the biggest. the best

NAPE is the oil and gas industry’s marketplace for the buying, selling and trading of prospects and for producing properties.

Founded in 1993 by AAPL, with partners IPAA, SEG and AAPG added over the next several years, NAPE has become the largest organization of its kind in the world, providing unmatched venues for oil and gas professionals to meet, network, connect and do business.

Our one-of-a-kind organization focuses on showcasing prospects in an environment where people come with the expectation of doing business. There is no other organization in the industry that replicates this combination or our track record of success. Deals are made at NAPE because we attract all the parties necessary to evaluate, fund and make deals. Investors, financiers, lawyers and small to large E&P’s view NAPE as the place to find out what is happening in the industry and to look for opportunities to grow their business. The oil and gas industry is fueled by deals. And NAPE is where deals happen.

Currently, NAPE hosts two annual events:

NAPE brings prospects and investors together as well as other professionals who are needed to evaluate, facilitate and execute deals.
