Since inception some eighteen years ago, the International Oil Summit gathers annually Energy and Oil Ministers, Heads of IEA, OPEC and IEF, CEOs and key industry leaders, from IOCs, NOCs and service sector, to discuss the most relevant issues of the oil sector. Over the past years, the Summit has been the circle for policy makers and industry leaders to exchange views on ways and means to address a large spectrum of oil related issues such as securing investment and meeting future oil demand, addressing oil market volatility and its effects on investment, improving dialogue among producing and consuming countries, and between oil and service companies on project management and risk sharing.
Such genuine debate has tremendously benefited from the participants of high caliber speakers such as Energy and/or Oil Ministers of Algeria, France India, Nigeria, Norway, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates Venezuela, … as well as CEOs and leaders from the petroleum industry such as Anadarko, BHP, BP, Cheniere, Chevron, CGG, Halliburton, Hellenic Petroleum, IFP Energies Nouvelles, Norsk Hydro, Perenco, Petrobras, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Schlumberger, Shell, Sonatrach, Statoil, Total, Technip, Vallourec, etc.
The 2017 edition of the Summit will examine how oil industry is adjusting to a new oil price environment and assess impact of such adjustments on industry investment and profitability. The Summit will also look at ways and means to successfully do business and implement sustainable energy policies in an increasingly carbon-constrained world.
