Countdown to Upstream West Africa 2017

Upstream West Africa Summit 2017, 29th to the 31st March, Lagos, Nigeria


“Discovery, Development & Maximising Deepwater Assets in West Africa”

In March 2017, Lagos, Nigeria will play host to West Africa’s No.1 Business to Business Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region.

The prolific region of West Africa boasted the two largest oil & gas discoveries in the last 24 months, with Cairn’s play opener in Senegal & successful Appraisal campaign and Kosmos’ world-class discovery in Mauritania, combined with new licensing rounds and the development programmes in Ghana with ENI’s OCTP project and Tullow’s extension of the Jubilee the full lifecycle of Upstream stakeholders in the region will be set for a busy time in 2017.

There is estimated to be at least another 100 billion barrels just waiting to be discovered. This is why the Upstream West Africa Summit 2017 is such an important event to help with the Discovery, Development & Maximising Deepwater Assets in West Africa.

West Africa’s key oil producing countries which are expected to continue to list among those countries whose economies are expanding at the fastest rate on the planet with over 500 oil companies exploring for natural resources on the continent and considering Africa’s proven oil reserves have grown by nearly 120 per cent in the past 30 years, from 57 billion barrels in 1980 to 124 billion barrels in 2012 that is no surprise.

All Oil and Gas Companies will be looking toward the next big discovery: NNPC, DPR, PetroCI, Cairn Energy, Kosmos Energy, Foxtrot International, Addax Petroleum, GNPC, Hess, Tullow Oil, SNEPCO, Exxon Mobil, Statoil, Chevron, Total E&P Nigeria, Oando, Ophir Energy, African Petroleum and many more.
