From 26 to 28 March, the Nairobi InterContinental Hotel in Kenya will host the third Eastern African Oil, Gas & Energy Conference.
The conference showcases the oil, gas and energy industries from the region, which includes countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda Sudan, Ethiopia and Madagascar, among others. These countries play an increasingly important role in Africa’s growing economy and its ever-expanding energy markets.
The summit will look at the corporate players in the private sector and the state-owned enterprises that are involved in the oil, gas and energy industry. Guests will include various company representatives, CEOs and COOs, government and industry policymakers who play vitally important roles as the need for energy in Africa increases each year.
Included on the list of keynote speakers for the three-day conference are the likes of Teklehaimanot Debretsion, director of the Hydrocarbon Division of Eritrea’s Ministry of Energy and Mines; Robin Vela, the Chief Executive Officer of Sacoil Holdings Limited; Joseph Pili Pili Mawezi, the Secretary General of Hydrocarbons of the DRC’s Ministry of Hydrocarbons; Galib Virani, the Associate Director of Afren; and Alec Robinson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Lion Petroleum Corporation.
On the agenda for discussion will be:
- Government policies
- State interventions in the energy market
- State energy companies
- Private energy investments and interests
- Corporate portfolio and strategies
- Competition and regulation
- Inter-fuel issues
- Product pricing, and
- Taxation and the financing of non-hydrocarbon ventures.
All of these play a crucial role in the future of this industry, not only in Eastern Africa but in the rest of the world. The event boats an exhibition centre, where enterprises will be able to showcase new products, services and theories in the energy sector. And, of course, networking with industry professionals is an ever-present reality at the event.
There will be a special mini-summit before the main conference as an added plus. It will be hosted by Dr Duncan Clarke, who is the leading authority of natural energy reserves on the African continent, as well as author of the book Crude Continent: The struggle For Africa’s Oil Prize, which has become a textbook for the industry.
