Welcome Message

I am pleased to invite you on behalf of my team members to please join us at Ithe third edition of the Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit & Exhibition holding from 5th to 7th April 2018 at Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. 


The Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit & Exhibition is Africa's unique platform for exchange of ideas and exploration of mutually beneficial opportunities by oil and gas community on the soil of Africa outside of our usual national meets.
At the first two editions, participants agreed there are quite a lot of potentials in Sub- Sahara Africa oil and gas that are yet untapped. Unlike other conferences where issues critically affecting Africa are glossed over, delegates had opportunities to discuss prospects ranging from marginal oil fields in Nigeria to licensing, current biding processes in Uganda and Tanzania. Issues relating to local content policy framework were explored while others shared best practise in stakeholder management at a session on working in partnership (governments, communities and NGOs). The icing on the cake was sharing what worked for Chevron Nigeria Limited in the area of managing license to operate as part of community relations. 


At the 2018 edition, focus will be on frontier exploration and sustainability of oil and gas business especially for national oil companies in Sub Sahara Africa. The summit will examine how the industry develops robust systems and processes that will enable it cope with changing challenges. The theme is; Oil and Gas Business: Prospects and Sustainability in Sub Sahara Africa". 


Accept our invitation to you and your organisation as we look forward to receiving you at your summit from 5th to 7th April 2018


Kind regards,
