Returning to the United States for the first time in 30 years, the World Petroleum Congress is the oil and gas industry's most prestigious event. As the Energy Capital of the World, the City of Houston as well as the University of Houston and UH Energy has directed notable research and thought leadership toward addressing the energy transition, which is the prevailing focus of this four-day event as well as industry and government leaders from across the globe. Through the duration of the WPC, we will showcase UH Energy's efforts to drive and promote conversation, perspective shifts and innovations as we look toward a more sustainable future, further strengthening the University of Houston as the Energy University.
