Global Pacific and Partners - Management Events

Global Pacific & Partners are independent management advisors in the upstream industry, covering global oil and gas-LNG.

We operate a global suite of top-quality annual management events on African, Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern, European and national oil companies, and provide high-level strategy research with seasoned advisory practice, allied to worldwide in-depth strategy briefings and international executive club networks with online services, including daily oil and gas news for oil and gas executives on six continents.

The senior partners (Dr Duncan Clarke, chairman and CEO, and Babette van Gessel, group managing director), both with long oil industry exposure, work closely with a professional, highly-dedicated international conference team who have deep industry knowledge, experience and diverse skills and capabilities, and operate from our offices in The Hague, Johannesburg and London.
