22nd World Petroleum Congress

9 - 13 June 2017

Event Description

As the Turkish  National Committee (TNC) of the World Petroleum Council (WPC), we are honored  to be selected to host the 22nd World Petroleum Congress in 2017. 

Turkey’s close  proximity to more than 75% of the global oil and gas reserves makes it a  natural bridge between world’s 2nd largest gas market, continental  Europe and world’s largest oil and gas resources, namely the Middle East and  Caspian Region. Besides being a huge market with a rapidly growing economy,  Turkey is a young and dynamic country where demand for energy increases  consistently. Furthermore, Turkey still stays as a large frontier in terms of  hydrocarbon exploration. Lately, the recent discoveries in the nearby geography  have revived the interests of major companies in the Turkey section of Black  Sea and Eastern Mediterranean. The shale gas potential in Turkey is also  substantial and unconventional exploratory drillings in two basins in Turkey  already started. All these dynamics make Turkey an important player in the  global petroleum industry.  

İstanbul, which  is uniquely spanning the two continents of Europe and Asia, acting as a  physical and metaphorical bridge between East and West, is a city that calmly  reconciles the traditional with the modern. In light of the previous events  (such as ‘The 5th World Water Forum-2009’, 10.000 delegates, won the  bid for The World Energy Congress-WEC 2016) high quality hotels (more than  30.000 rooms), excellent congress facilities and services being in the walking  distance to the Congress Valley in the heart of the city,  we would like to assure you that, Istanbul, with the historical heritage will  provide an unforgettable event for all congress participants.  

İstanbul is a  global city that has the spirit, history, culture and technology. Along with  the strong support from the government, institutions, corporates, academia and  private companies, we are sure that Istanbul, with her mystical and modern  atmosphere, is going to fulfill the expectations in a very high level and  enchant all the congress participants.  

We are ready to  welcome you to Istanbul for this very distinguished event 22nd WPC  on 9-13 July, 2017.
