East Africa continues to dominate much interest in the global Oil and Gas sector. Significant onshore discoveries in Uganda has only added to the widely anticipated East Africa gas evolution. Across this session, major operators and governments confront and discuss the biggest issues prohibiting growth, and how we take discoveries through to production: 

• Do we need more gas to justify further exploration?
• Supply and Demand: How will the shift from long-term take-off purchase agreements affect production in East African Gas?
• Gas monetisation in East Africa: LNG, LPG, pipeline or gas-to-power?
• Which fields will make it in line with infrastructure development and monetisation?
•  New technologies enabling offshore development and hydrocarbon recovery. Will mega projects such as Coral South FLNG unlock production in offshore East Africa?

Exploring two of the most exciting projects in Uganda, the Tilenga project includes a CPF with capcacity for 190,000 barrels/day and over 400 wells which are planned to be drilled on 35 wellpads, whilst the Kingfisher project’s CPF has capacity for 40,000 barrels/day and 31 wells to be drilled on 4 well pads, with CNOOC Ltd. commencing pre-development work.

Tendrara
Sound Energy PLC is a mid-cap Moroccan gas company, which is exploring the significant potential (up to 34 Tcf) of the Triassic and Paleozoic plays in Eastern Morocco following its first (0.65Tcf GIP) discovery in 2017. The company, together with its strategic partner Schlumberger, has just completed a 3,000km 2D seismic programme and will shortly initiate its high impact three well exploration programme with a view to unlocking the multi Tcf potential. The company was recently awarded the production concession for the existing discovery whereby initial production of c.60mmscfd will connect to the GME pipeline via a new 20”pipeline and offtake is expected to be either domestic gas-to-power generation or export via GME pipeline to Southern Europe.

Energy Transition Outlook to 2050: Global & African Context

This session overviews and forecasts the region’s future energy mix, in the context of a changing global picture, addressing energy supply and demand as it transitions from the current mix to a very different one by 2050.

In this session our panelists explore the findings and outlooks for the African continent and discuss: 
• How will the energy mix evolve and how will oil and gas continue to dominate the regional energy mix? 
• The outlook for conventional oil and gas demand, G2P, and renewable sources 
• The impacts on regional energy projects, energy trade and government policy

Together the JV seen the production of natural gas for the at Cameroon LNG project via Golar LNG Ltd.’s floating LNG (FLNG) production unit Hilli Episeyo.

During Q4 2017 the FLNG Hilli Episeyo vessel arrived offshore in Cameroon to provide ship-to-ship transfer. This truly ground breaking project has captured the imagination and eyes of the Africa energy space in what can only be described as one of the continents truly transformative projects.  It is forecast that Cameroon LNG’s will produce some  1.2 million tonne/year from the LNG Hilli Episeyo vessel. During this exclusive session the Government of Cameroon and Perenco will detail how they broke ground on this remarkable project.

This has prompted NOCs to readjust and develop their strategies for better national participation in the upstream oil and gas sector.
In this session, we have invited African NOCs to answer the following strategic concerns:
 • An insight into NOC's strategies
• The inside track on how NOCs create differentiated capabilities
 • How can NOCs organize and plan for sustainable growth?
 • The need for NOCs to drive stronger B2G dialogue to develop capacity and organizational structure to deliver on national development strategies

Tilenga & Kingfisher
Exploring two of the most exciting projects in Uganda, the Tilenga project includes a CPF with capcacity for 190,000 barrels/day and over 400 wells which are planned to be drilled on 35 wellpads, whilst the Kingfisher project’s CPF has capacity for 40,000 barrels/day and 31 wells to be drilled on 4 well pads, with CNOOC Ltd. commencing pre-development work.

Tendrara
Sound Energy PLC is a mid-cap Moroccan gas company, which is exploring the significant potential (up to 34 Tcf) of the Triassic and Paleozoic plays in Eastern Morocco following its first (0.65Tcf GIP) discovery in 2017. The company, together with its strategic partner Schlumberger, has just completed a 3,000km 2D seismic programme and will shortly initiate its high impact three well exploration programme with a view to unlocking the multi Tcf potential. The company was recently awarded the production concession for the existing discovery whereby initial production of c.60mmscfd will connect to the GME pipeline via a new 20”pipeline and offtake is expected to be either domestic gas-to-power generation or export via GME pipeline to Southern Europe.
