The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) is the peak national body representing Australia’s oil and gas exploration and production industry.
APPEA has about 55 full member companies.
These include oil and gas explorers and producers active in Australia. Our members account for about 95 per cent of Australia’s petroleum production.
We also represent about 70 associate member companies that provide a wide range of goods and services to the upstream oil and gas industry in Australia.
APPEA aims to secure regulatory and commercial conditions that enable member companies to operate safely, sustainably, and profitably.
We also seek 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.
