23rd Africa Oil Week / Africa Upstream

Celebrating our 200th oil and gas event in, on and around Africa
Global Pacific & Partners with ITE Group will host the 23rd Annual Africa Oil Week/Africa Upstream 2016 Conference (31st October- 4th November 2016), at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, South Africa, and we invite your support and participation to join us.

This landmark Africa Oil Week-2016 event will again showcase Africa’s Governments, National Oil Companies, Licensing Agencies and corporate oil/gas players shaping the Continent’s future – in exploration and production/development, across new frontiers and established basins; onshore in the Rifts and offshore in the shelf and deep-water.

The 23rd Africa Oil Week-2016 provides the most-trusted and unique platform worldwide on Africa’s hydrocarbon industry, portraying five days of senior-level executive insight, with rich-content on corporate strategies and portfolio, exposure of Africa-wide state and/or private open and tradeable acreage opportunity for securing new venture assets and finance/investment opportunities.  With transaction potential for farm-ins and deal-flow, with extensive and unrivalled management networking.

This year’s Conference Program with its high-quality allied Exhibition highlights Africa’s changing upstream landscape, super-majors and independents from around the world engaged in Africa, the expanding Africa-wide gas-LNG and energy game, emerging unconventional ventures in shale and diverse hydrocarbons, the fast-growing class of “Born in Africa” companies, Africa’s state oil firms and foreign national oil companies, leading exploration technologies, breaking geoscience/technical ideas, local content policies, oil/gas finance and investment players, plus Young Professionals in Africa, with plenary debate and critical discourse on Africa’s oil and gas future – these elements together now shaping Africa’s vast hydrocarbon game, reserve growth, development and production trends, and with the service and supply industry spectrum deploying state-of-art E&P technologies to build the future for the oil/gas/energy industries from Cape-to-Cairo.

We are pleased to announce that CNBC-Africa is now associated with the 23rd Africa Oil Week 2016 as Exclusive Live TV Broadcast Partner, and will be conducting live interviews with executives and hosting Plenary Panel Debates on the Program within the Africa Oil Week, and streamed across sub-Saharan Africa.
