Recognising the importance of involving more young people in the oil and gas sector, the World Petroleum Council WPC organises a number of events focusing on young people and their role in the oil and gas industry.
Every three years the World Petroleum Council organises a special Forum for young people created by the WPC's Young Professionals. There have been five WPC Youth Forums so far with the 6th edition recently held in St Petersburg in June 2019. The lastest Youth Forum was very successful attracting over 1000 delegates.
The Closing Speech was presented by Lesana Kurbonshoeva, Official Representative of Russia within the Young Professionals Committee and Stephane Rousselet, Chair of the WPC Young Professionals Committee. To read what they had to say please click here.
