Africa Oil Week: “Unrivalled Opportunities in the E&P Sector”

Africa Oil Week is the voice of E&P – the global platform for stimulating deals and transactions across the African Upstream. The event is now entering its 27th year, where we bring together governments, national and international oil companies, independents, investors, the G&G community and service providers.

AOW prides itself on offering unrivalled opportunities that drive investment and deal-making across the continent, thus shaping the future of Africa. What sets us apart from the competitors is the seniority of delegates. In 2019 we welcomed 26 global ministers, 400+ C-level delegates, as well as hundreds of SVPs and VPs of Africa, Exploration, New Ventures and more.

The Africa Oil Week conference provides 4 days of pioneering insights, from ministerial panels to strategic outlooks and sessions designed to drive investment into the African upstream. At the heart of the event is the exhibition, where companies from across the sector can showcase their offering.

Join us for this year’s event in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) at the Madinat Jumeirah 8-11 November 2021. Where you can expect extensive and varied networking opportunities, CPD certified content streams and an event full of business opportunities.

AOGS Energy Webinar Series

Theme: Energy Transition and Implications for Nigeria’s Economy – A Critical Assessment

Oil Majors, especially of the European extraction, are taking ambitious steps to commit to green energy targets and investments. According to the United States Energy Information Agency, EIA, the oil industry faces increasing demands to respond to the low carbon agenda. And leading the response are European companies like TOTAL SE, which in 2020 announced a $7b write-off in its Canadian “proved reserves” – that gold standard of value for oil companies. The action probably signaled early steps at transiting from an Oil Major to an Energy Major. With similar actions from Shell, BP, ENI, etc., it seems the energy transition train has literally left the station.

Is Nigeria’s 40 billion barrels proved oil reserves (or parts of), at risk of being written off someday to be replaced by green energy assets in the oil (sorry, energy) majors’ portfolio mix? Long shot?

Join the conversation at the AOGS Energy Webinar Series and see if and how the future of the Nigerian oil industry is likely to be re-calibrated and what it may mean for the economy and business. Sub-themes include:

  • Global Trends in Energy Transition
  • Regulatory framework on Net Zero Positions in the Oil and Gas Industry
  • Energy Transition and Nigeria’s Crude Oil Reserves Development Strategy
  • Local Content and Energy Transition Implications
  • Energy Transition and Nigeria’s Business & Economic Environment
  • Nigeria power sector in the face of Energy Transition
  • The impact of Energy Transition on the financial sector

Sub-Sahara Africa Energy Outlook 2021

 Explore what the year ahead may look like for SSA’s energy sector.

 The Sub-Saharan African energy industry as a subset of the Global Industry is also struggling with the realities of COVID-19, despite the exciting news of commencement of vaccination. Waking up from the nightmare of 2020, this year holds mixed expectations amid hopes of containment of the virus.

On the oil and gas front, against the recent OPEC+ collective agreement, Saudi Arabia announced a unilateral production cut of 1 mmbls, adding to prevailing uncertainties on oil price projections.  Biden’s Presidency is expected to amplify Europe’s and Asia’s acceleration of Renewables, raising existential concerns for Africa’s oil industry, in addition to contending with COVID-19.

Certainly, there is so much to contend with in the coming days, with respect to, not only the oil and gas and energy industry, but the general business climates of the sub-region. The need to critically look at the direction and impact of local policy variables in the face of these uncertainties cannot be sooner.

Against these backgrounds, AOGS Energy Resources and her Partners invite you to the Sub-Saharan African Energy Outlook 2021 Webinar on Wednesday, Jan 27, 2021 at 13.00 GMT+1.

Featuring an eminent panel of leaders, the session aims to make informed analyses of key drivers likely to shape the industry in the year ahead and offer critical scenarios and insights that benefit the region’s common destiny.

Areas to be covered include:

  • Global oil and non-oil events and their implications for Sub-Sahara African Energy sector
  • Key policy variables across the region
  • Oil & Gas projections in key countries – Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, etc
  • Impact of Renewables
