Nairobi hosts three-day forum on oil and gas

The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) is all set to host the seventh Oil and Gas Africa Expo in Nairobi from 29-31 May 2018, focusing on the international trade opportunities of Africa’s oil and gas value chain

Organised by Expogroup, the exhibition will attract major oil and gas players from across the globe to explore more potential in the region.

The conference is in line with the Kenyan government’s ambitious aim to explore more potential in the region, as oil discoveries in Uganda and Kenya and gas deposits found off Tanzania and Mozambique have turned east Africa into a hot spot for hydrocarbon exploration.

Trade visitors from all over East and Central Africa are being invited directly as well as in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique and Congo. Though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighbouring countries.

Some of the companies exhibiting during the conference include Delta Pipe and Tube Trading LLC, AIV Europe Ltd. Cable Depot FZCO, Hydro Drilling SRL, Ruhrpumpen and LALIZAS.

Duncan Njage, regional marketing director at Exposure Events and Publication, said, “As the mediators of the economic development in East Africa, we are extremely excited that our business community and relevant stakeholders are now taking full advantage of such platforms created for their growth opportunities through their active participation.”
