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. Prospective and new oil and gas producers can join as members. And established producers can join as peer countries. Membership is free, it’s voluntary and it’s non-binding. Countries can withdraw at any time. Continued membership is contingent on active participation in activities every year. Applications can be made by individuals representing any government agency – whether petroleum, finance, environment or planning – or a national oil company.
New individual members
Membership is open to government officials and state-owned enterprises from our member and peer 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 receiving technical assistance or participating in an exchange with a peer involves costs that the member country pays for or that the NPG and the member governments fundraise for together.

Our vision is for emerging oil and gas producers to be able to effectively leverage their resources for sustainable and equitable development, while successfully navigating their own energy transition.
To achieve this, NPG aims to act as a catalyst for sustainable energy transitions for emerging oil and gas producers. We will continue to make the most of the unique space NPG provides, delivering impact through our training & toolkits, research & analysis, by convening dialogues, and through our new policy labs, which offer structured technical assistance and policy reform facilitation.
Sponsorship opportunities exist for our new Policy Labs on emissions and our Annual Meeting, as well as programmatic support. The New Producers Group is a non-profit initiative. Funds are managed by the Commonwealth Secretariat. The below organisations have sponsored us over the past 3 years.
