Independent Petroleum Association of America

Description

The Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) has represented independent oil and natural gas producers for three-quarters of a century. On June 10, 1929, President Herbert Hoover called a national and state conference to discuss and formulate a practical program for the conservation of America's natural petroleum resources. At that historic meeting at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, oil operators, royalty owners, and land owners alike formed a new national association, the IPAA.

Today, IPAA represents the thousands of independent oil and natural gas producers and service companies across the United States. Independent producers develop 95 percent of domestic oil and gas wells, produce 68 percent of domestic oil and produce 82 percent of domestic natural gas. A recent analysis has shown that independent producers are investing 150 percent of their domestic cash flow back into domestic oil and natural gas development—borrowing funds 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 Administration and federal agencies. IPAA provides economic and statistical information about the domestic exploration and production industry. IPAA also develops investment symposia and other opportunities for its members.
