What we do
APPEA works with Australian governments to help promote the development of the nation’s oil and gas resources in a manner that maximises the return to the Australian industry and community.
APPEA aims to secure regulatory and commercial conditions that enable member companies to operate safely, sustainably, and profitably.
The Association also seeks to increase community and government understanding of the upstream petroleum industry by publishing information about the sector’s activities and economic importance to the nation.
APPEA also hosts several conferences each year to exchange ideas and contribute to the development of the industry’s policy positions.
