WELCOME

A world class venue is also critical to a

successful Congress and the award winning

Vancouver Convention Center, located on

Vancouver’s waterfront with a dramatic

mountain backdrop, will provide unparalleled

facilities and hospitality.

Canada is known worldwide for our open

nature and friendly ways, our global outlook

and our savvy and progressive approach to the

production and consumption of energy. This is

an exciting time in the oil & gas industry, with

challenges and opportunities that are being

addressed innovatively by an emerging

generation with optimism, fueled by the open

exchange of ideas and ongoing dialogue.

With this spirit, we believe there is nowhere

better on our planet than Vancouver and

Canada for our industry to come together

in congress to talk about this future.

We are honoured to invite the world’s oil and

gas industry to assemble in Vancouver in 2020

and kindly request your support of our bid to

host the 23rd World Petroleum Congress.

Respectfully Yours,

//////////////////////////////////

On behalf of the Canadian

Association of the World Petroleum

Council (‘WPC Canada’), we are

deeply honoured to nominate the

beautiful and incredibly vibrant city

of Vancouver, British Columbia,

Canada to host the 23rd World

Petroleum Congress in 2020.

4

successful Congress starts with the

A strong support of a robust national oil

and gas sector. Canada is the fifth largest

oil and gas producer in the world. Our

nation has some of the largest remaining

oil and gas reserves on the planet and

enjoys one of the most open and active

investment markets.

The Canadian oil and gas industry

will be at the forefront of the 2020 WPC

Congress displaying some of the most

advanced technologies in the industry

and discussing the critical challenges

facing the global oil and gas industry

over the next decade.

The City of Vancouver itself is an emerging

energy center with modern LNG export facilities

along the coastline of the province of British

Columbia expected to be built within the

coming years.

Just a quick one hour flight from Vancouver is

Calgary, Alberta, the center of the Canadian oil

and gas industry and the host city of the very

successful 16th World Petroleum Congress in

2000. Here Canadian oil and gas companies are

headquartered and are ready to discuss

investment opportunities within Canada’s energy

sector. Technical tours of Canada’s Oil Sands

and shale gas facilities will also be a part of the

2020 WPC Congress in Canada.

If you have not visited Vancouver or other parts

of British Columbia, you will definitely be in for

a treat. Considered one of the top most livable

cities in the world, Vancouver is set in one of

the most majestic and breathtaking parts of

North America.

Its pristine coastline, nearby islands, coastal

mountains, including the internationally

recognized resort village of Whistler, and old

growth rain forests offer up many incredible

opportunities to explore and engage in

unique adventures.

Canada’s awe inspiring Rocky Mountains are

just a short trip away from Vancouver and

provide additional opportunities to experience

Canada’s natural wonders.

Warmer and more temperate than most

of the balance of Canada, expect summer

temperatures in the mid-20s Celsius, ideal for

a full range of activities. Within the city, there

are also many fascinating indoor and outdoor

attractions to visit including world-famous

Stanley Park, beautiful Grouse Mountain

and the fun atmosphere of Granville Island.

Council Canada

EXECUTIVE

SUMMARY

//////////////////////////////////

The World Petroleum Council is dedicated to the promotion of

sustainable management and use of the world’s petroleum resources.

In order to achieve success, the global oil & gas industry needs

to encourage continuous dialogue and thoughtful planning in an

environment that supports meaningful and respectful collaboration.

For these reasons, the Canadian Association of the World Petroleum

Council (‘WPC Canada’) believes that Vancouver is the perfect

destination to host the 23rd World Petroleum Congress in 2020,

as the Naturally Progressive choice.

6

On Canada’s west coast, Vancouver is a

shining example of what our country

offers to the world - a scenic, safe, secure

and ethnically diverse city that has hosted

some of the world’s most important

gatherings, including the 2010 Winter

Olympics where 2,600 athletes came

from over 82 nations, for 17 days of

record-breaking athletic performances.

The city itself is ranked the third most livable

in the world by the Economist Magazine,

and the award-winning conference centre -

the main gathering place for much of the

conference, is central to the city. Vancouver

is easy to get to, with so many direct flights

from around the world arriving to an

international airport has been voted the

best in North America for a record seven

years in a row.

Canada is the 5th largest oil & gas producer

in the world, and a member of key global

organizations like OECD and the G7. British

Columbia, the province that Vancouver calls

home, is an emerging energy center itself,

with new, modern LNG export facilities under

consideration. And Calgary, the heart of the

Canadian oil and gas industry and all its

corporateheadquarters, is a short one-hour

flight from Vancouver.

