Who We Are


American Petroleum Partners, LLC (APP) is a company involved in the exploration and production of oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (collectively called “hydrocarbons”) in the Appalachian Basin. Our company was founded by a group of individuals who believe in a true partnership to harness the natural resources beneath our feet. The management team alone has more than 100 years of cumulative experience in this industry.

Most importantly, we believe in leading by example in producing energy for this country while raising the bar for workplace safety and environmental responsibility.

APP is headquartered just south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and its initial exploration and development activities are focused in the northern panhandle of West Virginia.  Our operations include leasing mineral rights, constructing well pad sites, drilling and completion operations, and creating and maintaining midstream pipelines to transport produced hydrocarbons.  APP has also teamed up with The Environmental Partnership which is comprised of companies in the U.S. oil and natural gas industry committed to continuously improve the industry’s environmental performance, with a commitment to reduce the overall environmental footprint. 

At its core, APP is an industry leader in innovation that maintains respect for the communities where its stakeholders live and work.  












We encourage open, honest communication with community leaders, landowners, and local businesses. Please consider this an introduction to our company and do not hesitate to reach out should you have questions or concerns.
