Workshops at Africa Oil Week: Learn from the Best

This year, Africa Oil Week plays host to a series of technical workshops hosted by high-level speakers and organisations - including:

LNG-to-Power Workshop - hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy

Africa Oil Week is pleased to announce the presence of US Energy Secretary Rick Perry as a guest of honour at an invitation-only session titled “A Roadmap for Global Energy Policy – Diverse Destinations”. And, on the first day of Africa Oil Week, the US Department of Energy is presenting its LNG Handbook, designed to facilitate LNG projects in Sub-Saharan African nations and running the LNG-to-Power Workshop.
To create the handbook, a series of workshops with African government representatives and private sector LNG experts were held - and the results of this will be showcased live at Africa Oil Week. Click below to book your place at this exclusive opportunity to learn more about LNG in Africa.

Africa Science Forum: Fuelled by AAPG

The AAPG Africa Science Forum comprises three half-day forums focusing on energising the growing world through knowledge and technology:

“The Future of Conventional Oil and Gas Exploration in Africa” (Tuesday 24th October), covering new frontiers being explored , challenges lying ahead to reduce costs and make ventures profitable, clastic and carbonate reservoirs in offshore and onshore environments, deep water exploration challenges and mitigation scenarios.

“Reducing Risk in the Business of Africa Petroleum Exploration” (Wednesday 25th October). This session discusses the combination of skilled human resources, innovative thinking and new technologies continuing to be the key factor in finding and developing new sources of hydrocarbons in the most challenging environments, reservoir management in conventional, frontier and marginal field areas and new technologies to mitigate risk and enhance profitability.

“North American Lessons for Unconventional Resource Plays in Africa” (Thursday 26th October). Focusing on methodologies to extract and understand unconventional resources, the development of shale gas in Africa, the main motivators/retarders - gas market, finances, regulations or technology and infrastructure, shale gas, shale oil, oil shale, CBM, tight sand, basin centred gas, and gas hydrate and whether they are really game changers in a low cost environment.

Marine Seep Hunting - Technology at the Forefront of Hydrocarbon Exploration