Your support of the Vancouver 2020

bid will also support plans to launch an

ambitious made-in-Canada legacy plan

for the benefit of all WPC members. This

legacy plan will be the platform to groom

a new generation of energy leaders, and

support the importance of Environmental

Stewardship, provide Education and

Training for a broad spectrum of participants

including Indigenous Peoples, cultivate

future industry leaders through targeted

Leadership Development, promote the

importance of developing emerging

Technology within Sustainability ambitions,

and support the goal of the World Petroleum

Council’s Legacy programs to benefit all

National Committees.

Vancouver looks forward to the opportunity

to welcome the world’s energy nations and

its leaders, to the 23rd World Petroleum

Congress in 2020, and show participants

why we believe we are the naturally

progressive choice.

VANCOUVER: TOP MEETING DESTINATION

8

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Vancouver is recognized

as one of North

America’s top meeting

destinations thanks to

an easily navigable

infrastructure and

state-of-the-art facilities

including the globally

lauded Vancouver

Convention Centre.

Vancouver has become

a mecca for planners,

delegates and visitors

seeking a breath of fresh air

alongside innovative venues,

inspiring surroundings and

scores of expertise. We’ve

hosted events ranging from

intimate meetings to the TED

Conference to the Olympics

– and we’re confident we’ll

make your event just as

successful and memorable.

VANCOUVER: A WELCOMING DESTINATION

10

Vancouver is truly a unique

destination for conferences

and meetings.

The city’s spectacular beauty sets it

apart and is complemented by the

nature-inspired design of the LEED

Platinum-certified Convention Centre.

What is not as obvious is the

microcosm created by three 5-star

hotels adjacent to the centre and

several 4-star properties within

easy walking distance.

Katherine McCartney,

TED Conference

Once our delegates arrived in

Vancouver they knew they were

going to experience something truly

special, exciting, and memorable.

They told us that everything had

exceeded their expectations, and

many wanted to repeat the whole

event all over again in Vancouver.

This city and its infrastructure

provided the perfect backdrop

for our organizing committee.

Dr. Harvey Lui,

World Congress of Dermatology

We’ve held our biennial GLOBE Series

events in Vancouver since 1990,

which hosts nearly 10,000 visitors

from 60 countries. Vancouver

continues to be an enormous draw for

our delegates given its easy access

from foreign markets (particularly Asia),

it’s beauty, climate, cleanliness and

reputation for safety. The cosmopolitan

nature of the city lends itself to

excellent food and shopping, and the

tourism infrastructure is superb.

We know that hosting the event in

Vancouver remains a key factor in

keeping delegates coming back, and

inspires new delegates to want to come.

Officer GLOBE Series

VANCOUVER: 6 REASONS TO MEET HERE

12

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

THE VANCOUVER CONVENTION CENTRE

Two-time winner of the International Association of Congress

Centres (AIPC) award for “World’s Best Convention Centre.”

The 466,500 square feet (43,340 square metres) facility is

built 40% over water, with floor-to-ceiling glass throughout to

treat guests to phenomenal harbour and mountain views.

LOCAL EXPERTISE AND INDUSTRY

Vancouver, already one of the most livable cities in the world,

has enacted a Greenest City action plan, a strategy for

staying on the leading edge of urban sustainability. The City

of Vancouver has committed to becoming a renewable city,

with 100% of its energy coming from renewable resources, by

2050. The energy sector has, and will continue to play a key

role in leveraging industry expertise to help the city achieve

these goals.

UNIFIED, SUPERIOR SERVICE

Vancouver is unlike any city that you’ve planned a meeting

in before. Our hospitality community is unified, meaning that

Tourism Vancouver along with hotels, venues and suppliers

work together seamlessly to make sure your experience in

our destination exceeds all expectations.

SPECTACULAR BY NATURE

Vancouver offers the winning combination of a modern,

diverse city and a stunning natural setting. Attendees will

love how easy it is to experience urban activities (such

as shopping, dining, and cultural attractions) and then to

explore mountaintops as well as pristine waterways in

the same day.

ACCESSIBILITY

Vancouver enjoys a reputation of being one of the most

accessible cities in the world. To get to Vancouver, there

are more than two dozen international flights in and out

of award-winning YVR every day, with over 75 bound for

the United States. In addition, Vancouver is considered

Canada’s most walkable city, supported by a light rail

transit system.

ACCOMMODATIONS

With 21 convention hotels downtown and meeting space

ranging from 2,000 to 51,000 square feet (185 to 4,700

square metres), meeting planners have many possibilities to

choose from. And with 13,000 hotel rooms in the city’s

downtown core, and 28,000 in Metro Vancouver, delegates

have plenty of choice as well, including three world-class

properties that connect to the Vancouver Convention Centre.

