The 6th OPEC International Seminar will underpin OPEC’s longstanding commitment to strive for a secure and stable international oil market by promoting cooperation and dialogue with stakeholders around the world.

OPEC has held numerous Seminars since 1969, covering various topical themes. But its first high-level International Seminar was held in 2001. Since then, the event has grown in size and prominence to become one of the premier gatherings on the world energy calendar.

HE Dr. Mohammed Bin Saleh Al-Sada, Qatar’s Minister of Energy and Industry, Alternate President of the OPEC Conference, 3 June 2015, Hofburg Palace, Vienna, Austria said that the last nine months or so have been particularly challenging for the oil industry. Crude oil prices lost half their value as crude oversupply and speculation combined to upset the relative stability seen in oil markets over the previous years. It has proved to be an especially difficult time for some of the industry’s main stakeholders, resulting in huge revenue and job losses and threatening investment in future production capacity.

He added: “looking at the oil market today, there are a number of reasons to feel more optimistic about the general situation going forward. The global economic recovery is showing encouraging signs, oil demand is improving. Indeed, going by current trends, there should be a more balanced market in the second half of the year.”
