Explore Offshore, a project of the American Petroleum Institute, is a national coalition that supports offshore energy exploration and production to help supply affordable energy for American consumers, small businesses, and manufacturers.

This coalition has brought together small businesses, local associations, and veterans groups in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia to voice support for offshore energy exploration and production that can increase jobs, investments, and reliable, safe, and affordable energy. Our coastal states rely on accessible and affordable energy every day to do everything from cooking dinner to heating their households and businesses, and commuting to and from work.

Our mission is to unite supporters of safe and environmentally responsible offshore energy exploration and development and to promote its importance to our nation’s economy and U.S. energy security.
