Who we are
The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) is the peak national body representing Australia’s upstream oil and gas industry. APPEA’s 80-plus member companies account for 98 per cent of the nation’s oil and gas production and the Association’s 220 associate members provide a wide range of goods and services to the industry.
APPEA works with state and commonwealth governments to advocate and develop policies that promote safe and sustainable development of Australia’s oil and gas resources. The association also publishes information about the sector’s activities and its economic importance to the nation.
