What is the MSGBC Basin Summit & Exhibition?
The MSGBC Basin Summit & Exhibition is a must-attend event for those interested in exploring the opportunities in one of Africa’s and the world’s most exciting petroleum systems. The Summit provides a fantastic opportunity for you to hear directly from regional governments and NOCs as they outline development strategies, regulatory updates and investment opportunities, alongside operators discussing E&P strategies and challenges in the region.
The 2017 Basin Summit & Exhibition was a great success with over 300 members of our network joined by ministers, government officials, industry regulators and NOCs from across the region. It was two days packed full of important announcements, valuable industry updates, insightful discussions and unique networking opportunities. A sincere thank you to all our partners, speakers and those who attended for making the summit so constructive and successful.
With all the region’s NOCs already confirmed to participate, we hope you will be able to join us in 2018.
