Outgoing World Petroleum Council President Tor Fjaeran has been at the helm of the organisation during an exciting and, at times, turbulent 48-month period, taking in the global Coronavirus pandemic and culminating in the run-up to the 23rd World Petroleum Congress that opened yesterday.

With the congress postponed by one year due to the pandemic, the council has been able to spend some time adjusting strategies and has expanded its focus from being just about petroleum to encompass oil, gas and “all other energy resources and their products”.
