The fifth Eastern Africa conference on oil and gas will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, on 28-30 April 2014 at the Intercontinental Hotel, the organisers, Global Pacific & Partners, announced last week.
The gathering is expected to provide new insights into the upstream opportunities, open acreage, bid rounds, new ventures, oil and gas investments, key upstream players, and corporate and government strategies, the organisers said, adding that this region of 15 countries covers onshore and offshore potential, from Eritrea to South Africa, including across the Mascerene islands.
Many observers are disappointed that the event will not probably mention the impact – if any – Africa’s oil and gas revenues is having on the people on the ground.

– Africa Oil Corp
– Anadarko Petroleum
