The World Petroleum Council announced today that 2,000 abstracts were received for the 23rd World Petroleum Congress (WPC) Call for Papers – the highest number of submissions ever achieved in the history of the Congress.


“We are delighted that the 23rd WPC Call for Papers attracted so much interest from around the world with a record 2,000 submissions from 59 countries and more than 400 companies,” said Pedro Miras Salamanca, WPC Vice President, Programme and Chair of the Congress Programme Committee. “Our Programme Committee is looking forward to working closely with the Chairs of the Technical Forums to select the best papers and posters for the Congress.”


The Technical Forum Chairs are responsible for evaluating the 2,000 abstract submissions to select the top 300 abstracts to be presented as papers and posters at the Congress in December 2020. The high-level programme features 23 Technical Forums on innovative energy solutions across the oil and gas sector, from disruptive technologies to cleaner energy solutions.


Organised by the World Petroleum Council, the Congress takes place in Houston, Texas, December 6-10, 2020. The triennial Congress is the premier event of the oil and gas sector and attracts the highest-level industry and government leaders from around the world, including heads of state, ministers of energy and C-suite executives. More than 100 countries, 50 ministers, 700 expert speakers, 1,000 media, and 10,000 delegates are expected to participate in the Congress, which will also feature the World Petroleum Exhibition in the 50,000 square meter George R. Brown Convention Centre in Houston’s Downtown Campus.