GPI rankings.

#3 IN LIVEABILITY

The latest findings of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s

(EIU) Global Liveability Ranking – which provides scores

for lifestyle challenges in 140 cities worldwide – places

Vancouver as the world’s #3 most liveable city.

#4 IN QUALITY OF LIVING

The Mercer Quality of Living Survey is conducted to help

governments and major companies place employees on

international assignments. The survey also identifies those

cities with the highest personal safety ranking based upon

internal stability, crime, effectiveness of law enforcement

and relationships with other countries. Vancouver is ranked

ANTICIPATING YOUR EVERY NEED

As the only two-time winner of the

International Association of Congress

Centres’ (AIPC) Apex Award for the “World’s

Best Conference Centre” in 2008 and 2002,

the Vancouver Convention Centre’s service

standards, facilities, project management and

technical capabilities are second to none.

Our entire team of experienced and friendly

professionals is dedicated to providing the

best possible service to ensure a memorable

and successful event.

When it comes to convention centres, we are

leading the way with the fastest connection

and technology offers of any other facility,

including connection speeds up to 1GB per

second. All of your technology requirements

are already on-site and part of our

infrastructure. In fact, we had the capacity

to accommodate the complex needs of the

world media when our facility served as the

Main Media Centre for the 2010 Olympic

and Paralympic Winter Games.

ANYTHING BUT CONVENTIONAL

We take great pride in our culinary expertise.

The food and the care with which it’s served

rival that of five-star restaurants, with

tantalizing West Coast Cuisine – a mélange

of the best ingredients, Asian influences

and imaginative pairing. Operating one of

Canada’s largest capacity kitchen spaces

with a unique ‘scratch’ kitchen philosophy,

we use only the freshest local and seasonal

ingredients. Taking full advantage of the

province’s award-winning wine industry,

we exclusively feature British Columbia’s

VQA quality wines.

PLANNER TESTIMONIALS

“Everything we need in a convention city –

restaurants, attractions, nightlife, culture – it’s

all wrapped up in Vancouver. And, without a

doubt, the Vancouver Convention Centre is

#1. There is no other convention centre in the

world that has the view that this one does.

It’s amazing and stunning.”

- Million Dollar Roundtable

“Service, Service, Service. In the 23 years

that I have run this meeting, this is BY FAR

the best service, friendliest team and

professional centre I’ve ever dealt with.

Thank you!!”

- Pediatric Academic Societies

FUNCTIONAL, BEAUTIFUL AND ‘GREEN’

It’s easy to think green at the Vancouver

Convention Centre. With our sustainable

practices, unique building features and

commitment to work closely with clients to

create sustainable events, we are one of

greenest convention centres in the world.

We have an extensive facility-wide recycling

program, which recovers nearly half the

total volume of waste generated, and have

hosted Vancouver’s first audited zero-waste

event. Our iconic West building has been

awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and

Environmental Design) Platinum certification,

making us the first convention centre in

the world to receive the highest level of

LEED designation.

The West building also features a unique

marine habitat, a sophisticated drainage and

water recovery system and a seawater

heating and cooling system. As well, our six

acre “living” roof (the largest in Canada and

the largest non-industrial living roof in

North-America) features more than 400,000

indigenous plants and grasses as well as

four beehives.

VANCOUVER: LOCAL FLAVOURS

Vancouver has one of the most celebrated culinary scenes in the world. Visitors

can look forward to indulging in the best tower of fresh seafood, the finest housemade

charcuterie, the most delicious taco truck, and the best of B.C. wines. The

city’s restaurants, wine bars, tasting rooms, cocktail dens, food trucks, farmer’s

markets and bakeries will be something WPC 2020 delegates will never forget.

30

Vancouver’s restaurants always

deliver – whether you’re looking

for a place to host your event

or restaurants to recommend

to your delegates. With great

restaurant neighbourhoods,

highly professional Destination

Management Companies and

the overall assistance from

Tourism Vancouver, many meeting

planners have held incredibly

successful dine-arounds for their

delegates. The opportunities await

your conference.

WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

“It’s a mix of really strong Asian and Pacific

Rim influence, but there’s also that whole

Northwest product-driven mentality that they

have in Portland, Seattle and San Francisco.

The kind of mentality among cooks and

diners that you get when you have a lot of

good ingredients around you.”

