Ghana, Namibia, and Liberia will share their oil and gas developments in a series of dedicated roundtable discussions to showcase hydrocarbon potential and investment opportunities during Africa’s upstream oil and gas community from 16-17 September 2020.
In spite of the COVID-19 challenges, the oil and gas industry seems to be on an overall upturn. The exploration interest across the world is reviving and Africa’s hydrocarbon exploration activities are seeing an increased optimism.
African governments are adjusting to a new world order, for example by making positive amendments to their bid terms to attract investments into the development of their oil and gas resources, and an increased participation in virtual events in order to showcase their nation’s hydrocarbon prospectivity and potential.
At the Africa E&P Virtual Summit, a delegation of governments and industry leaders will hold three exclusive roundtable sessions on Liberia, Ghana and Namibia’s oil and gas future. Each country will be making announcements on the latest adjustments to any ongoing licensing round bid terms and insights on subsurface potential and exploration activity.
Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas will host a virtual roundtable discussion with senior stakeholders from Namibia’s oil and gas sector. Thought leaders and industry experts on Namibia’s promising hydrocarbon potential will discuss what priorities the government of Namibia and active oil and gas companies are focusing on in the immediate and long-term future.
Tullow Oil Ghana will be hosting an interactive roundtable session with senior stakeholders from Ghana’s oil and gas sector, including the exciting addition of Mohammed Amin Adam, PhD., deputy minister of energy for the Republic of Ghana. This session will discuss the priorities the government of Ghana and oil and gas companies should focus on over the next decade as the pandemic ebbs and the industry looks towards the energy transition.
A delegation from the Liberian government will present the latest adjustments to the Harper Basin License Round Bid Terms. The Liberia Petroleum Regulatory Authority (LPRA) and the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCOL) will discuss this latest investment opportunity from both a below and above-ground perspective of exploring the Harper Basin and demonstrate their extremely progressive approach to adjusting to the current COVID reality by lowering the entry barrier for oil and gas exploration offshore Liberia.
