Nigeria missing as AOP unveils Oil & Gas Investment reports of other nations

Africa Oil and Power’s (AOP), a strategic industry Africa Energy Series (AES) reports are set for launch at the 2019 AOP conference in Cape Town.

Accordingly, Petroleum ministers from South Africa, Senegal, Angola, and Equatorial Guinea will present their country-specific investment reports throughout the three-day conference with all delegates attending AOP 2019 and international investors will receive copies of the AES reports.

Providing a broad outlook on the energy sectors of South Africa, Angola, Senegal and Equatorial Guinea, the AES investment reports are a compilation of resources, articles and interviews with key industry players examining the potential and challenges in each country’s petroleum industry.

Analysts say the investment reports are a vital resource for investors entering or expanding their presence in the continent’s energy sector. Covering both macro and micro-dynamics, the AES reports are one of the few holistic and informed resources available for an otherwise information scarce industry.

Whereas efforts to find out why Nigerian Minister is not making any form of presentation or launch Nigeria’s oil and gas investment potential report at the event, Business Hilights gathered that H.E. Gwede Mantashe, South Africa’s Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy, will launch the South Africa report on the first day of the AOP conference, followed by H.E. Mouhamadou Makhtar Cisse, Senegal’s Minister of Petroleum and Energy who will present the report on Senegal, which has been endorsed by H.E Macky Sall, President of Senegal as “the official publication documenting the immense investment opportunities within our oil and gas sector and within our country.”

Showcasing the country’s energy industry, the AES: Angola report will be launched on the second day of the three-day conference.

Endorsing the report, the country’s President H.E. João Manuel Gonçalves Lourenço said: “At a time when our country stands resolute in its efforts to attract investment and promote partnership in all segments of the energy value chain, it has never been more critical to showcase the vision that our country has for its petroleum and gas industry to the rest of the world,”

He said “I am honored to present the Africa Energy Series: Angola 2019 report as an official publication exploring the past achievements, future endeavors and untold investment opportunities present in our ever-growing oil and gas industry.”

Also, H.E. Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima, Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons of Equatorial Guinea will present the AES: Equatorial Guinea 2019 report, which has been embraced by the country’s President, H.E. Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo as a means to honor the contributions of individuals, organizations, government and the private sector which have remained committed to the country’s development.

“I am delighted to present the Africa Energy Series: Equatorial Guinea 2019 report as the official publication documenting the Year Of Energy and detailing the oil and gas achievements of this country,” said President Mbasogo, while endorsing the country’s second AES investment report.

It was gathered that under the theme #MakeEnergyWork, Africa Oil & Power will facilitate discussions on new technology disrupting the energy sector, the potential of renewable energy, the state of the oil and gas industry, local content development, and more.
