Fuelling the future of African energy

The leading business intelligence and deal-making platform for Africa's oil and gas sector


At Africa Oil Week our mandate remains the same – Africa is at our core and the event will continue to stimulate upstream deals and transactions, drive investments into African projects and facilitate new partnerships and networking opportunities for the African upstream.

This year’s event will be held at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai due to legal restrictions preventing events from happening in Cape Town. The 2022 event will return to CTICC in Cape Town for which we have signed a 3-year deal.

We hope you can join us and the hundreds of brands who have already confirmed their place.
