Welcome to SAPIA
Welcome to the South African Petroleum Industry Association website. SAPIA is a trade organisation representing the main petroleum and liquefied petroleum gas companies in South Africa.

SAPIA plays a strategic role in addressing a range of common issues relating to the refining, distribution and marketing of petroleum and LPG products, as well as promoting the industry’s environmental and socio-economic progress.

Our key priorities are as follows:
• Promote industry transformation and skills development.
• Facilitate the security of supply of petroleum products.
• Promote health, safety, security and environment within the industry.
• Provide input into the development of climate change policy and regulations including that pertaining to the monitoring, measuring and reporting of GHG emissions.
• Make the transition to cleaner fuels in a manner that avoids any supply disruptions in the most cost-effective way possible.
• Contribute to policy formulation, implementation and a fair regulatory framework for all.
