Equatorial Guinea’s entry into OPEC, the passage, by the Nigerian Senate,of a transformational oil legislation and a more robust crude oil price than what prevailed in the last two years are some of the reasons organisers of the West African International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (WAIPEC), are assured of a larger gathering in the 2018 edition.
The summit will take place at the Eko Convention Centre, in Eko Hotel, in Lagos Nigeria.
“Nigeria, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Cameroon, with their hydrocarbon industries on the coast of the Atlantic in West Africa, have fared well in the past two quarters, relatively speaking”, says Sam Ojehonmon, an energy analyst focused on Subsaharan Africa. “Addax alone has net close to 25,000BOPD in Cameroon and the ease with which Shell sold its Gabonese assets points to confidence of the international markets in the country”, he explains. “These suggest that a West African Oil and Gas Summit can be fruitful in terms of market intelligence and networking”, Ojehonmo says.
