Houston Mayor Applauds Turkey's Hosting of WPC

By Ebru Sengul, ISTANBUL, AA - Turkey has done an excellent job in hosting the 22nd World Petroleum Congress (WPC), Sylvester Turner, the mayor of the U.S. city of Houston, Texas, told Anadolu Agency on Thursday. Speaking exclusively to the agency, the Congress' global communication partner on its sidelines, Turner hailed Turkey's hospitality throughout the Congress. "The Turkish national organizing committee has moved the World Petroleum Congress forward. I have nothing but praise for all the representatives. They have set the bar very high for Houston for hosting the Congress in 2020," he asserted. Responding to the question of the U.S.' future policy on shale gas production, Turner said that susceptibility of the industry is linked to fluctuating oil prices and factors leading to price formation.
