencies. IPAA provides economic and statistical information about the U.S. exploration and production industry. IPAA also develops investment symposia and other networking and business development opportunities for its members.
