Journey of the Drop 2017

'Journey of the Drop' explores the future of the oil and gas industry and examines the unique contribution the industry makes to society and economies across the globe. 

‘Journey of the Drop’ will show the reach and influence the oil and gas sector has on almost every aspect of daily life - from the importance it has for millions across the globe having little or no access to clean energy, to the latest innovations in exploration, extraction and production. The programme will also look at the diversity of the sector and the wide range of careers available within oil and gas. It will champion collaboration, celebrate innovation and encourage the exchange of ideas in order to meaningfully communicate the vital work the sector does.

Drawing upon ITN’s 60 year heritage and expertise in storytelling, we will look at the extraordinary scope of the oil and gas sector and how it affects the people in it. ‘Journey of the Drop’ will aim to increase understanding of the oil and gas industry to the wider public, as well as look at tools and solutions to assist in both upstream and downstream operations.
