Welcome! We are the American Exploration & Production Council – commonly referred to as AXPC. We represent large, U.S. independent oil and natural gas exploration and production companies. Our members are industry leaders, many of which are listed in the Fortune 500 and Platt’s Top 250 Global Energy Companies. Here on this blog, we hope to be a resource for those looking to learn more about natural gas and oil, and the policies and regulations impacting their production.
As industry leaders, we seek to inform fact-based policy and promote the safe growth and exploration of America’s plentiful natural resources. By collaborating with lawmakers and regulators we are working to solidify the United States’ position as the world’s largest energy producer. Our top priority is to educate, providing both technical and regulatory knowledge.
This blog will also highlight innovative projects and the state-of-the-art technology being used by our member companies. Our industry is determined to become smarter, more efficient, and technology driven – and we would love to show how exactly we are doing that each day. We will also keep you appraised of regulatory updates in our industry as we champion policies that ensure the safety of our employees and the environment.
All AXPC members work in collaboration with the communities in which they operate. That is why our blog will share stories from our members’ employees and showcase the positive impacts they are having in their communities. Our member companies have been recognized for their commitment to the people in their workforce and been named some of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for 2018, as well the Houston Chronicle’s Top Workplaces for 2018.
