IFP and the OAPEC jointly organize a regular international seminar dealing with world oil-related problems currently making headlines.
The 2008 seminar will focus on the gas headlines. Given ever-increasing energy demand, expected to rise by 60% by 2030, and bearing in mind the need to develop solutions that are less carbon-intensive and thereby help mitigate CO2 emissions and address climate change issues, gas is clearly a key component of the global energy mix.
Bringing the gas to consumers depends on addressing and solving a number of problems in the areas of exploration, production, processing, and transport, among others. The goal of the seminar will accordingly be a consistent and comprehensive review of the main challenges and the technical solutions that can be implemented to meet them.
The program is organized in 7 sessions:

IFP is a world-class public-sector research and training center, aimed at developing the technologies and materials of the future in fields of energy, transport and the environment. It provides public players and industry with innovative solutions for a smooth transition to the energies and materials of tomorrow – more efficient, more economical, cleaner and sustainable.
The OAPEC (Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries) was established in 1968 with the following major goals:
- to promote cooperation and close ties between the member countries in economic activities related to the oil industry;
- to determine ways of safeguarding their legitimate interests, both individual and collective, in the oil industry;
- to unite their efforts so as to ensure the flow of oil to consumer markets on equitable and reasonable terms;
- to create a favorable climate for the investment of capital and expertise in their petroleum industries.
Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syrian Arab Republic, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates are the 11 members of the OAPEC.
