The North Dakota Petroleum Council membership rates are divided into four categories with rates dependent upon various factors for each.* Find your category to learn more about membership rates and how you can join the NDPC today.


Oil and Gas Producers

This category includes companies engaged in upstream activities. Membership dues are based on total production equal to the gross amount of oil produced (in barrels) plus gross gas production (in million cubic feet per day) between September 1 and August 31 each year as they are reported to and by the North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources.

Oil and Gas Transportation and Processing

This membership includes companies engaged in the midstream activities of the oil and gas industry. Membership rates are based on the daily throughput of North Dakota crude oil and natural gas pipeline and natural gas processing systems. Crude oil transport is measured in barrels of oil per day and natural gas is measured in million cubic feet per day. If a company transports crude oil and natural gas, the throughput will be a combination of both commodities.


Companies engaged in the downstream aspect of the petroleum industry. Membership rates are based on the average daily refining capacity.
