About The Oil & Gas Council

The Oil & Gas Council is the largest and most influential network of oil and gas executives in the world. We connect oil and gas executives, and in turn their companies, to each other and to their partners in the services, finance, government and investment worlds.

Our network spans the global oil and gas value chain and comprises Members (individuals connecting into our network) and Partners (companies connecting into our network to promote themselves regionally and/or globally). We focus on the business dynamics of oil and gas; the pioneers, partnerships, strategies, financings, transactions, joint ventures, opex and capex that determine the future direction of the industry and shape tomorrow’s energy landscape.

Our network of Members and Partners includes upstream, LNG/midstream, downstream and oilfield services leaders, as well as, recognised energy experts and business leaders from investment banks, law firms, management consultancies, commodity trading firms, advisory boutiques, investment houses, technology providers, EPC contractors and government ministries/regulators. 6,000+ executives from 100+ countries attend our meetings each year. We bring these senior executives together to facilitate new investment, encourage business development, share best practice, guarantee peer-to-peer networking, offer new industry insight, showcase excellence and promote thought leadership across the wider industry.
