World Petroleum Council

The World Petroleum Council (WPC) was founded in 1933 with the task of organising world petroleum congresses. 60 countries, including Germany, are members of the WPC. Germany is one of the founding countries. In addition to organising the World Petroleum Congress, the WPC offers further events and numerous publications on oil and gas.

On the website of the WPC there is detailed information about all activities of the WPC: www.world-petroleum.org

Each member country maintains a national committee whose task is to ensure the funding of the WPC office in London and to support the preparation of the World Petroleum Congress.

In particular, the national committees are responsible for disseminating the Call for Papers and promoting the Congress. The members of the German National Committee (DNK) are executives from the various industrial branches and research institutes.

The spectrum covers all important branches of industry in the sector and includes not only economic and technological topics, but also important socio-ecological aspects. The WPC has succeeded in becoming an accepted mouthpiece of the international oil and gas industry. The German National Committee ensures that German and European economic interests are represented by suitable representatives or speakers.
