The GPA Midstream – Permian Basin (PBGPA) is a Non-Profit Organization committed to serving as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information regarding the midstream industry including oil, gas, and produced water. We provide training and social events encouraging interaction with others involved in the industry. We also provide scholarships to engineering college students in a continuing effort to attract new talent into the industry.
Our members include operating & producing companies, engineering firms as well as equipment & service providers all engaged in the processing and movement of natural gas, oil, and produced water – commonly referred to as the midstream sector of the energy industry.
PBGPA Midstream represents 45+ corporate members and more than 600 industry professionals employed by more than 125 different companies. We are the primary advocates for a sustainable Midstream Industry in the Permian Basin.
We are the primary advocates for a sustainable Midstream Industry focused on enhancing the viability of natural gas and natural gas liquids. We provide local, regional and global forums to develop standards, conduct industry research, educate our workforce and improve operational safety. As advocates, we work with legislators and regulators to promote a safe and viable Midstream Industry.
PBGPA is closely affiliated with the National GPA (GPAGlobal.org), however, we are a separate organization. There are five other Regional GPA Chapters that operate in the same way – North Texas, Mid-Continent, Rocky Mountain, Appalachian Basin and Houston. As separate organizations, each Regional GPA Chapter charges a modest membership fee to cover operating expenses, such as website maintenance, banking and credit card fees that allow for on-line payments/transactions. For this reason, membership to National GPA does not include membership to any of the Regional GPA Chapters. Individual membership dues are only $45.00 for the fiscal year which runs annually from June 1st to the following May 31st.
