Who we are

IBP: Home to Our Industry

As institutional representative for the oil and gas sector, we have been working for more than 60 years to foster a competitive, sustainable, ethical and socially responsible industry.

We are the Home to Our Industry and we work with non-partisan and transparent practices, seeking collaboration among industry stakeholders and creating value to all oil and gas chain, regulators and government.

In the regulatory and institutional areas, IBP speaks for the oil, gas and biofuels industry in forums and public meetings on industry regulation, taxation and oversight. Our essential role as a representative of the industry is widely recognized by regulators and various levels of government.

IBP works comprehensively across the oil, gas and biofuels value chain in an open and democratic environment, respecting different opinions and thoughts, working to reconcile interests to promote cooperation among industry players and their stakeholders and audiences.

The IBP’s technical committees are the basis of our intellectual capital, stimulating experience sharing, knowledge building and collaboration among representatives from the different industry segments.

We also have a network of approximately 1,300 experts who are active on technical committees. Our board and executive teams are executives from member companies who are also volunteers in driving the Institute’s efforts to foster a competitive industry.

The national and international current topics related to innovation, technology, management and sustainability are frequently discussed in all our activities, with the purpose of stimulating the development of the industry in the present and its vision of the future.

IBP is headquartered in downtown Rio de Janeiro – the city is known to be the national oil capital and the main tourist and cultural center of the country – and has 100 employees.

Our technical committees provide inputs into publications, research, standards and projects, and help to identify industry requirements to inform the organization of training programs and events.
