|Founded in 1955, the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association was created to give the state’s independent oil and natural gas producers a unified voice.|
Today, the OIPA is made up of more than 2,500 members in the crude oil and natural gas exploration/production industry and affiliated businesses. It is the state’s largest oil and gas advocacy group, and one of the largest statewide petroleum groups in the nation.
The OIPA is committed to promoting the interests and welfare of independent oil and gas operators, working interest owners, royalty owners, and those businesses who provide services for the energy industry. Specifically, the association strives to provide its members with outstanding legislative and regulatory representation.
Focusing on legislation, regulation and industry affairs, the work of the association is concentrated in these areas in order to be responsive to the ever-growing demands made on the industry by federal, state, and local governments and by the general public. Led by a staff of skilled professionals and supported by an active board of directors, the OIPA ensures the voice of every energy producer is heard.
