Investment in petroleum projects has been fostered in many low income countries. This investment creates opportunities for local enterprises to be involved in the variety of services needed at different stages of the project, from exploration to production up to the end user. The first part of the Africa Oil Gas and Mines side event will raise awareness of investment opportunities in the oil & gas services sector and highlight value added partnerships with host countries through case studies.

Elements for the debate

  • What opportunities exist in oil and gas field services to mitigate environmental impacts arising from exploration and production?
  • What partnerships can be formed with host countries in the execution of oil and gas projects?
  • How can Africa's gas production be integrated into the globalising gas market?
