Fuelling the future of African energy

The leading business intelligence and deal-making platform for Africa’s oil and gas sector

At Africa Oil Week we believe in the power of events and the communities they build. With COVID-19 continuing to dominate the news and conversations in our communities, we want to let you know that Africa Oil Week is still planned to take place on 2-6 November 2020 in Cape Town, SA. This is an unprecedented and fast-developing situation and we are monitoring and following global developments closely – for more information, please read here.

This is an extremely challenging time for the oil and gas industry. Bringing people together is at the heart of what we do, and we are proud to be a part of this industry as we face these uncertain times. Though the situation remains fluid and uncertain, we remain optimistic and will support our community however we can in this challenging time. As it stands, AOW 2020 will be going ahead as planned, we will continue to announce our exciting speaker line-up over the coming weeks and months.
