The Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America (RPSEA) is a consortium of premier U.S. energy industry, research universities, independent research organizations, and foundations collaborating with state and federal agencies to meet the nation’s growing need for hydrocarbon resources produced from reservoirs in America.

RPSEA provides a unique management role in ensuring focused research, development and deployment of safe and environmentally sensitive technology that will effectively deliver hydrocarbons to the citizens of the United States.

RPSEA’s Onshore Resources (ROR) Program is a collaborative technology development enterprise focused on delivering leveraged value in research investment to meet members’ global onshore business needs, specifically in the upstream and midstream business, including carbon capture, use, and storage, produced water management, use, and disposal and other needed actions. The ROR Program is open to any interested oil/gas companies, government agencies, oil field service, engineering, and manufacturing companies, as well as foundations, universities and other research organizations.

There are three different levels of membership for the ROR Program.

  • Member – 100,000 (2 voting members) or $50,000 (1 voting member) annually
  • Associate Member – $20,000 annually
  • Associate Partner – $5,000 annually

Each Member has one or two representatives, depending on funding level, on the Management Committee. The Management Committee, by majority vote, makes all decisions regarding the scope, cost, and performance of the work performed under the core projects. Associate Members may participate as a non-voting member in Management Committee meetings. The Management Committee decides whether an Associate Member or group thereof may participate in a certain core project. Associate Partners may elect to have a Master Service Agreement with RPSEA in order to provide support for research projects.

RPSEA PROJECTS

Members collaborate in the development of common technology. In doing so, each party minimizes the cost and risk of developing the technology while at the same time making the most of technology achievements.

RPSEA’s Research for Onshore Resources Program is a collaborative technology development enterprise focused on delivering leveraged value in research investment to meet members’ global onshore business needs, specifically in the upstream and midstream business, including carbon capture, use, and storage, produced water management, use, and disposal and other needed actions.
