The Independent Petroleum Association of America is dedicated to ensuring a strong, viable domestic oil and natural gas industry, recognizing that an adequate and secure supply of energy is essential to the national economy.


Thanks to new technologies, America is the world’s oil and natural gas leader.

Independent producers reinvest as much as 150 percent of their US cash flow in new US projects.

Offshore oil and natural gas production accounts for 20% of U.S. energy production.

The Endangered Species Act has been abused to halt energy development.

As American natural gas consumption soars, methane emissions plummet.

From medicines to affordable electricity, oil and natural gas enrich life experiences.
