The African Local Content Forum, within Africa Oil Week, is a high-profile platform for National Oil Companies, International Oil Companies, Independent Oil Companies and Service Companies to promote a single vision of the future roadmap for African Local Content within the global oil and gas sector.
The Forum is a unique setting for decision makers with a pan-African view of local  content to meet governments who build local content policy for national development. It is an opportunity to engage 1-2-1 with regional policy makers regarding some of the most pressing local content issues facing Africa. 

Topics to be discussed

- Economical and equitable financial models
- How to build and execute a National Content plan
- Increasing and standardising the level of training and skills enhancement
- Creating a common understanding between project partners of local content responsibilities and ensuring mutual understanding and benefit
National Oil Companies: The Forum will offer NOCs the opportunity to engage with operators looking to develop new and sustainable partnerships to develop capacity across the African upstream. It will also offer a unique opportunity to present new models that will ensure local suppliers are included in the next wave of tenders, projects and contracts.

Independents & Service Providers: The Forum will offer the opportunity to work with governments to shape and support the development of robust local content policy that will create stronger local private sectors, employment and capacity.

Utilization of In-country Supply Chain

African Content Plan
