The North Africa Oil & Gas Summit, the region’s premier Oil & Gas event focused exclusively on North Africa’s oil and gas industry will this year be co-hosted by REPSOL in Madrid on 25 - 27 October.
2011 has been a year of political and social unrest with the future outcome still remaining uncertain. Most of the IOCs’ activities in Libya are now under temporary suspension, waiting for the turmoil to be resolved and new governments to be formed.
The North African market is fragmented and the energy landscape is changing. Significant importance has been given to developing renewable energy sector particularly in countries like Morocco and Mauritania, whereas Algeria is developing its shale gas potential. With a new government being formed in Egypt and upcoming Tunisian elections, there has never been a more pertinent time for the North African Oil & Gas Summit.
The upcoming period is of crucial importance for both IOCs and NOCs. They both have challenging objectives to achieve; IOCs - to maximize productivity, NOCs - to attract new investments.
The North Africa Oil & Gas Summit 2011 will be a pivotal event where key decision makers from regional IOCs and NOCs will meet to address issues of crucial importance for the future of the North Africa region including: Future investments, LNG export, unrest in Libya, Shale Gas potential and many others.
The Summit is being developed in conjunction with a high-profile steering committee that includes:
• Ferdinando Rigardo, Regional Executive Director Europe, Asia & Africa, Repsol Upstream
• Fred d’Ambrosio, Commercial Advisor, Hess
• Charles Gurdon, Managing Director, Menas Associates
• Khaled Mamour, North Africa Regional Manager, Canusa
• Carole Nakhle, Senior Research Fellow, Surrey Economics Centre
