Where Billions of Dollars of Capex, Opex, Finance and Investment are Deployed to Develop Africa’s Future Energy Industry

The largest African Oil and Gas investment event, with a European accent

The 2017 Africa Oil and Gas Assembly will be our largest event ever hosted. The Oil and Gas Council Africa energy conference is recognised as the regions most influential corporate development, strategy, finance and investment gathering. It’s a catalyst for the growth and development of the Africa energy market. Nowhere else has access to the breadth and depth of capital pools and representatives from the financial services ecosystem.

In June 2017, Paris will once again take centre stage as the companies and individuals driving the regions industry. The Oil and Gas Council African conference is an exceptional, modern and fun experience, untethered from legacy, that helps foster new corporate development opportunities in Africa.

Great speakers and agenda content are critical to the success of the Oil and Gas council energy conference. In 2017, we will be welcoming over 80 speakers to Paris to participate in over 30 sessions in-front of 800 delegates. If you have a big announcement, a unique take on a burning industry issue, a case study or new research to share, then this is the oil and gas conference where news and deal flow get the markets attention.  

Pricing for a 2 day pass begins at £1795. For the full spectrum of 2017 Assembly prices and to book, click here.
