The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association is
the peak national body representing Australia’s oil and gas exploration
and production industry.
It has about 60 full member companies. These are oil and gas
explorers and producers active in Australia. APPEA members account for
an estimated 98 per cent of the nation’s petroleum production. APPEA
also represents about 140 associate member companies that provide a wide
range of goods and services to the upstream oil and gas industry.
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.
