PBPA takes an active role in New Mexico legislative affairs. PBPA has recently developed a full-time presence in the state by employing a full time lobbyist based out of the state capital, Santa Fe. PBPA stays involved in all New Mexico’s industry related issues; from testifying at legislative hearings to working with the state and federal agencies to help shape energy policy.
New Mexico is the sixth largest oil producing and the fourth largest natural gas producing state in the nation. The vast majority of the oil produced in the state is produced in the Permian Basin region with the majority of natural gas produced in the northwest portion of the state.
Over two thirds of PBPA members are either domiciled in New Mexico or have some type of operations in the state. The Permian Basin extends into Chaves, Eddy, Lea and Roosevelt counties.
PBPA is proud to collaborate with New Mexico Oil and Gas Association and the Independent Petroleum Association of New Mexico.
