About Us

Apex International Energy is an independent  oil and gas exploration and production company focused on Egypt.

Apex International Energy is a young independent oil and gas company formed to pursue upstream growth opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa region. We currently have assets in Egypt and are exploring new business opportunities across our target region stretching from Morocco to Oman. Apex is led by a team of seasoned industry veterans based in Cairo and Houston with substantial expertise growing profitable oil and gas operations in the MENA region.


Apex is building an exploration and production business of scale by actively pursuing acquisitions and drilling opportunities. Our focus ranges from producing assets to new development opportunities to exploration through license rounds, direct awards from host governments, and farm-in’s. Our team has commenced exploration activities on two recently awarded concessions totaling 1.7 million acres in the prolific Abu Gharadig Basin in the Western Desert of Egypt.


Apex is backed by three primary equity investors, Warburg Pincus, the International Finance Corporation and the IFC Middle East and North Africa Fund, LP, the latter two of which are part of the World Bank Group. All have deep sector expertise in energy and substantial experience in the MENA region.
