16th International Oil Summit

16 April 2015

Paris, France

The International Oil Summit, first held in October 2000 is a conference organised each year in Paris by IFP Energies Nouvelles, the energy weekly Pétrostratégies, and IFP Training.

Since its inception, it has become one of the most important annual events in this field, facilitating the exchange of ideas and enabling the participants to share their assessments of current international situations and the future of the world oil market.

This year the overarching theme of the Summit was “Restoring profitability to the oil industry amidst the current environment of costs and prices.” Participants were also encouraged to consider the development of shale oil production in the US, the impact of “low” oil price on demand and on reserves, the effect on NOCs, and on the prospects for mergers and acquisitions. 

IEF Secretary General Aldo Flores was invited to participate in an IEA-IEF-OPEC session moderated by M. Olivier Appert, CEO, IFP Energies Nouvelles. Dr Flores’ presentation on “New forces at work in oil supply and demand: Trends, questions and outlook” is available for download below.
