Description


Gas and oil play a key role in Africa. In North Africa, four countries out of the seven are gas and oil producers, three of which are large consumers/exporters.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, oil is by far the most important source of commercial energy. While some countries (e.g. Nigeria and Angola) are large producers/exporters, many others require imported oil; as such, their energy bill is a large percentage of their GDP.

Developing gas and oil production, improving the management of oil revenues, developing the logistics for gas and oil imports and exports, and methods of saving gas and oil everywhere possible are all key issues in Africa.

Audience


Executives from medium-sized or large companies involved in gas and oil activities, as well as corporate consultants looking to sharpen their expertise in the field.

Average participants in class: 10
