The Oil Council’s World Assembly is Europe's largest international conference and networking forum for senior oil and gas executives.  Recognised across the global energy, finance and investment communities as a must attend event, our 2013 event brings together our oil and natural gas partners and 1,300 industry leaders from across the upstream, midstream, banking, finance, technology and petroleum services sectors to London for high-end debate, discussion, business development and oil and gas presentations. Our Awards Dinner is Europe’s largest oil and gas awards dinner welcoming 1,000 executives. Both are widely recognised as two of the world’s best oil and gas events.
