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 operations on two concessions governed Production Sharing Agreements totaling 1.7 million acres in the prolific producing basins within the Western Desert of Egypt.


Apex is backed by four primary equity investors, Blue Water Energy, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), IFC Middle East and North Africa Fund, LP, and Warburg Pincus. The two IFC entities are part of the World Bank Group. All have deep sector expertise in energy with experience in the MENA region.
