ITE said it is hosting the 2017 edition of the globally recognised Africa Oil Week, the largest running oil and gas conference on the African continent, from the 23rd -27th October in Cape Town, South Africa.
Africa’s premier event is host to over 1,250 industry players from around the world, bringing together cross-continent multinationals and offering a content rich programme, a quality industry exhibition and five-star networking. Regarded for its high-level participation and onsite deal-flow, with sizeable in-room investor and finance potential, Africa Oil Week delivers exposure of Africa-wide state and private acreage opportunities, transaction and new venture assets and potential, exploration and production developments, and an overview of Africa’s hydrocarbon future.
Nowin its 24th year, Africa Oil Week, being held at the Cape Town Convention Centre, continues to provide the most trusted and reliable platform for governments, national oil companies, corporate players, independents and financiers, along with service and supply operators, to share deep insight and linchpin strategies and engage in meaningful debate and conversations set to drive and strengthen Africa’s rapidly evolving upstream industry.
Withover 160 speakers from the corporate and public sphere, this year’s event promises a programme designed around industry solutions that set the standard for adjusting business models to new demands. Experts will share strategies that enable the upstream industry to advance carefully, yet optimistically, as the investment environment improves, with companies pursuing asset deals, and oil price gains remain in place. Innovation, flexibility, capabilities, technology and reforms are the keywords of the new strategies being deployed to face the future of the upstream industry with confidence and Africa Oil Week provides opportunities for exploring them all.
Being held as part of this year’s event and strengthening its core offer are the 17th Africa Independents Forum (23rd Oct), the 24th Africa Upstream (24th-27th Oct), the 5th Africa Local Content Forum (23rd Oct) and the 5th Young Professionals in Oil, Gas & Energy session.
