The Dewhurst Award is presented by the President of the WPC to an inspirational leader who has made an exceptional impact on the global oil, gas, and energy industry and has demonstrated unusually high achievements over their lifetime. With these accomplishments, the individual is asked to deliver the Dewhurst Lecture at the World Petroleum Congress.
