After a pattern of producing and selling $90 oil, the industry was jolted when OPEC announced last November to maintain its production rates, sending global commodity prices into a tailspin and oil and gas companies were thrust into a new reality.However, the oil and gas industry has faced major disruption in the past and its ability to be innovative, to lower costs, and to adapt will enable them to take advantage of this new reality.Oil and gas companies must harness technological advances to access resources across North Africa. And government policy and reaction will be a critical factor in determining attractiveness for investment in North Africa versus the rest of the world.

The North Africa Oil & Gas Summit is the meeting place for IOCs to connect with regional NOCs and understand how to create win/ win partnerships in a time where cooperation and collaboration is more important than ever. Gathering Petroleum Ministers, NOCs and IOCs from Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco, the event explores opportunities for investment across the region, present the latest technologies and debate the best financial strategies to support oil and gas projects.Through IOC/NOC strategic panel discussions, technical presentations, country focused roundtable and a range of networking sessions, the North Africa Oil and Gas Summit builds relationships between the region’s key players, and helps shape the future of the oil and gas industry in North Africa.

With domestic demand rising and fuel consumption due to double in the next decade the region is turning its attention to their refining and petrochemical assets. Running alongside the North Africa Oil and Gas Summit, the North Africa Downstream Summit will once again create the ideal meeting place to understand latest technologies to increase the region refining and petrochemical capacity and find value in the chain.
