A forum for innovative Oil & Gas exploration and production leaders in Africa

The global oil and gas industry is currently experiencing an influx of pain points. A perpetually increasing energy demand, fluctuating prices, rapidly depleting natural resources, and social and environmental concerns only tap the surface. The Euro Zone crisis and a lagging U.S. recovery following the global economic fallout are impacting oil and gas organizations worldwide, causing investors to look to emerging markets for opportunities in the coming years. As one of the most resource-rich destinations on earth, Africa has come under the spotlight.

In Africa, economic and political uncertainty on top of fluctuating energy prices and weak infrastructures have hindered growth in the past, but in recent years the commodities boom and increased investment in infrastructure have seen a resurgence of growth. Countries across the continent boast world-leading endowments of natural resources and as yet untapped potential, with new discoveries continually changing the continents industry landscape.

Recent onshore and offshore opportunities in Mozambique, Kenya and Tanzania are attracting the attention of foreign investors and sparking word of an oil and gas boom on the east coast. Ghana has emerged as an oil and gas destination with Enis recent high-quality discovery in partnership with oil trader Vitol, and Uganda has gotten attention as another promising new destination with recent discoveries yielding more oil than previously thought to exist in the country.

The potential is evident, but todays leading oil and gas executives in Africa must stay on top of emerging challenges and opportunities to remain competitive in the surging industry.

The Oil & Gas Summit Africa will bring together leading oil and gas industry executives from across the continent to confront and overcome current industry issues. This premier event will explore critical topics and trends, including, but not limited to, exploration technologies, reservoir characterization, production optimization, deepwater drilling, heavy oil, enhanced oil recovery, cost containment, acquiring skilled workers and health, safety and environmental risks.

The Oil & Gas Summit Africa will enable attending executives to network with peers and learn from each others experiences through engaging educational sessions conducted in a comfortable, yet focused business environment. The event agenda offers opportunities for critical exchanges through visionary Keynote Presentations, Executive Think Tanks, Thought Leadership workshops, Analyst Q&As and much more. Attendees will meet one-on-one with solution providers throughout the event to learn about critical products and services capable of solving organizational challenges.

A few of this years agenda topics:

  • Defining Opportunities and Creating Partnerships
  • Unconventional Plays
  • Advancements in Deepwater Operations
  • Wireless Technology and Opportunities in the Digital Oilfield
  • Engaging with Local Communities
  • Enhanced Oil Recovery

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to get African oil and gas industry issues out on the table, make your voice heard and collaborate with peers on real solutions for your organization.

I've already had follow up discussions with a couple of the vendors I met and I see promise for future business. The meetings were the perfect length of time and I learned a lot about some vendors I thought I knew. I was impressed by the event, it was very well organized and executed.


A very impressive event, the whole thing was first class. Assembling senior leadership is not an easy task. Kudos to your organization on such a successful event and my sincerest thanks for allowing me to be a part of it!

Coming to this conference, I was a little dubious. However this has turned out to be the highlight of the year (in events).
