With new export projects being built in Mozambique, Mauritania, Senegal, Nigeria and Tanzania, African nations are set for an unprecedented boom in gas exports. But previous export projects have struggled to stimulate growth for gas demand on the continent. This paper will explore how the industry can change that this time round. We will look at how governments and upstream oil companies, can work together to facilitate a positive environment for gas intensive industries such as fertiliser, chemicals, and gas to liquids to invest in the country.

We will look at how governments and upstream oil companies, can work together to facilitate a positive environment for gas intensive industries such as fertiliser, chemicals, and gas to liquids to invest in the country.

  • What does “good” look like in terms of local content policies and strategies?
  • What are the specific distortions (economic, governance, ethics and compliance) caused by poorly designed LC requirements - what are the mitigation measures?
  • Are there always trade-offs between local content and cost management?
  • How can we measure the impact of local content beyond just hitting targets?
  • Can the energy sector be a “catalyst” for growth?

The ability for Governments and energy companies to effectively leverage their supply chains is key to delivering on local content and economic development expectations. In this session, we invite suppliers to discuss what worked and didn’t work in the context of contracting and local content delivery. Key questions to be addressed in this session include:
  • What advice and lessons learned can suppliers offer to Government and energy companies in terms of effective contracting strategies and approaches to local content delivery - both in terms of worked well and what didn’t?
  • What specific initiatives did government and / or energy companies do which were particularly effective in helping suppliers prepare for delivering on local content expectations?
  • Does local content delivery always come at a financial cost and if so, are there ways to reduce this cost, can anything be done about it?
  • Will suppliers deliver on LC ambitions regardless of whether it’s built into Government hard, legal requirements, the ITT, and the contract itself?
  • What quantitative and qualitative ways can we measure and report on impact beyond just $ spend?

The definition of local content has shifted from traditional “target setting” to a broader concept of creating more in-country or shared value. Is there anything that can be done to both service the existing needs of the O&G sector while also preparing workers and suppliers for future skills needs? Panelists will debate the following questions: 
  • How does the energy sector prepare its workforce for future skills needs and how important will these skills be in the face of the energy transition?
  • How can we ensure a better connect between vocational skills for oil and gas? Which programs are most effective for training energy workers?
  • Considering the narrow set of relevant jobs and insecurity around oil and gas projects, how can we create self-sustainable vocational training initiatives?
  • Should energy companies focus more on transferable skills which support the wider economy as opposed to its own sector?
