The 2020 WPC Excellence Awards are Open for Submissions

Every three years the World Petroleum Council presents the WPC Excellence Awards

The WPC Excellence Awards incompass two categories, Technological Development and Social Responsibility, recognising exceptional achievements in the oil and gas industry. Each category has two winners, one from an NOC or large business and the other to represent the work of small and medium size organisations. The winners will be announced at the 23rd World Petroleum Congress this December in Houston.

The 23rd World Petroleum Congress will provide the platform for open dialogue between consumers and producers, governments and industry, academia and financiers, leaders and society, in order to address these issues and present debates, developments and solutions for sustainable production and use of the world's energy resources.

The World Petroleum Council

The World Petroleum Council was established in 1933 and provides a neutral platform for discussion of the issues facing the oil and gas industry and its stakeholders around the globe. It is a non-advocacy, non-political organisation, dedicated to the application of scientific advances in the oil and gas industries, technology transfer and the sustainable use of the world’s petroleum resources for the benefit of all. The WPC is registered as a charity in the UK. Its 65 member countries represent 96% of the world’s oil and gas production and consumption.

The triennial World Petroleum Congress is the oil and gas industry’s largest and most prestigious international event. Known as “the Olympics of the oil and gas sector”, the 23rd World Petroleum Congress will be held in Houston, USA, from 6-10 December 2020.
