The Texas Independent Producers & Royalty Owners Association (TIPRO) is one of the nation’s largest statewide associations serving both independent producers and royalty owners. TIPRO proudly serves as the leading voice for the Texas oil and gas industry, advocating for members at both the state and federal level to preserve the ability for independents to explore for and produce oil and natural gas.
TIPRO membership can benefit you, your company and our industry. Your support and involvement will provide access to
many value resources and enable us to accomplish our
educational, legal, operational and advocacy related
objectives. We offer a variety of membership categories. Each membership level has a required minimum fee, with a range for voluntary contributions above that level for members to support the organization at varying amounts, as they desire.
