With less than one month to go until regional energy leaders, global financiers and both public and private sector executives meet in Dakar for the MSGBC Oil, Gas and Power conference, Energy Capital and Power (ECP) and has also announced partnership with multinational energy market research firm Rystad Energy for the regionally focused event
As it explores the future of MSGBC energy under the theme, ‘The Future of Natural Gas: Growth Using Strategic Investment and Policymaking’, the partnership with Rystad Energy ensures a new standard of knowledge-sharing and insight, with the firm’s co-founder and head of analysis, Per Magnus Nysveen, having been confirmed as a speaker.
This year’s edition centres around the role natural gas plays in Africa, recognising how the resource has and will continue to transform the continent’s socioeconomic landscape. With large-scale developments currently underway across the MSGBC region – including the 15 tcf Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project, the 13 tcf BirAllah project, and the 20 tcf Yakaar-Teranga project – discussions will largely centre on the impact these developments will have on the region. At a time when the global energy landscape is in a constant state of flux, and international markets are increasing their interest in African gas, the conference aims to explore these trends while redefining the narrative on an African energy transition driven by gas.
In this regard, MSGBC 2022’s partnership with Rystad Energy will be key as the research firm will be providing valuable insight into evolving market trends, emerging data and upcoming developments across the African oil and gas industry.
ECP international conference director, Sandra Jeque, said, “This year’s edition of the conference is committed to expanding on topics such as the energy transition, natural gas and policymaking, and with its partnership with Rystad Energy, MSGBC 2022 is set to become the leading platform to discuss the future of MSGBC energy.”
Meanwhile, with over 25 years’ experience within the technology, risk management and venture business sectors, as well as expertise in areas including oil and gas upstream valuation, cost modelling and oil macro analyses, Nysveen will be coming to MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2022 to drive discussions on natural gas, Africa’s energy transition and global energy trends. As the region undergoes an energy sector transformation on the back of gas, he will provide key insights while addressing ongoing challenges and upcoming opportunities.
