Africa Oil & Power (AOP) 2019 has been designated the official energy event of the South African Department of Energy. To be held October 9 to 11 at Cape Town’s CTICC 1, the event will address urgent issues in Africa’s development, including the expansion of upstream oil exploration in new areas; balancing the needs of Africa’s oil producing and consuming countries; the role of gas-to-power in lighting Africa; the need to innovate in the power sector, including renewables; and the importance of using oil and gas as a lightning rod to spur growth and economic development.

Africa Oil & Power will focus on new developments in South Africa’s oil and gas and power sectors, including in-depth discussions around the Brulpadda gas find, new exploration, downstream projects, and the renewable energy Independent Power Producer programme. Oil and gas licensing rounds and investment roadshows for Africa’s most prominent upstream players and frontier markets, such as Angola, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Senegal, Sudan and South Sudan, will also be featured at the event.

“We are very honoured to have been selected by the government of South Africa as the official partner. This is the most exciting time in the history of South Africa’s energy sector, with a significant offshore oil discovery and a historic IPP program that create a ton of promise for the industry. AOP will be the meeting place for Africa’s top government officials, global investors and leading executives to get deals done and continue moving the continent forward,” says Guillaume Doane, the CEO of Africa Oil & Power.

Conference sponsors include Tullow Oil, Noble Energy, Kosmos Energy, Schlumberger, Marathon Oil, EG Ronda 2019, Centurion Law Group, GE Baker Hughes, Trident Energy, GEPetrol, Sonagas, Hexagon, NALCO Champion and Subsea 7. Keynote speaker Jeff Radebe, South African Minister of Energy, will be joined by Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima, Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons in Equatorial Guinea; Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, Minister of Petroleum in South Sudan; and Mahaman Laouan Gaya, Secretary General of APPO, among many others.
