We’re in this together


NAPE was launched in 1993 to invigorate the industry during hard times. Over the last 26 years, NAPE has evolved into a multiday expo and business conference with unparalleled networking, learning and dealmaking opportunities, but the purpose of NAPE remains the same — to serve the upstream oil and gas industry in good times and bad. 

Now as we face more uncertainty in our industry and our world, we are working hard to continue to provide the place where professionals can come together for support, guidance, technical knowledge, employment opportunities and insights from the experts who have weathered the difficult times. At the same time, we are looking for new elements to add to our shows (including virtual participation) that will benefit our attendees and the industry. The energy industry has always found a way forward, and NAPE will continue to be an industry service and professional development resource.

Complimentary issues of NAPE — The Magazine for Dealmakers — packed with expert articles on the state of the industry, global outlooks, dealmaker spotlights and more — are currently available on our website. Our latest issue is in production and will be available soon.

NAPE is for industry, by industry. All profits are distributed to four nonprofit organizations who strengthen our industry (AAPL, IPAA, SEG and AAPG) through education, advocacy, professional development and other support. We encourage you to refer to their member resources as well.

NAPE is a true asset to the industry that will continue to grow and evolve to provide the most empowering benefits for our attendees and exhibitors. This is a hard time for all of us. We look forward to gathering again. In the meantime, if you have ideas or suggestions of something you'd like to see at NAPE, we'd love to hear from you!

Stay connected and stay safe.

Director of NAPE
