Oil and gas exploration focus on Western Africa

Wednesday, Feb 06, 2013

WINDHOEK, Namibia, February 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --19th Western Africa Oil, Gas & Energy Conference 2013, held in Windhoek

With an interior domain across 27 countries, covering one half of the African land mass, and offshore potential from Morocco to the Cape, the Western Africa oil and gas exploration zone is one of the world's richest and most promising for ventures and new opportunities in the upstream market. The 19th Western Africa Oil, Gas & Energy Conference 2013 will focus on the oil and gas opportunities and potential, both offshore and onshore, in this vast zone.

The Conference is hosted by Global Pacific & Partners and held from April 22 nd until 24th at the Hilton Hotel in Windhoek, Namibia. The meeting will reveal opportunities and business cases for hydrocarbon exploration, discovery and development as well as gas-LNG and energy development. The key focus lies on major players, government opportunities, leading independents, Atlantic basins and gas/LNG markets, and Western Africa's many prospective oil and gas frontiers.

"No global player or emerging independent with an international footprint, or even a fast-growing state oil company, can afford to underrate this world-class Western African play," Dr Duncan Clarke, Chairman & CEO of Global Pacific & Partners states. "Western Africa offers a rich suite of technical and corporate options: abundant acreage, acquisitions, bid rounds, new exploration frontiers, a consistent record of oil and gas discoveries, rising oil and gas reserves, attractive contract terms, competitive potential in LNG ventures across several countries, and even large undeveloped resources in heavy oil, oil sands, and emerging shale gas and oil ventures."

The Conference is attended by governments, national oil companies, licensing agencies and leading corporate players.

The Program highlights presentations about future offshore and onshore potential in numerous countries including inter alia: Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Mauritania, Sao Tome, Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Namibia and Congo - plus on regional projects and joint development zones, and the West African gas pipeline.
