Institute Brazilian Petroleum (IBP)

Rio Oil & Gas Expo and Conference


The Rio Oil & Gas Expo and Conference, organized by IBP – Brazilian Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Institute, is the largest oil and gas event in Latin America, held every two years at Riocentro Convention Center in Rio de Janeiro . Since its first edition in 1982, the event has been collaborating in the consolidation of Rio de Janeiro as “Brazil’s oil capital”, since the state concentrates 80% of country’s production and 50% of gas production. Its magnitude expresses the strength of our industry and makes it an important tool for different agents that act directly or indirectly in the industry to promote their products and services, as well as expose and defend their theses and interests.

Event Type:
Oct. 24-27, 2016

For this year’s edition, scheduled for the period 24-27 October, at Riocentro, we are planning new content and formats for the Exhibition and Congress.

With the motto: Paths to a competitive oil industry, Congress will foster debate on oil and gas industry main issues in this current scenario of new prices and disruptive technologies and also a national economic crisis.

We will still count on the participation of companies of all areas in the production chain, ensuring greater legitimacy and representativeness in the planned discussions.
