OPEC’s Barkindo to discuss the MSGBC region’s hydrocarbon potential

OPEC secretary general HE Mohammed Barkindo has been confirmed as a speaker at the MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2021 Conference and Exhibition, taking place from 16-17 December at the Centre International de Conférence Abdou Diouf (CICAD) in Dakar, Senegal

Under the theme, A New Wave of Investment, the conference will feature a range of panel discussions on key topics such as regional cooperation in energy development, exploration opportunities, and gas monetisation strategies.

Representing one of Africa’s most esteemed oil and gas industry leaders, HE Barkindo has been outspoken about urging African oil-producing countries to continue developing their energy sector activities, with particular focus placed on designing policies, and legislative and regulatory frameworks to drive the large-scale development of oil and gas operations.

HE Barkindo is expected to discuss the MSGBC region’s hydrocarbon potential, various long-standing challenges – such as energy poverty and the energy transition – as well as opportunities for partnerships between national oil companies and international stakeholders to encourage investment and natural gas development in the region.

“We are delighted to have HE Mohammed Barkindo participate as a speaker at MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2021. OPEC’s efforts, which are aimed at boosting regional and global energy cooperation, are expected to turn a new page in oil-producing countries operating in the MSGBC Basin,” stated Sandra Jeque, ECP International Conference Director.

Focused on enhancing regional partnerships, spurring investment and development in the oil, gas, and power sectors, the MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2021 Conference and Exhibition will unite international stakeholders with African opportunities, serving as a growth-oriented platform for Africa’s energy sector.