– Anthony Bourdain

“From grazing among food stalls in Granville

Island’s Public Market to sampling dim sum in

Chinatown, Vancouver is a foodie’s

fantasyland.” - USA Today

“This is Vancouver, where the culinary bar is

raised higher and the restaurants are more

trendsetting than anywhere in the United

States.” - Seattle Times

“The number of truly outstanding restaurants

in Vancouver is astonishing, and the prices

are ridiculously low when compared to other

food capitals...” - The New York Times

“Fusion is the operative word in restaurantrich

Vancouver, where Northwest meets

Japanese meets Indian meets Chinese.”

- National Geographic Traveler

23RD WPC: TECHNICAL TOUR PROGRAM

48

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

WPC-Canada intends to offer

a comprehensive technical tour

program featuring areas of

active investment and growth

in Canada’s petroleum industry.

Tours will be offered to Canada’s

oil sands region in northern

Alberta, as well as to its vast

shale resources in northern

British Columbia and western

Alberta. These tours will feature

developments of some of

Canada’s leading petroleum

producers, and will highlight the

rapid continuous improvement

in cost structures, resource

recovery, and environmental

performance being achieved

through the deployment of

cutting edge technologies.

OIL SANDS

Tours will be offered to the Fort McMurray

region of north eastern Alberta, where over

2 million barrels per day of production is

currently being achieved. The oil sands can

be recovered by two primary methods:

mining for the 20% of the resource less than

70 metres (200 feet) below the surface; and

in situ (Latin for “in place”) for the 80% of the

resource that lies deeper than 70 metres

below the surface.

North of Fort McMurray there are several

world scale mines that produce bitumen

from the oil sands, including mines operated

by Syncrude, Suncor, Shell, Canadian

Natural Resources and Imperial Resources.

This region experiences long summer days

with temperatures often above 30 degrees

Celsius, and very short winter days/long

winter nights with temperatures often

below 30 degrees Celsius. Construction,

maintenance and operating activities are

carried out around the clock every day

of the year despite the wide range of

weather conditions. Several of these

mines process the bitumen into synthetic

crude oil on site at world scale upgraders.

Tours will highlight:

• Regulatory requirements for development

and operations

• Resource quality, mine planning and

mining efficiency and technology

innovations to reduce costs

• Tailings management and mine

reclamation requirements

• Upgrading technologies, product

quality and product market dynamics

Where the oil sands are too deep to mine,

projects employ well based technologies to

mobilize the bitumen so it can be pumped

to the surface. Many of these projects

employ a technology call Steam Assisted

Gravity Drainage (SAGD), which uses two

parallel horizontal wells spaced five metres

above/below one another with horizontal

sections stretching up to a kilometre from

the well pad. Tours will highlight:

• The continuing evolution of reservoir

management to improve the efficiency of

steam delivery and emulsion production

• Multi-well pad design to minimize

surface footprints

• Drilling advances to improve accuracy

and reduce costs

• Technology innovations, including

the introduction of solvents to reduce

steam requirements

In both tours broader topics will be

addressed such as:

• Technology innovations to reduce

energy use and cost and improve

environmental performance

• Greenhouse gas emissions have been

reduced by 26% per barrel between

1990 and 2011

• Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance

(COSIA) where participating oil sands

producers share innovations in four

environmental priority areas – tailings,

water, land and greenhouse gasses.

COSIA companies have already shared

over 560 distinct technologies and

innovations that cost over $900

million to develop.

• Local stakeholder engagement strategies,

particularly those dealing with local

aboriginal stakeholders.

• Over $8 billion of revenue has been

earned by aboriginal companies through

working relationships with the oil sands

industry over a 14 year period, and over

1,700 aboriginal employees are in

permanent jobs in the oil sands industry.

SHALE RESOURCES

Canada has vast shale resources currently

being developed in western Alberta and

northern British Columbia. These areas are

in the foothills of Canada’s Rocky Mountains

with two of the primary plays being the

Duvernay and the Montney. A range of

companies are actively developing these

resources, from emerging independent

Canadian producers to large Canadian

based producers though super-majors

and national oil companies. Employing the

latest drilling, completion, and fracing

technologies these companies are

continuing to drive down costs, improve

environmental performance and improve

resource recovery. Much of the resource is

liquids rich natural gas, and in Canada there

is a high demand for condensate to use as

a diluent for bitumen produced in the oil

sands to achieve a viscosity to enable it to

be moved to market by pipeline, providing a

natural synergy between the two resource

development plays. Tours will highlight:

• Advances in drilling technologies,

including rig design and automation,

multi-hole well pads and reductions

in land use

• Advances in fracing technology

• Advances in surface processing

technology

• Mid-stream and pipeline infrastructure

• Product market developments

in North America

• Opportunities for Liquefied Natural Gas

(LNG) development on British Columbia’s

west coast and for petrochemical

development in Alberta to take full

advantage of the abundant resources.

