KPC, TOGY renew communications agreement

Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and The Oil and Gas Year (TOGY) renewed the communications agreement signed last year between the two parties.

The agreement will see the TOGY Kuwait series of books and the TOGYiN platform report on the state-owned corporation, as it manages the nation’s hydrocarbon reserves, KPC said in a statement on Tuesday.

Both sides agreed that the TOGY Kuwait 2017 edition was a success and decided to extend the relationship. They also pledged to make this year’s edition a success, and build upon last year’s relationship, it added.

KPC noted that a key outcome of the agreement would be the TOGY Kuwait 2018 edition. The Kuwait 2018 edition will portray KPC and its subsidiaries’ strategic visions to drive the expansion and modernization of the Kuwaiti hydrocarbons industry. KPC’s 2040 strategic communications strategy focuses on external stakeholder engagement, which goes hand in hand with the TOGY Kuwait 2018 edition; given that, TOGY has a C-Suite level international readership. The signing underscores both parties’ ambition to further develop the international communications of a globally important oil player.

The Oil and Gas Year provides business intelligence, strategic communication and networking to the global energy industry. It is the leading oil and gas publication and covers more than 35 oil and gas markets worldwide and distributes to over 200 conferences in 101 countries. The agreement was signed by KPC Manager of Corporate Relations Jamal Al-Sanoosi and TOGY’s Country Director Jurian Steeghs.

The Kuwait 2017 edition included information on the performance of the energy field, investors index, interviews with senior officials in Kuwait’s oil sector and officials in foreign embassies in the country, discussions on Kuwait’s plans to develop its resources and the effect of unstable oil prices.

It also contained articles on diplomacy and politics, exploration and products, oilfield services, clean fuel projects and marine and logistics.
