RNC WPC twice successfully organized World Petroleum Congresses: the 8th in 1971 and the 21st in 2014. Following the meeting of the World Petroleum Council (July 09, 2017g, Istanbul), the venue for the 6th Future Leaders Forum of the World Petroleum Council was chosen St. Petersburg.
As a result of the successful 21st WPC, a fund was set up to support socially important programs. In connection with this, in 2015 the Russian National Committee of the World Petroleum Council (RNC WPC) established a scholarship “Golden Legacy of the World Petroleum Council" (“Golden Legacy of WPC"), which aims to identify the most talented and successful students from all over Russia. The competition is held twice a year, and students from universities of the Russian Federation studying different branches of oil and gas take part in it.
