Membership is open to oil and gas operators; service or research companies and institutions developing, interfacing with and deploying fiber optic monitoring systems in the upstream oil and gas industry; and suppliers of components and communications and supporting systems.  Each member is expected to contribute to the activities of SEAFOMTM, including participation in knowledge sharing, and provision of technical expertise in the technical Working Groups.

Each member company may send up to a maximum of four representatives to each meeting.  Two will be allowed to attend at no extra charge (beyond the annual membership fee), as would a third, if that person is making a presentation.  Beyond that one further person may attend subject to pre-meeting payment of an additional fee (currently GBP £300 per meeting).
