The WPC is committed to application of scientific advancements in oil and gas industries, to technology transfer and to the use of the world’s petroleum (oil and gas) resources for the benefit of all.

The WPC includes both OPEC and Non-OPEC countries with thus bringing together national oil companies (NOC’s) and independent oil companies (IOC’s). Each country has a national committee consisting of representatives of the oil and gas industry, academic and research institutions and government departments. The Council consisting of representatives of each of the country national committees is the superior body. The Council consisting of representatives from each of the country national committees is the governing body of the WPC.
