Despite historical energy resource exploration Pakistan is still to achieve self-sufficiency. Therefore Pakistan continues to promote its geology to attract the competitive exploration dollar internationally. The members of the vibrant energy industry in the country felt the need for instituting a forum of The Petroleum Club of Pakistan to serve as an open platform for the sharing of professional information. The PCP organizes meetings and seminars for sharing and promoting information of related knowledge and is headed by a President chosen for historical contributions to the industry in the country!
Petroleum Club of Pakistan provides a platform for professionals that was missing and was very much needed. The exchange of ideas and good communication is very healthy.
Petroleum Club of Pakistan is a much needed, integrated think tank platform for the experienced energy professionals to interact, share thoughts on important energy challenges and to come up with fact-based solutions, by following the principles of mutual respect, collective wisdom, and constructive thinking. The club will also contribute to educating the public on energy-related issues to overcome common misconceptions and prevent its negative impact.
On behalf of the Petroleum Club of Pakistan (PCP), my team and I welcome all our members and visitors to our web platform. PCP is a not-for-profit organization, our efforts are towards making Pakistan a leading country in the energy sector by strengthening the links between professionals of the Energy Sector of Pakistan through the power of networking, technology utilization, local research, human resource development, ancillary skills, and counseling. We provide our members with a professional platform to interactively discuss energy-related issues and to propose fact-based solutions that may be used as energy industry feedback for policy formulation. PCP also arranges workshops and talk shows to increase awareness on energy-related issues and the link between academia and the industry.
PCP is indeed a prestigious platform that is providing an opportunity to professionals from across the petroleum industry to exchange their views and contribute toward the betterment of our beloved country Pakistan. The thing which I admire the most about PCP, it has made a wealth of knowledge and wisdom accessible to emerging and young industry professionals from those who otherwise would have gone into hibernation post their retirement. Forward-looking, I foresee PCP tremendous role in improved inclusion and structured dissemination of knowledge providing discipline-based expert forums whereby industry and academia can equally benefit and effectively contribute in this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous petroleum business.
It is heartening to see the Petroleum Club of Pakistan (PCP) flourish in terms of its membership over the past few years. Now we have knowledge powerhouses representing the entire spectrum of the Petroleum and Energy industry in its fold. With an amalgam of young and highly experienced, seasoned professionals of this industry, it carries several thousand years of experience, PCP seems to be well poised to deliver on the very objectives that it was formed for. Being a front runner and a representative from the upstream petroleum sector, now I can say that PCP is getting closer to my vision of providing the best think tank for influencing key decisions by the policymakers, planners, and promulgators across all streams of oil & gas industry of Pakistan.
Petroleum Club of Pakistan is a great platform for debating the energy issues of Pakistan. With the thousands of years of experience present at the forum, issues can debated threadbare with across the board perspective incorporated in the outcome.
Petroleum Club is a very good medium to exchange views and ideas about what ails the Petroleum industry and suggestions on some out of the box solutions for the policymakers to see an alternative approach to what they've been doing. This will offer them something to think about. I have always felt that once we have really good Corporate Governance on both sides, in the industry and the regulators or shouldn't we call them facilitators, both ensure that decisions are taken primarily on merit and the Code of Corporate Governance is strictly followed a lot of the issues will be settled, slowly but surely. So here's to a meaningful discussion on this valuable forum.
It gives me immense pleasure in penning down to acknowledge that the creation of the Petroleum Club of Pakistan has been the most needed and long-awaited initiative which has united and brought industry professionals at one platform. The Club members’ life long experience and their wisdom reflected in intellectual discourse on most difficult industry issues are invaluable. Issuance of periodic hardcore advisory papers by PCP may provide guiding principles for the government and regulators in the formulation of policies and taking timely corrective measures in addressing the complex industry issues in these testing times and years to come. I am very hopeful and confident that life long experience and wisdom of the very experienced and committed members of PCP would not only strengthen the social and professional network, but it would also be able to truly act as “Think Tank” and provide timely advise or at least “Food for Thought” to the policymakers to address compelling issues faced by the industry with a view to ultimately achieve sustainable security of energy supplies in a competitive market environment. The success of the Petroleum Club of Pakistan is due to the active, timely and painstaking efforts being made by the Club team.
Establishment of Petroleum Club of Pakistan became a reality due to vision, inspiration and sincere efforts of members in general but of founder members in particular resulting in a rapid and even an unprecedented growth of membership. Every one has noticed a very enthusiastic participation of members in sharing the technical knowhow and industry information. I hope soon speaker series may also be initiated for dissemination and sharing of knowledge. Finally all the effort of members is focused to help the Country in meeting its energy requirements in an environtally safe, responsible and sustainable manner.
Formation of Petroleum Club Of Pakistan is an excellent Initiative and being a member i am thoroughly enjoying it. I would like to compliment Mr. Tahir Alam and Dr. Saeed Khan Jadoon for the wonderful initiative. The Daily news update is again an great idea. PCP is a very good forum for professional interaction and source of learning for the younger generation, as well as keeping the old vintage updated. I would strongly propose that the Government should officially accept it as a think tank group which can make a very useful contribution to policy making. Organisations like PPEPCA and OCAC, which have been there since ages were not able to do what PCP has achieved. It would have a greater impact if the strength of downstream professionals could be increased. PCP’s growth and success will be a source of professional pride. Keep it up Tahir Alam and good luck.
