London, the United Kingdom capital, will this month host a vital oil and gas summit meant to, among others, enhance the exposure of Africa’s upstream industry.
This includes the sector’s exploration and development.
Issues including crude oil and financial markets, engaging equity financiers, banks, private equity and investors, supply industry parties, as well as transaction advisors are set to be debated at the event, which will also be attended by specialised Africa’s analysts and geoscience firms.
The 14th Africa Independents Forum 2016, as the gathering is called, will take place on 25-26 May 2016 at the luxury Waldorf Hilton, and it will be hosted by the Global Pacific & Partners / ITE Group Plc.
Africa represents a lucrative market where quite a number of international oil and gas companies operate amid political instability, state corruption, human rights violations and extreme poverty.
Recent oil and gas discoveries have generated a huge interest from oil investors, who are keen to get a slice of the pie in the African Eldorado
Alongside and within the 14th Africa Independents Forum 2016, the following events will also be hosted: the 75th PetroAfricanus Club (guest speaker Australia’s Phil Loader), the 6th Global Women Petroleum & Energy Club Luncheon (guest speaker UK’s Irini Katsiani Hughes), the 4th Africa’s Hydrocarbon Arguments Discourse, among others.
This unique forum showcases leading independent companies with acreage and portfolio assets held in the Gulf of Guinea, Northwest Africa, Maghreb-North Africa, Central Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa, as well as in landlocked and littoral frontier states, the organisers said.
