IP WEEK 2021: From crisis to low carbon opportunity – a decade of delivery for the oil and gas industry
This coming decade will be defined by three historic, global challenges: building a resilient recovery from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic; achieving the UN goal of universal access to energy for all populations; and charting an ambitious course - at COP26 and beyond - for tackling the threat we all face from the climate emergency.
Today’s oil and gas sector faces the toughest of operating environments, but the ingenuity of its people, its engineering capabilities and innovative spirit will all be pivotal in rising to these global challenges.
As the sector’s leaders and influencers gather virtually for IP Week 2021, for a programme uniquely convened and curated by the Energy Institute’s industry experts, this remains the pre-eminent international event for building collaboration between industry, government and society.
The urgency of action, together with the associated risks and opportunities in geographies around the world, will be at the heart of an unmissable week’s agenda.

IP WEEK 2021 REVIEW

Here's what people said about IP Week:
"We aspire for IP Week to be the pre-eminent event for thinking, discussing and creating collaboration in tackling the dual challenge of economic development and climate change."
"I am very happy to see the energy transition as a big part of this year's conference as we head towards COP26 in Glasgow. That makes me very proud to be a Fellow of the Energy Institute - and prouder still that BP is a big supporter."
"Events like IP Week are absolutely critical. It's very important that we get different voices in the room, rather than different voices shouting at each other from different rooms. In a polarised world, it's really important that we have panels that look not just at the challenges but also the solutions."
"Climate urgency permeated the room at IP Week 2020 in a way I haven't experienced before at an oil and gas conference."
"It’s really fantastic that the energy transition, the need to address climate change, has been put front and centre of the IP Week agenda. So I want to congratulate the sector and the people who’ve organised the event for taking that very bold step."
"If IP Week felt like a mediated confrontation between the tensions of public pressure over climate change, and what the future of energy companies will look like, it was still a notable shift."
"The way climate dominated this year’s IP Week illustrated the increasing sense of urgency among the oil and gas industry in addressing the issue."
"Last year, protesters glued their hands to the doors of the conference venue complaining of record winter heat. This year, climate experts were invited in and given the floor."
"The work the Energy Institute (EI) does in driving forward new thinking on the transition is absolutely critical."
