21st WPC Technical Programme
– Overview –
Responsibly Energising a Growing World
As the world population increases, access to affordable, safe and reliable sources of energy will be a key factor in promoting economic development and well-being for humankind. Oil and natural gas will continue to be the world’s leading energy resource for the foreseeable future. Meeting future demand in a sustainable and socially responsible manner will require massive investments, leading edge technologies, the highest skilled human resources, and superior ethical business practices. Producers, consumers, governments and societies need to cooperate responsibly to develop all energy resources. To do so, the industry has to energise its professionals; in particular youth, to become even more innovative in ensuring future growth.
