Every three years the World Petroleum Council presents the WPC Excellence Awards in 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 objective of the WPC Excellence Awards (WPCEA) is to distinguish companies, institutions or any public or private organisation (not individuals) engaged in the oil and gas industry for promoting or operating with high excellence standards. Companies can submit their projects for consideration up to June 19, 2020.

 

As part of the WPCEA’s, the WPC also present the WPC Excellence Awards for Youth to highlight the important contribution by youth to the energy industry, and reward the best young authors of the Congress. These are selected from the best abstracts submitted by young professionals under 35.

 

The winners will announced on Monday December 7, the first day of the 23rd World Petroleum Congress, during the WPC Excellence Awards Ceremony. For more details visit https://www.world-petroleum.org/wpc-excellence-awards.

 

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. Full details of the programme are available at www.wpc2020.com.

 

Organised by the World Petroleum Council, the Congress takes place in Houston, Texas, December 6-10, 2020. The triennial Congress is the premier event of the oil and gas sector and attracts the highest-level industry and government leaders from around the world, including heads of state, ministers of energy and C-suite executives.
