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
300 senior executives from a dozen countries attended the inaugural West Africa Energy Assembly in December 2015 for two days of closed-door discussions, networking, hospitality, and business development.  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.

The West African Energy Assembly remains a must-attend 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, the West Africa Energy Assembly is designed to deliver it all.
