As a proactive leader in our industry, we want to urge you to join us in the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance (DEPA).
 

About Us

The Domestic Energy Producers Alliance is a nationwide collaboration of 25 coalition associations – from California to West Virginia, Texas to Montana – representing about 10,000 individuals and companies engaged in domestic onshore oil and natural gas exploration and production (E&P). We believe in seeking common ground, and in common sense solutions to the challenges that face us in our businesses, including our relationship with the federal legislative and executive branches of government. In only its fifth year, DEPA now represents a majority of the individuals and companies responsible for the current renaissance in American oil and natural gas production.

Issues

  • Independents are not Big Oil

    More than 18,000 independent producers drill 95% of US oil and natural gas wells, and account for 67% of US production
  • Maintaining critical tax provisions

    The American public benefits from the tax provisions furnishing the capital to drill for the energy that all Americans need
  • Regulatory Common Sense

    As independent producers, royalty owners and our service industry partners, we are all united together – partisanship aside – to educate national decision-makers on who we are, what we do, and why the survival of the independent domestic energy industry is so vital to the nation’s economy

    Crude oil prices on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) closed below $50 per barrel on April 24 for the first time since May 29.

    Traders worldwide are trying to sort it all out, but a key factor is OPEC’s decision to continue its six-month agreement to reduce its oil production, which expires June 30.

    Trump Orders Agencies To Identify Obstacles To Energy Production

    Energy policy has taken an about-face in the nation’s capital.
