The IPFC (International Perforating Forum Company) BOD voted for launching a membership platform for our website. This decision came as a well-needed solution to make our content exclusively visible to our members as our day and age requires our content to be protected from undesired web activity. This membership will put our forum along with other reputable organizations in the oil and gas industry who have been offering membership levels to professionals.

We encourage you to tap into our vast collection of resources and our extensive experience since its inception in 2008. Since IPF’s (International Perforating Forum) mission is to collect and exchange technical knowledge, we encourage our members to utilize these resources.

As a member, you’ll receive:

  • eligibility to attend all our international symposia

  • free access to online continuing education through our webinars

  • free access to technical presentations from previous and current symposia

  • a complimentary subscription to the Journal of International Perforating Forum

  • a wealth of resources for networking, knowledge building and streaming content

  • membership icon: use your IPF membership designation on email signatures, online profiles,

or printed material such as resumes or business cards to promote your membership in IPF and your professionalism