WPC CANADA: BUILDING A LEGACY

54

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

WPC CANADA LEGACY FUNDS COMMITMENT

The global oil and gas industry

continues to change at a pace never

seen before as new technologies

open up new potential. The challenge

of operating successfully in a world of

lower energy commodity prices, often

in high cost environments continues.

Local communities and special

interest groups are engaged with

the oil and gas industry in a more

involved and complicated manner

than in the past. And, an ever

sharpening focus on carbon

emissions adds even more to the

challenges facing the oil and gas

industry around the world.

The WPC Canada believes that local communities

are partners in the development of oil and gas

resources and local communities should share in

the economic and social benefits associated with

resource development. Accordingly, the WPC

Canada intends to build a legacy program funded

by revenues from the 2020 WPC Congress to

support the WPC Canada’s local partners focused

on 4 key pillars:

• Environmental stewardship

• Education and Training including programs

focused on Indigenous Peoples

• Leadership Development promoting the

future leaders of the oil and gas industry

• Technology and Sustainability

And, the WPC Canada will also make an enhanced

contribution to the WPC international governing

body to support legacy programs around the

world benefitting the various National Committees

and their own local communities!

WPC CANADA: A DEMONSTRATED LEADER

56

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

THE HISTORY OF WORLD PETROLEUM

LEGACY IN CANADA

WPC Canada hosted the World Petroleum

Congress in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the

year 2000. At the conclusion of this

memorable event, the WPC Canada launched

the first ever WPC Legacy Program focused on

education when $250,000 (C$) was donated

to two provincial technical colleges. A further

$4.2mm (C$) was set aside in a new Millennium

Scholarship Foundation.

From 2002 to 2009 the Foundation awarded

1,600 scholarships of $3,000 each to

students across Canada pursuing studies

in Engineering, Environmental sciences,

International business, and Geology. The WPC

Millennium Scholarship Program was intended

to complement other programs operated by

the Government of Canada in support of

students studying in Canada. Hosting the

World Congress in 2000 also made it possible

to support an active and vibrant youth chapter

in Canada. As a consequence, the WPC

Canada and its own Future Leaders Committee

has been very active in promoting and

supporting many youth oriented programs

and successfully hosted the Future Leader’s

global Forum in Canada in 2015.

The legacy of the 2000 World petroleum

Congress has had a positive impact in the lives

of over 1600+ people throughout the nation.

Building on the WPC Canada’s track record of

prior Legacy success, the WPC Canada intends

to create an even more impactful Legacy for

others in Canada and around the World

through the Legacy program associated

with the 2020 WPC Congress!

THE LEGACY FOCUS FOR 2020

WPC Canada has identified 4 key strategic

pillars to focus on with the support of

Legacy funds:

Environmental Stewardship

• Legacy funds will be used to support

initiatives and research into environment

stewardship and how petroleum producers

and transporters can have the least

environmental impact on the world

around us.

Education and Training

• Legacy funds will be used to carry on and

enhance the success of the Legacy Program

from the WPC Congress in 2000. Much of

Canada’s oil and gas activities occur over,

on or near native lands. WPC Canada will

develop and support programs targeted at

providing industry related education and

training for indigenous peoples in an effort

to strengthen their partnership with the

energy industry.

Leadership Development

• Drawing new talent to the energy industry

is absolutely critical to the success of the

industry’s future. WPC Canada will devote

funds to promoting the energy industry to

youth, with a strong focus on attracting

female youth to the industry, and to the

development of the industry’s future leaders.

Technology and Sustainability

• Technology is changing rapidly within the

oil and gas industry as is the application of

technology. WPC Canada intends to support

and encourage the use of new technology

by supporting forums, technical papers, field

testing, and promoting the rapid changes

in the industry that can benefit all players.

The WPC Canada is also committed to

providing an enhanced contribution to

the WPC international governing body for

the benefit of all National Committees.

The international governing body has the

responsibility of supporting and building

the industry across the globe. WPC Canada

respects this commitment and will share legacy

funds with the international committee to

support the World Petroleum Council’s efforts

to share the benefits of a WPC Congress

with all members.

WPC CANADA – A DEMONSTRATED

LEADER IN BUILDING A LEGACY

The WPC Canada is excited at the prospect of

hosting the 2020 WPC Congress in Vancouver,

Canada where local communities will play a

prominent role in delivering the most efficient,

impactful and unforgettable Congress to date.

With your support, the WPC Canada will build

on its previous Legacy success and share that

success with more people than ever before

through innovative and thoughtful programs

that will benefit local communities in Canada

and around the world!
