African Petroleum Producers' Association (APPA)

The African Petroleum Producers’ Association (APPA) is an intergovernmental organisation created in 1987 in Lagos, Nigeria, to serve as a platform for African petroleum producing countries to cooperate, collaborate, share knowledge and competences. It aims to promote common policy initiatives and projects in all facets of the petroleum industry with a view to maximising the developmental and welfare benefits accruable from petroleum exploitation activities in the Member Countries in particular and in Africa in general.

APPA currently comprises fourteen Member Countries namely, Algeria, Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, SPLAJ (Libya), Nigeria and South Africa.
