:- The Mozambique Drillers Association (Associação de Perfuração de Moçambique - APM) was established in 2006, with support from the World Bank. For a few years it actively worked to improve standards in the drilling sector in Mozambique, but it struggled to overcome the many challenges facing it, and it no longer has an active online presence. More information on  its development and achievements, and some of the challenges, can be found in this [[Case Study Mozambique Drillers Association | '''Case Study''']].
