who we are

We’re pleased to introduce you to American Petroleum Partners LLC (“APP”)
Please join us as our partner - Tell us your story and ask questions about how we can collectively achieve success.

As you undoubtedly know, the energy industry is facing a very challenging period. The whole energy complex has been turned upside down by low prices affecting everyone, including mineral and surface landowners. Motivated by a rapid growth profile, many producers operating in Appalachia have taken on too much debt and are left with limited cash to fund drilling. As a result, landowners are affected by these irresponsible actions and are facing diminished royalties. In the midst of these challenges, we felt that the environment was ideal to launch a new, well-capitalized exploration and production (E&P) company. Hence, we’re pleased to introduce you to American Petroleum Partners LLC (“APP”). As has been recently announced, APP, headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, has partnered with funds affiliated with Apollo Global Management, LLC and is focused on exploration in the Appalachian Basin. APP has heavily invested in hiring a very talented, skilled and intellectual team of energy professionals with unique skillsets in geology/geophysics, land, engineering, drilling, production and midstream. The team is very experienced in creating value for landowners in the Appalachian Basin and specifically, the Utica and Marcellus shale formations. Obviously, a critical element of APP’s success will be land. We consider all of our landowners to be passive partners and stakeholders in our business. As a stakeholder, APP is committed to making responsible decisions for the benefit of you, the landowner.
