IPW 2015, strategies for the changing oil and gas landscape
On February 10-12, with organizational support of the British Energy Institute, was held the traditional International Petroleum Week (IPW-2015).
IP Week is one of the most important annual forums for oil and gas, where influential industry figures and government officials discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the sector today and how to shape its future direction, attracting over 2,000 delegates from the global oil and gas industry worldwide.
The theme of the 2015 programme was “Strategies for the changing oil and gas landscape”. In this year of General Elections in the UK and continuing political uncertainty around the world, the role of oil and gas in sustaining society and economic growth has been brought closer to the fore and the need for the industry to meet future challenges has become even more acute.
Over the three days of conferences, roundtables and breakout sessions, have been reviewed the state of affairs both globally and locally with a new focus in 2015 on the US and Latin America.
The Middle East, Russia and the CIS, Africa and the Asia-Pacific regions will remain key areas of interest – even more so nowadays with the dramatic events taking place in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine.
