After discussion with our partners in South Africa and key stakeholders in the oil and gas community, we have made a collective decision to reschedule Africa Oil Week 2020 to 1-5 February 2021. For more information, please read here.
In the meantime, we are delighted to announce the launch of AOW Virtual, which will take place 7-8 October 2020.

This strategic event will feature free content streamed online, including pioneering insights from operators, a natural gas vs renewables debate and an unmissable Somalia licensing round session (featuring the ministry and a panel of security, financing and geophysics experts). Best of all, AOW Virtual is now CPD certified, so attending sessions will count towards your continuing professional development.
