A New Day at IPANM
Southeastern New Mexico is riding a monster wave of oil production, which is leading to record state revenues! On August 28, 2019, the state's Legislative Finance Committee reports "the state is on pace to have nearly $2.3 billion in reserves at the end of the current budget year" which is all attributed to record state oil production!
The 2019 Annual Meeting took place from July 24 to 26, 2019 at the award-winning Hotel Chaco in Albuquerque!
Thanks to all of our great speakers, sponsors, and participants!
IPANM's Annual Wildlife in the Oilfield contest has become our most popular annual event and the most popular webpage on this site!
Feel free to submit any new photos that showcase wildlife adapting and benefiting from manmade changes in the oilfield.
The 2019 New Mexico Legislative Session ran from Jan. 15 to Mar. 16, 2019 in Santa Fe.
IPANM actively lobbied legislators and made dozens strategic public comments at legislative hearings on behalf of our members. But the work is not over. IPANM continues to represent members at interim committee meetings and in stakeholder groups throughout the year. Join IPANM to get active in these key meetings!
