About the Conference

The next edition of the Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil & Gas Summit & Exhibition is scheduled to hold in Lagos, Nigeria from 5th - 7th April 2017with theme “Oil and Gas Business: Prospects and Sustainability in Sub Sahara Africa’’

The summit is being organized by Zenith Professional Training (ZPT), a firm with several years’ of building oil and gas capacity through industry specialized trainings in the oil and gas sector.
It is expected that the summit and exhibition will attract many key industry players from across Africa and beyond. The exhibition will provide a veritable opportunity for established oil and gas companies, government agencies, services providers, equipment manufacturers and new entries to interact and showcase their possibilities.

Africa is the last true oil and gas frontier with more than 4,200 oil and gas blocks identified. Almost half of these blocks are open, subject to force majeure or in the application phase.
More than 80% of the 1,300 blocks in North Africa are licensed, while in sub-Saharan Africa it is estimated that only about 30% of 2,900 blocks are licensed. In the sub-Saharan regions it is evident that many new opportunities still exist, especially for the exploration and production (E&P) companies that are willing to take risks.

The main objective of this summit therefore is to bring to fore those opportunities in Sub- Sahara oil and gas thus the theme “OIL AND GAS BUSINESS: PROSPECTS AND SUSTAINABILITY IN SUB SAHARA AFRICA’’
