CIEHC5 kickstarts tomorrow to explore energy transition in Congo

The Ministry of Hydrocarbons of the Republic of Congo and AME Trade Ltd have announced the fifth edition of the Congo’s International Conference & Exhibition on Hydrocarbons (CIEHC5), which will run until 2 December, 2022

Hosted at the International Conference Centre of Kintélé, Brazzaville, Congo, this edition’s theme is 'Congo’s energy transition: opportunities and challenges'. Last year, it focused on 'Developing hydrocarbon resources for economic diversification and regional integration', and drew foreign investments. Participants also endeavoured to seek a common ground between climate and business, discussed ways to mitigate flaring and more. 

CIEHC is a much-awaited event that unites public and private stakeholders in the country to explore its scope on the hydrocarbons front. Years of success has earned the show the reputation it enjoys today. “This conference is extremely important for the Republic of Congo and the entire sector in general as it allows us to discuss current legislation and regulations in our country but also in the sub-region. It also allows all of the partners to discuss and exchange on the problems of our sector, from upstream to downstream, to be able to pinpoint the various problems and to provide possible solutions that governments and oil companies can continue to exploit to find lasting solutions to develop our sector.” said Jean-Marc Thystere Tchicaya, Minister of Hydrocarbons, Republic of Congo.

The sponsors this year include SNPC, Petro Congo, Perenco Congo, Engineering Petroleum and Industries and Total Energies, among others.
