About Us

The San Joaquin Valley Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute is a non-profit organization comprised of petroleum related professionals.

The objective of this organization is to foster a spirit of cooperation among those directly or indirectly engaged in the production of oil or gas by encouraging a free exchange of ideas among members. We strive to create an understanding by the public of the close economic relationship that exists between the petroleum industry and other lines of business and the community. We support local educational and petroleum related vocational training activities, and provide a forum for the discussion of local problems and issues related to the production of oil and gas, or other topics of current interest.

We are proud to award API Scholarships each year to local students pursuing careers in the petroleum industry, or a closely related field.

This is not an easy task, so we rely on our various fundraisers, API members, volunteers, and local community support to enable us to realize our goals. We hope that you will join us!

The San Joaquin Valley Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Tax ID 95-3086622
