NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 5 – Over 500 senior oil and gas executives are expected to attend the East Africa Oil & Gas Summit & Exhibition (EAOGS 2020) when it returns to Nairobi from 18-19 March 2020.

The event, which is the largest of its kind in East Africa and officially supported by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining, Kenya, will once again provide the platform for ministries and national oil companies to come together and engage with international and local companies and investors to examine the hugely significant opportunities present across the region.

Now in its sixth edition and with the backing of over 400 companies over the years, EAOGS 2020 will feature over 35 high level speakers including ministry officials, senior executives and industry experts from national oil companies (NOCs), international oil companies (IOCs), financial institutions, government authorities and embassies, service companies and industry associations on a programme that places Kenya at the hub of the sector for East Africa.

It will examine the key topics that are affecting the region’s rapidly advancing oil and gas industry, including: opportunities and the sector’s progress, development and challenges going forward, new markets and an update on licensing rounds, regulation in the oil and gas sector, technology and new innovations and financing and servicing the sector.

In addition to the conference programme, the EAOGS 2020 exhibition will give local and international organisations the opportunity to network with everyone they need to meet for their business; new and existing customers, partners and product users and buyers who are all looking for products and services.

Charles Kahuthu, Regional Coordinator and CEO of the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (EACCIA), co-organisers of the event commented; “The scope, scale and spread of current and future oil and gas infrastructure development projects in East Africa is positioning the region as a hotbed of oil and gas exploration, investment and development.

“EAOGS is widely established as the largest and most relevant meeting place for all of the key players at the heart of this activity, incorporating major participation from hosts Kenya, alongside official delegations from Ethiopia, Mozambique, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zanzibar – all coming together to showcase the commercial opportunities throughout the region,” he added.
