2017 West Africa Energy Assembly

350+ Senior executives from the E&P, energy, finance, investment and infrastructure sectors meet to explore the opportunities in and around the region.

A Major International Energy Investment Forum for West Africa
 In January 2017 we look forward to returning to Lagos, once again welcoming senior executives working in West Africa's upstream, midstream/LNG, power, offshore, finance, investment and petroleum services sectors. As the only oil and gas investment event taking place in Nigeria in 2017, this West Africa energy conference is once again set to be the highlight of the year. 

The West Africa Energy Assembly remains a must-attend energy event for thought leadership, market insight and high-end C-level networking.  Whether you are looking for farm in partners, farm out partners, capital investment, financing, advisory work, business partners, or simply want to learn about the opportunities in the sector and expand your business network, this West Africa oil conference is designed to deliver it all.

In 2017, we cover the key topics relevant to the full Energy value chain including:

  1. Strategies for success: How to come out on top in a low oil price environment
  2. The role of Government and NOCs in renegotiating fiscal regulation and incentivising investment
  3. How to attract local and international finance and investment
  4. Mitigating the impact of security threats and conflict
  5. Making the case for nearfield exploration: Examining successful exploration through 2016
  6. Overcoming the 3 biggest challenges in the Gas-to-Power market: A lack of affordable domestic gas, poor infrastructure and customer payments
  7. Working with alternative energies, including solar, to stabilise and secure the future of the Oil & Gas industry
