WPC UK National Committee

The UK National Committee’s main activities are to contribute to the WPC international congresses. The Committee undertakes a programme of activities in support of the UK representation at the congresses and to foster energy knowledge exchange in the UK. This includes:

  • Identification of themes, paper authors and chairpersons for the various congress sessions
  • Organisation of the UK National Committee’s own workshops, round tables and Ministerial sessions at the WPC congresses
  • Representation and visibility of UK energy at the international congresses and WPC leadership conferences
  • Staging of workshops and symposia in the UK on themes of interest to the UK energy industry
  • Activities of the WPC UK Young Professionals at the congresses and in the UK.

The Committee works closely with other organisations, institutes and associations in an open, collaborative and transparent way. Committee members may represent any energy field and may typically come from companies, academia, government, professional institutes, associations or agencies.

The UK Committee Secretariat is hosted by the Energy Institute.

The World Petroleum Council (WPC)

The WPC is a non-advocacy, non-political organisation with charitable status in the U.K. and has accreditation as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) from the United Nations (UN). The WPC is dedicated to the promotion of sustainable use and management of the world’s petroleum resources for the benefit of all.

Headquartered in London, since 1933, the World Petroleum Council includes over 65 member countries from around the world representing over 95% of global oil and gas production and consumption.

The WPC’s main purpose is to catalyse and facilitate dialogue amongst internal and external stakeholders aimed at seeking solutions to key technical, social, environmental and management challenges in global energy issues for the benefit of mankind. In doing so, the WPC will contribute towards sustainable growth.

The WPC does not take a position on the key issues facing oil and gas, but it provides a forum where the solutions to key challenges can be addressed.
