The 6th Youth Forum of the World Petroleum Council – Future Leaders Forum worked in St. Petersburg on June 23-28, 2019. The Forum is the largest international platform for professional communication of young specialists in the oil and gas industry. The Forum was attended by more than 1300 representatives of the oil and gas industry from 62 countries.
The high professional level of the discussions was predetermined by the unique composition of the speakers — most of the 230 speakers have extensive practical experience in leading oil and gas companies or are eminent experts. Ministerial delegations from five countries arrived to communicate with young professionals.
Continuing the established tradition, youth technical sessions were included in the programme of the Future Leaders Forum. For the first time, the selection of young speakers was conducted as an open competition. 75 students and young professionals from different countries of the world, whose works were acknowledged as the best, received invitations to the Forum and made presentations at one of the nine youth technical sessions.
