About Africa Oil Week

Africa Oil Week - Powering the Sustainable Future of the African Upstream.

Who are we?

Africa Oil Week is the voice of E&P – the global platform for stimulating deals and transactions across the African Upstream. Now entering its 28th year, the event brings together governments, national and international oil companies, independents, investors, the G&G community and service providers. AOW prides itself on offering unrivalled opportunities that drive investment and deal-making across the continent, thus shaping the future of Africa.


Who attends?

What sets AOW apart from the competition is the seniority of delegates. In 2021 we welcomed 45 Ministers and Government Leaders, 400+ C-level delegates, as well as hundreds of SVPs and VPs of Africa, Exploration, New Ventures and more. 

What happens at AOW?

The Africa Oil Week conference provides 4 days of pioneering insights, from ministerial panels to strategic outlooks and sessions designed to drive investment into the African upstream. At the heart of the event is the exhibition, where companies from across the sector can showcase their offering. 

Ask many of our veteran AOW delegates, however, and they will tell you that the extensive and varied networking opportunities are what keeps them coming back year after year.

"It's a pleasure for everybody to see that we can come together again, have open debates and discussions around how the future can develop,"
Mark Heine, CEO, Fugro
