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.


  • 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

    Domestic energy industry bears the brunt of President Obama’s limitless abuse of executive authority

    The eight years of the Obama Administration have been defined by an ever more aggressive disregard for Constitutional separation of powers and unprecedented abuse of Executive Authority. No sector of the economy has been spared. But there is no doubt that the domestic energy industry has borne the brunt of this abuse.

    As of this writing there is just over one month until the General Election of 2016. While much of the national media remains fixated on the battle for the White House it is the struggle for control of the Senate that might ultimately have the greater impact on history.
