If I am working on a web application and being provided the API for webservices that I have to integerate with my web application.
Is it possible for the owner of that web services API to figuire out who is accessing the services, from which location or IP address ?

As per my opinion there is not direct way to find who is accessing your web service but for make facility or probing request come to web service there is one way using MessageInspector you got place where Every request will come who will try
to access your web service and check and investigate request And using below code you can find ip address and much more detail
HttpRequest req = base.Request;
string address= req.UserHostAddress;

That depends like if you have to pass some kind of validation like licence key or hash with your web service request then probably they will identify that who is accessing it.
Other thing is sometimes they while list your ip address and then only you can consume their web service, in that case they will know who is accessing the web service.
