Why AOW for... Operators

Africa Oil Week is unique in the fact that it is the only platform in Africa that hosts 1,300+ global professionals from all the major stakeholders across the upstream value chain.

The fact that the summit is the only date in the calendar that can profess to hosting NOCs, IOCs and independents at C-Level status is the reason no other event can deliver the value Africa Oil Week does.

Over 5 days, Africa Oil Week hosts private meetings, 150 speakers and some 30 governments to transact on new exploration and production opportunities. The true value of Africa Oil Week is the deal making that happens both in designated meeting rooms or in the margins of the summit.

Whether small and mid-cap independents farming out opportunities or exclusive viewing of proportiery data with geo-service companies, Africa Oil Week is the only date in the diary you can see every key player in the African Oil, Gas and Energy space.

View data from some of the most exciting basins across the continent, listen to the most compelling presentations from small and mid-cap independents looking to farm out and network with individuals who you would not otherwise get to meet; Africa is your business and transaction platform for the year ahead.
Governments from Africa get the chance to network together - ministers can sit down and compare thoughts on the industry.
