Geopolitical factors and sudden increased demand have made 2022 a challenging year for consumers not only in Texas, but across the world that are paying higher than normal prices for energy. While there has been a bipartisan consensus, including from the White House, that the United States needs to continue exporting natural gas to our allies, there continues to be disagreement over U.S. exports of oil and refined products.
TIPRO is a trade association representing the interests of nearly 3,000 independent oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners throughout Texas. As the largest statewide association in Texas that represents both independent producers and royalty owners, members include small businesses, the largest, publicly-traded independent producers, and mineral owners, estates, and trusts.
Oil and gas operations are commonly found in remote locations far from company headquarters. Now, it's possible to monitor pump operations, collate and analyze seismic data, and track employees around the world from almost anywhere. Whether employees are in the office or in the field, the internet and related applications enable a greater multidirectional flow of information – and control – than ever before.
