The San Joaquin Valley Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute is a non-profit organization comprised of petroleum related professionals. We strive 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 support several community organizations as well as educational programs each year, and we are proud to award API Scholarships to local students pursuing careers in the petroleum industry or a closely related field.

Please contact Aaron Altamirano at if you would like to make a donation for scholarships.
