Royalty Owners & Producers Educational Coalition (ROPE) was formed to educate and energize the grassroots of American oil and natural gas.

As a royalty owner, your input and involvement matters.

Royalty owners and oil and gas producers, working together, ensure that private mineral interests and our industry are protected.

How can you be involved?

  1. Sign up on this website to receive our ROPE Coalition Action Alerts.

  3. Follow ROPE on Facebook.
  4. Tell your friends, relatives and other royalty owners about the ROPE.
  5. Please don’t hesitate to email with specific areas of interest.


ROPE seeks active partners from both the royalty owner community and the oil and gas industry – who see the benefit of mutual education and advocacy.

How did we get started?

The creation of the Royalty Owners and Producers Educational (ROPE) Coalition movement was led by Julie Kruger Musselman. A long-time National Association of Royalty Owners (NARO) member from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Julie is past chair of the NARO National Legislative Council. Because of her nearly three decades “in the trenches” working local, state and national issues for NARO and its members, Julie has a keen sense for the potential power in the multitude of royalty owner voices.
