IP Week: Defining the industry’s role, delivering a low carbon future

Ip Week 800

Eleven Team Oil Trading, Shipping and Supply, Gas, Power and LNG, Eleven News...

This year’s IP week is taking place on 25 – 27 February 2020 at Intercontinental Park Lane, London.

As one of the biggest events in the energy sector, IP Week brings together over 1,500 industry professionals from over 50 countries, making this internationally renowned event the place to hear the latest news and updates, debate key issues, and network to form new partnerships.

IP Week 2020 will explore how the oil and gas industry can be a key player in delivering a low carbon future. Whilst oil and gas supplies remain an essential resource for now, the industry still needs to showcase the actions they are taking to transform how energy is provided to all parts of the world.

What organisations, technologies and operations are helping to shape the plan for a cleaner future? This event will bring together the most influential figures in the industry to outline their views, share future plans and explore how the innovation, technology and talent we have at our fingertips will bring about this transformation.

As Energy Institute President Steve Holliday FREng FEI, states: "we close our ears to science and society at our peril", but that "we won’t be able to manage the transition without the oil and gas industries playing a huge role too...they’ve got the capital, the intellectual and engineering capabilities to solve so many of these problems".
