Frontier Energy has gone online with its highly regarded Africa E&P Summit, due to take place on September 16 and 17.
The event begins with a senior roundtable, with Galp’s executive director of E&P Thore Kristiansen, BP’s vice president exploration Africa Jasper Peijs and Standard Bank’s global head oil and gas – corporate and investment banking Dele Kuti sharing insights.
The panel will consider where Africa sits in global companies’ portfolio and glean an insight into the strategic outlook. What are the hurdles and what are the opportunities?
Panels will follow on licencing in Africa, independent players and new players. There will be a special insight into Liberia’s licence round, led by the Liberia Petroleum Regulatory Authority’s (LPRA) director general Archie Donmo sharing insights on the Harper Basin, West Africa’s last frontier.
Tullow Ghana is also hosting a panel on Ghana’s future, with representatives from Aker Energy and Wood Mackenzie.
On September 17, the day begins with an opportunity to hear how companies are building E&P portfolios, with an eye on how new sources of capital may have a bearing.
This is followed by a “lightning pitch” panel for African states involving The Gambia, South Africa and Mozambique. Next up is a keynote speech from Africa Oil’s CEO Keith Hill, a look at the dynamics behind African E&P and then financing.
Eco Atlantic has a panel focused on Namibian opportunities and developments. The day closes with the “Big Five” award, with Total’s CEO Patrick Pouyanné delivering a speech and (virtually) handing over a silver pangolin-encrusted baton.
A number of networking breaks will be held throughout the days, allowing participants to catch up and hold one-to-one business meetings.
