23rd WPC Welcomes Alex Epstein and Robert Bryce

The 23rd World Petroleum Congress Organizing Committee is pleased to welcome acclaimed authors Alex Epstein and Robert Bryce to the already-robust Congress program. Mr. Epstein and Mr. Bryce will share their thoughts and knowledge in the session titled, Perception of the Energy Industry: Creating A Future Vision. This moderated discussion will focus on what must be done to address perception issues by analyzing the value the industry brings to the world and its formidable role in energy transition and building a sustainable energy future.

“Alex Epstein and Robert Bryce bring insight into the benefits of designing innovative solutions for fossil fuel use in our society as well as perspectives on the future of energy, both themes at the heart of the Congress. We are delighted to have two prominent thought leaders on the program in December,” said Jeff Shellebarger, Chairman of the 23rd World Petroleum Congress Organizing Committee.


Mr. Epstein is the President and Founder of the Center for Industrial Process, a think-tank seeking to bring about new industrial revolution and offers a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement. He is also the author of The New York Times bestseller, “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels”, the highly regarded and widely praised book that analyzes the role energy plays in improving aspects of life, through economic and environmental benefits.

Covering energy, power, innovation, and politics for more than three decades, Mr. Bryce’s work has appeared in numerous respected publications. He is also the author of six books including his most recent one titled, “A Question of Power: Electricity and the Wealth of Nations” discussing the factors behind successful electrification. In addition, he is also the host of the, “Power Hungry Podcast” examining the energy industry, innovation, and more.

From December 5-9, the 23rd WPC will bring international ministers, CEOs, academia and other expert speakers to Houston, Texas to discuss the energy landscape as it relates to industry trends, innovative solutions and best practices shaping the future of energy. Drawing participation from key constituents influencing the global industry, the Congress provides leaders the platform to hold important, forward-looking discussions around solutions that will go beyond the conference.

Industry Focus: Sensor advances allow pipeline leak detection to take to the skies
-Doug Baer
Sustainability and green initiatives have always been laudable objectives, with mission statements around the world confirming commitments to lower emissions and energy consumption, and increase recyclability, to name a few.
Maintenance and Reliability: Prevent unplanned shutdowns for LNG liquefaction facilities
-Peter Zhang
Although an unplanned shutdown is an integrated part of the operational and safety management system of an operating plant, unplanned shutdowns for a modern LNG liquefaction operating facility often become some of the costliest events for the facility owner.
Regional Focus: Balancing Africa’s world-class LNG projects and the environment
-Shem Oirere
The construction of world-scale natural gas processing plants by three of Africa’s top natural gas producers has attracted scrutiny, despite efforts to commercialize the continent’s hydrocarbon resources and expand energy supply on the continent.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
