State, Local and Federal Advocacy

Since 1946, TIPRO has given the state's independent oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners a unified voice before local, state and federal entities. 

Today, TIPRO is made up of 3,000 members in the crude oil and natural gas exploration/production industry and affiliated businesses. It is one of the state’s strongest oil and gas advocacy groups, and one of the largest statewide petroleum groups in the nation representing producers and royalty owners.

TIPRO 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, current industry news and information, and various opportunities throughout the year to engage in networking, education and advocacy. 

The ever-growing demands made on the industry by the general public, as well as federal, state and local governments, require a focused commitment to policy issues. Led by a staff of skilled professionals and supported by active members, committees and a board of directors, TIPRO ensures the voice of every energy producer and royalty owner is heard.

Please consider joining a TIPRO committee to stay abreast of issues facing the Texas oil and natural gas industry and to strengthen our voice on legislative, regulatory and judicial matters. Exclusive to TIPRO members, individuals can participate in person, by phone or simply elect to receive committee updates via email.
