There are many ways you can support what we do: getting involved as a member, becoming a sponsor or a knowledge partner.


New member countries

The New Producers Group welcomes new member countries from emerging oil and gas provinces and established oil and gas producers. Applications can be made by individuals representing any government agency – whether petroleum, finance, environment or planning – or a national oil company. Continued membership is contingent on active participation in activities every year.

New individual members

Membership is open to government officials and state-owned enterprises from our emerging and established oil and gas producing countries.

If you are not in government, but interested in supporting the Group please visit our Become a partner or Sponsor us pages. You can also access our resources and publications, which are freely available to the public.


There is no cost to join the New Producers Group. Participating in some activities involves costs related to travel – notably in-person training, workshops and the annual meeting. Where necessary, the Secretariat works to raise funds to offer stipends to support travel costs.

The Helpdesk is free, but member governments shoulder a share of the project’s personnel and travel costs in addition to their own costs when requesting more substantial technical assistance or exchange programmes with other countries.

    Our sponsors are crucial to delivering our mission to help new oil and gas producers manage their petroleum resources effectively and prepare for the world beyond oil and gas.

    Sponsors allow us to deliver a wide range of capacity-building activities at no cost to governments and enable us to cover the travel costs of governments from Least Developed Countries, environmental agencies and civil society organisations. The below organisations have sponsored us over the past 5 years.

    The New Producers Group is a non-profit initiative and funds are managed by Chatham House, a registered charity in England and Wales (charity number 208223). The institute has been granted foreign 501(c)3 equivalency status with the United States Internal Revenue Service.

      Our knowledge partners are organisations that contribute largely pro-bono to the project. They may offer training sessions or participate in joint research. They may fund joint activities and also provide data and analysis for the benefit of the member countries.
