Africa Oil Week (AOW) an annual gathering of leading independent and corporate energy sector players from across Africa and the world, has announced a partnership with SuperReturn Africa, a leading private equity conference.
This partnership seeks to boost investment in Africa’s oil sector while linking financiers to like-minded players operating within the industry.
For operators across the continent, raising capital remains one of the biggest challenges.
Africa Oil Week, in partnership with SuperReturn Africa, will offer an enhanced environment for operators to meet prospective financial partners, ministers, senior government officials, as well as national and independent oil company executives to exchange ideas and network.
In celebration of their partnership, Africa Oil Week will be welcoming SuperReturn delegates to attend AOW on Thursday, 8th November 2018.
The day will kick off with a live panel debate on ‘Global Funding Strategies. Speakers confirmed for the panel will include Samaila Zubairu, President and CEO of the Africa Finance Corporation (AFC), Solomon Asamoah, CEO of the Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund and Paul McDade, CEO of Tullow Oil.
AOW will also host two breakout finance sessions addressing some of the key issues raised in the panel in greater detail, including the role of global finance in the African upstream and how to drive transactions in African infrastructure.
Through this partnership, AOW looks forward to welcoming the continent’s most active energy investors who will gain unrivalled access to the opportunities spread across Africa’s upstream oil and gas markets.
“We are really excited to announce this partnership with SuperReturn Africa. This partnership will allow us to continue to provide a business and intelligence transaction platform and meeting place for Africa’s upstream oil and gas markets,” commented Africa Oil Week, Conference Director, Paul Sinclair.
Africa Oil Week will take place at the CTICC in Cape Town, South Africa from the 5th to the 9th of November 2018.
