Additionally, the World Petroleum Congress 2011 has confirmed the support of over 50 companies, including some of the world's biggest brands such as partners and sponsors of the event. This includes international oil companies (IOCs) and the national oil companies of several countries, as well as multinational leaders in analytics, law, marketing and communication.

Mr. Issa Bin Shahin Al-Ghanim, Chairman of the Organizing Committee for the 20th WPC stated "The World Petroleum Congress being hosted in Doha is a great achievement for the State of Qatar and underscores the region's growing role in global energy. So, I would like to say that we represent the people of the region with great honour."

"These partners and sponsors are working closely with the Organizing Committee to take the message of the congress to the world. We are fortunate to have established long term relationships with many of our sponsors and plan to continue that trend as we get closer to the 20th WPC," added Mr. Al Ghanim.

This is the first time since its establishment in 1933 that the World Petroleum Congress will be hosted in the Middle East. This is the forum for the region's top energy stakeholders to showcase advancements across the range of their operations, as well as for representatives of the Middle East to prove their growing credentials in a highly competitive market.

The World Petroleum Council is the only international organization representing all aspects of the petroleum sector and was established in 1933, with the intent to promote the management of the world's petroleum resources for the benefit of mankind. The World petroleum Council's prime function is to catalyze and facilitate dialogue among leaders in the petroleum industry whether from within the region or outside the region concerning key technical, social and environmental management issues in order to seek solutions for those issues.

Headquartered in London, the World petroleum Concoil includes 66 member countries from around the world representing over 95% of global oil and gas production and consumption. Membership in the council is unique as it includes both OPEC and non-OPEC countries with representation of National Oil Companies (NOC's) as well as Independent Oil Companies (IOC's). Each country has a national committee made up from representatives of the oil and gas industry, academia and research institutions and government departments. Governing body is the Council consisting of representation from each of the national committees.
