Membership Benefits
OIPA's membership benefits programs offer association members significant cost savings on products and services necessary for the day-to-day operation of oil and natural gas exploration and production companies and the businesses that support them.

Insurance Programs

Bituminous Insurance Companies
The Bituminous Insurance program offers qualifying members the possibility of a dividend payment each year. Bituminous' broad coverages include general, umbrella and pollution liability, workers comp, property, inland marine, and commercial auto at competitive rates and the possibility of a dividend each year. More than $4.1 million has been returned to OIPA members since the program's inception in 2003. If your agent is a Bituminous agent, ask them to tell the underwriter that you would like to participate in the OIPA/Bituminous plan. If you are already insured with Bituminous, your agent can put you in the program at your next renewal.

Dividends are not promised but based on OIPA /Bituminous pool profitability. They are usually paid in June. For example, in June 2008, participants in the program received 28 percent of their 2006-2007 premiums back in a dividend check. The program is based on premiums from July to the next July.

The OIPA's control of well program through Burke-Daniels offers an upfront discount for qualifying participants in the OIPA pool. OIPA members can obtain control of well insurance at a discounted rate through three different underwriters for every size client and well type. Each OIPA member's own insurance agent will handle the account and will be paid standard commissions. The program includes complimentary Blowout Contingency Planning by Cudd Well Control, well control training and a 10 percent discount on Drilling Plan Reviews and Enhancements  and Rig Inspections

Available for both operators and non-operators, the program offers competitive rating with specific program rate credits,and offers the lowest possible minimum premiums for those smaller clients who have been "priced out" of the market for Cost of Control in the past.

Blue Cross Blue Shield
The OIPA's health insurance program  is open to companies with 2 to 150 employees and offers qualifying OIPA members a rate adjustment on Blue Cross Blue Shield services. Existing Blue Cross Blue Shield customers are eligible to participate in the OIPA program upon plan anniversary.  Companies must be based in Oklahoma and certain SIC codes are required.
