Africa Oil Week: where African oil and gas meets

Africa Oil Week is the meeting place for Africa’s upstream oil and gas markets.
The event brings together governments, national oil companies, investors, corporate players, independents and financiers – giving them a place to network, discuss and share knowledge.

Africa Oil Week attracts the highest quality speakers. Sessions are headed by top figures in the sector, including ministers, heads of NOCs, leading scientists and CEOs from major and independent companies.

Why choose Africa Oil Week?


150 world-class speakers

Africa Oil Week's speakers represent the cream of the sector - from Ministers, Presidents and CEOs to futurists and thought leaders, from leading geoscientists to financial deal-makers.


9 government ministers

Africa's oil and gas authorities know that Africa Oil Week is where they achieve their goals. Nine government ministers, including Nigeria, Cote d'Ivoire, United States of America and South Africa, used the forum last year to share their market outlooks, make deals, and network with attendees.


1,300+ delegates

As the meeting place for the continent's oil and gas sector, with over 1,300 attendees from around the globe, Africa Oil Week was the networking platform of the year. 


Prospect Forum

The Africa Oil Week Prospect Forum, held in partnership with AAPG, is a place for governments to present their E&P opportunities to people interested in developing them. Last year's event led to numerous business transactions and there are even more opportunities for 2018 with a dedicated content theatre for NOCs, Independents and Geoscience companies to showcase their farm out blocks.


Unparalleled networking

Africa Oil Week knows that networking is the heart of the event and with cocktail receptions, private dinners and a social function every day, there is no better place to meet colleagues, new business partners and leaders within the industry.  


Enjoyed very much the event and congratulations, it was a successful opportunity for meeting the major players in the Africa oil & gas business.  I found several presentations displayed at the conference very useful and they triggered a lot of interest in my organization - CEPSA

I'd like to congratulate the organisers for successfully executing yet another event for the industry, so important to our continent, particularly during these hard economic times  – Sonangol
