Energy Capital & Power (ECP) is excited to announce that South Sudanese Minister of Petroleum, Hon. Puot Kang Chol, will participate as a Keynote Speaker at the fifth edition of the South Sudan Oil & Power (SSOP) conference in Juba, taking place on September 13-14, 2022.
In partnership with the Ministry of Petroleum, Ministry of Energy and Dams, and Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, SSOP 2022 represents the longest-running event organized by ECP and serves as the official meeting place for South Sudan’s oil, gas and power industries, uniting regional leaders, international financiers and national companies.
Hon. Minister Chol has played a pivotal role in the recent growth of South Sudan’s hydrocarbons sector, launching the country’s first licensing round in June 2021 and renewing engagement with leading International Oil Companies, including China National Petroleum Corporation, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Petronas and Nile Petroleum Corporation, among others, in an effort to drive exploration of South Sudan’s oil and gas acreage, of which 90% remains untapped.
“We are very excited to confirm Hon. Puot Kang Chol to this year’s event. South Sudan’s impressive energy developments, backed by the Ministry of Petroleum, invite a new era of stability and growth in which ECP is proud to be a part of,” says James Chester, ECP Senior Director.
Hon. Minister Chol extends an invitation to regional and international investors to attend and participate in SSOP 2022, with a view to financing and developing the country’s large-scale energy and infrastructure projects, alongside local stakeholders, government authorities and national oil companies. Dynamic partnership and investment opportunities will be on display during the event’s two days of networking, panel discussions and deal-making.
