GPA MIDSTREAM ASSOCIATION MISSION STATEMENT

"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."

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH NATIONAL GPA MIDSTREAM

Although ABGPA Midstream is closely affiliated with the National GPA, it is a separate organization. There are five other regional chapters – Rocky Mountain, MidContinent, Permian Basin, Houston, and North Texas. As separate organizations, each regional chapter charges a modest membership fee to cover operating expenses (i.e. banking and credit card fees, which enable online transactions and website maintenance). Thus, membership to National GPA does not include membership to any of the individual regional chapters. For ABGPA Midstream, each individual or company, as applicable, is a separate member of the National GPA. The membership dues are only $55 per person and corporate memberships are $500 for each fiscal year, which runs annually from January 1st to the following December 31st.
