More About the Energy Seminar

The most original feature of the Oxford Energy Seminar is that it seeks a balance in the composition of the panel of speakers between nationals of petroleum exporting and importing countries, in order to cover various interests in the field of energy.

The international panel of speakers and discussants will include, in balanced proportions, public figures and expert authorities from:

  1. OPEC and OAPEC member countries and other oilexporting countries;
  2. the USA, Western Europe and Japan;
  3. developing countries;
  4. the academic world, leading consultancies and international organizations.

The Director, assisted by the Dean and the Assistant Director, will provide the necessary continuity by linking and summing-up major lectures and debates.

Participants are expected to have a good background knowledge and professional experience in the field of energy, to hold responsible posts and to enjoy excellent career prospects leading to top positions in their institutions.

In the interest of fruitful exchange and indepth study, the number of participants is limited to sixty-five.

The all-inclusive fee for the seminar is Pounds Sterling 6,250. This covers all tuition, residence at St Catherine's College, all meals including two banquets, receptions, a few organized social events, and the cost of the seminar documentation and study material. All participants must reside at St Catherine's College.

St Catherine's is one of the largest of the 38 colleges which comprise Oxford University. It is a mixed college for some 500 graduates and undergraduates in all disciplines. The present building, completed in 1964, was designed by the Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen. It is in a modern style and has been awarded the Bronze Medal of the RIBA.

The Oxford Energy Seminar forms part of the education and research that the college sponsors and accommodates during the vacation period.

Accommodation is provided in centrally heated individual rooms. All have private bathrooms and are equipped with direct dial telephone and tea and coffee making facilities.
