About Us

The Corpus Christi API is a nonprofit organization and Chapter of the national trade association of the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry. Membership comes from all segments of the industry, including the largest majors to the smallest of independents, refiners, pipeline operators, services and supply companies. The API supports a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry through advocacy, research, statistics, standards, certification and education. As well, our initiatives are to provide scholarships & funds to our communities.

Our mission is to promote the fellowship and professional development of our members through the exchange of operational experience and operations oriented meeting programs, along with a variety of fund raising events which support educational scholarships and community service projects.
