Angola Oil & Gas 2019
Africa Oil & Power is proud to announce that it will organize the first Angola Oil & Gas 2019 conference, to be hosted June 4-6, 2019 in Luanda.
Officially endorsed by the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum of the Republic of Angola, the conference will be the elite energy event for one of Africa’s premier oil and gas markets. The conference will gather key governmental officials and C-level executives spanning the spectrum of the energy industry for a week of keynote presentations, moderated panel discussions, exhibitions, networking gatherings and investment facilitation. The event will put a premium on deal-making and relationship brokering as Angola aims to attract investment in all segments of the energy chain.
With a daily production of 1.6 million barrels of oil per day, Angola is the second largest oil producer in the African continent and a full member of OPEC since 2007. Under the new political leadership of H.E. João Manuel Gonçalves Lourenço, President of the Republic of Angola, and with oil prices stabilizing, Angola’s oil and gas industry, based mostly on its proven deep-offshore basin, becomes once again a highly attractive investment destination.
The conference will feature discussion themes on the following:
- The investment climate in Angola under the new leadership of H.E. President Lourenço and the Minister of Mineral Resources and Petroleum, H.E. Diamantino Pedro Azevedo.
- The role of the new National Oil and Gas Agency and the privatization of some Sonangol subsidiaries.
- Acquisition of new licenses and continued exploration and development of the offshore basins.
- And more
Registration for the first Angola Oil & Gas is now open. The conference takes place in Luanda, June 4-6 2019, register here.
