The Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit & Exhibition is Africa's unique platform for exchange of ideas and exploration of mutually beneficial opportunities by oil, gas and power sectors, it holds annually on the soil of Africa outside of our usual national meets.
Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria is a well looked after and very safe city to do business and relax, the choice of Abuja was influenced by the need to have real decision makers and government leaders in attendance to facilitate investor relations and, there is always plenty of places of interests and good meals catering to large numbers of international visitors around Abuja Central Business District.
At earlier editions of the summit, participants agreed that are yet untapped potentials in Sub- Sahara Africa Oil and Gas. Unlike other conferences where issues critically affecting Africa are not at the top of the agenda, delegates had opportunities to discuss prospects ranging from marginal oil fields in Nigeria to licensing, current biding processes in Uganda and Tanzania. Issues relating to local content policy framework were explored while others shared best practises in stakeholder management. The icing on the cake were sharing what worked for Chevron Nigeria Limited in the area of managing license to operate as part of community relations and value chain investment opportunities in East Africa.
