The National Stripper Well Association is the only national trade association which represents producers and operators of marginally economic crude oil and natural gas wells in the United States.
Americaís stripper wells make up approximately 80% of all domestic wells, producing almost 20% of U.S. oil and natural gas.
NSWA believes it is essential to protect an industry that makes such a significant contribution to the nationís economic security. The United States is the only country with significant production of stripper wells.
Approximately 400,000 jobs are directly or indirectly dependent upon marginal or stripper oil and gas wells. In fact, U.S. stripper wells collectively produce 1.2 million barrels per day- as much as we import from Saudi Arabia.
