Africa Oil & Power 2017, held in Cape Town on June 5-7, 2017, delved into the most pressing issues affecting African energy markets with a strong lineup of 70 speakers and 400 delegates.

Speakers at AOP 2017 examined the sparks that are igniting a recovery in Africa’s energy sector and the strategies that oil and gas companies and governments are employing to succeed at a sustained low price point. Learn more about our theme for 2017, Catalysts for Change.

Panelists, made up of government officials, executives and industry experts, analyzed the outlook for frontier exploration; the changing environment of finance and private equity for energy projects; how public and private entities work together to press forward with energy infrastructure; and the importance of gas in building Africa’s power capacity.
