Organised by dmg events Middle East and Africa and under the patronage of the Department of Energy of the Republic of South Africa, the event is set to provide in-depth analysis and an honest reflection of Africa’s energy landscape. In addition, the event provides an intensive tour across Africa, revealing insights on the issues confronting Africa’s future commercial, business and socio-economic trajectories.

Speaking on Africa’s hydrocarbon development, Niall Kramer, CEO at South African Oil and Gas Alliance (SAOGA), commented, “Growing a gas economy in South Africa and regionally is imperative. We need to do this to partner and to enable renewables but fundamentally to provide the catalyst for the sorely needed growth, business activity and jobs that give us the opportunities for inclusive growth.”

The wherewithal that oil and gas can bring is potentially large, but to know that we must explore for indigenous gas and import LNG. Policy attractiveness is certainly needed, as are regional partnerships.

“The biggest opportunity I see is the massive proven gas resources in Mozambique alongside South Africa as the largest industrial economy in Africa. My vision is the region becomes like the North Sea. But with good weather,” Kramer added.

The global energy industry has been experiencing a radical transformation in recent years. Replacing large-scale nuclear and fossil fuel power stations, the energy supply of the future will be secured by millions of decentralized renewable energy plants in combination with intelligent storage, distribution and consumption solutions for existing oil and gas resources.

The event is supported by numerous international industry associations including SAOGA, South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), Association for the Development of Energy in Africa (ADEA), Power Africa (a USAID initiative), Oil and Gas Safety Council (OGSC), Petroleum club of Romania, Nigerian Gas Association and CEDIGAZ.

Driving the conversation forward

As Sub-Saharan Africa charges towards low carbon energy future, the event is expected to provide valuable forums for the international oil, gas and future energy industry to debate the issues directly with Africa’s leaders. Projected to attract over 1,500 trade visitors, more than 50 exhibiting companies, 120 conference and technical speakers and 300 delegates, the three-day event intends to be a valuable platform for interactive networking and knowledge exchange.
