160 Speakers for 2017 Africa Oil Week in October
By Dipo Olowookere
No fewer than 160 speakers from the corporate and public sphere will grace this year’s Africa Oil Week, which enters its 24th edition.
Experts will share strategies that enable the upstream industry to advance carefully, yet optimistically, as the investment environment improves, with companies pursuing asset deals, and oil price gains remain in place.
Innovation, flexibility, capabilities, technology and reforms are the keywords of the new strategies being deployed to face the future of the upstream industry with confidence and Africa Oil Week provides opportunities for exploring them all.
The Africa Oil Week is the world’s longest running oil and gas conference on the African continent and it is slated for October 23 -27 in Cape Town, South Africa.
Over 1,250 industry players from around the world are expected to attend the event, which brings together cross-continent multinationals and offering a content rich programme, a quality industry exhibition and five-star networking.
Regarded for its high-level participation and onsite deal-flow, with sizeable in-room investor and finance potential, Africa Oil Week delivers exposure of Africa-wide state and private acreage opportunities, transaction and new venture assets and potential, exploration and production developments, and an overview of Africa’s hydrocarbon future.
The event continues to provide the most trusted and reliable platform for governments, national oil companies, corporate players, independents and financiers, along with service and supply operators, to share deep insight and linchpin strategies and engage in meaningful debate and conversations set to drive and strengthen Africa’s rapidly evolving upstream industry.
