World Petroleum Congress Calgary 2023

We are glad to share the insights gained at the 24th World Petroleum Congress 2023, hosted in the vibrant city of Calgary from September 17th to 21st.

Our dedicated team actively participated in this globally renowned event, ready to collaborate, exchange ideas, and foster valuable partnerships. The Congress presented a unique opportunity to contribute to the dynamic discussions shaping the future of the petroleum and energy industries.

The World Petroleum Congress is aptly termed the "Olympics" of the petroleum industry. It comprehensively covers technological advancements in upstream and downstream operations, the role of natural gas and renewables, industry management, and its broader social, economic, and environmental impact. The 24th World Petroleum Congress was a result of a nail-biting competition where Canada secured the privilege to organize this prestigious event, edging past formidable contenders.

Insights and Highlights:

  • Historic Win: Canada secured the bid in a closely contested competition, winning by a single vote margin against Azerbaijan. This victory highlighted Canada's commitment to hosting a world-class gathering for the global oil and gas sector.
  • Global Participation: With representatives from over 100 nations, the Congress served as a melting pot for diverse perspectives, fostering enriching exchanges and an interactive exhibition.
  • Energy Transition: A central theme of the Congress was the path to Net Zero, addressing the global challenge of increasing energy demand while ensuring responsible transformation, good governance, and meeting the needs of society, climate, and the environment.
  • Networking Opportunities: there were several opportunities to engage with individuals globally who share a common vision of energy decarbonization, facilitated by the Trade Commissioner Service. These valuable connections would have been unfeasible to make in person without their assistance. 

The 24th World Petroleum Congress was a testament to the significance of international collaboration in shaping the future of the energy industry. Our team's active involvement in discussions, knowledge exchange, and networking reaffirmed our commitment to driving sustainable energy practices.
