America’s natural gas and oil industry is meeting the growing global demand for energy by delivering affordable and reliable fuels while protecting the environment. Through our investments in world-class technology and research and the ingenuity of the American workforce, we’re helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and around the planet.

But to meet today’s energy and climate needs, no one should go it alone. We’ll only find the solutions to meet the challenges of our time by combining everyone’s strength, dedication and perspective. That’s how we’ve been able to reduce CO2 emissions in the U.S. to their lowest levels in a generation even as we meet our nation’s energy needs. We’re on a journey to ensure a better, sustainable future for generations to come.

Sign up to join us on this journey to build that better future.

Who We Are

API represents all segments of America’s natural gas and oil industry. Our nearly 600 members produce, process, and distribute most of the nation’s energy. The industry supports more than ten million U.S. jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of millions of Americans. API was formed in 1919 as a standards-setting organization. In our first 100 years, API has developed more than 700 standards to enhance operational and environmental safety, efficiency and sustainability.
