About International Petroleum Week

Global oil and gas markets and investment are today being defined and redefined by geopolitics, sustainability and technology.

For IP Week 2019, the Energy Institute brings together high-level industry figures and thinkers on energy, helping senior leaders to assess the state of play and prognosis across these key themes.

  • Geopolitics – Alongside discussion about the global market and uncertain price environment, IP Week will shine a spotlight on key regions through dedicated conferences, including the Middle East, Russia and Africa.
  • Sustainability – With the increasing importance of natural gas and the global transition to lower carbon energy sources gathering pace, discussion will centre on how business models are adapting to reflect this agenda.
  • Technology – The conference places a bigger focus than ever on how digitisation, data management and analytics are driving change and optimising operations up and down the value chain.

Navigating uncertainty, transition and change presents challenges and opportunities for leaders across the oil and gas industry. IP Week puts dialogue around these issues centre stage.

Hosted by the Energy Institute and put together by leading industry experts, the event is a renowned and respected fixture in the annual calendar. It sees more than 1,500 senior executives from around the world gather in London for three days of conferences, seminars, round-tables and social events, bringing together the knowledge, experience and expertise of the most senior figures from across the landscape.
