Key Issues

Learn more about the national key issues and priorities that IPAA is engaged in on behalf of America’s independent oil and natural gas producers:

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.

Crude oil and natural gas exports benefit American consumers.

IPAA is the industry’s strongest presence in the nation’s capital and these are important times. The entire oil and gas industry remains under fire from anti-development groups; but with these challenges arise unique opportunities that IPAA is seizing for our members.
