Senegal launches first-ever Senegal Oil & Power Conference & Exhibition

AOP Senegal Senegal will host the first-ever Senegal Oil & Power Conference & Exhibition to be held in Dakar from 27-28 May 2020 in Dakar, Senegal

Organised by Africa Oil & Power and supported by the government of Senegal, Cos-Petrogaz, Petrosen and Senelec, the conference will be a vehicle to promote the new deepwater licensing round announced at the Africa Oil & Power Conference in Cape Town and for public-private partnerships spanning the value chain.

Guillaume Doane, CEO of Africa Oil & Power, said, “Senegal has quickly cemented its position as one of Africa’s hottest energy markets on the back of big offshore discoveries, game-changing projects and one of the most competitive business climates in the region. Through the Senegal Oil & Power Conference, we are excited to sustain the momentum created by the country’s leadership to herald a new era of investment in Senegal’s energy industry.”

As part of the Emerging Senegal Plan launched by President Macky Sall to make Senegal an emerging country by 2035, the energy sector has been established as a major pillar to drive economic growth and social inclusion. The conference will support the presidential vision by designing the event’s narrative to trigger the next local and international investment wave across the energy value chain.

Mamadou Faye, managing director of Petrosen, said, “With several world-class oil and gas discoveries, Senegal has built an excellent reputation globally in the energy industry. Through a new licensing round and investment drive, we are eager to capitalise on Senegal’s strong track record to attract new operators and exploration.”

The conference will highlight the growing importance of technology in the energy industry. Thanks to its young population and governmental commitment to developing a high-level technological readiness, the growth of energy and technology are inextricably connected.
