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.
