Energy & Corporate Africa, a hydrocarbon assessor, conference, training organizers and market intelligence firm  has the pleasure to invite you to  Sub-Saharan Africa Oil/Gas Webinar series scheduled for June 10 -11 , 2020 .


 The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the crashing of the oil and gas market and created steep decline in revenue of producing nations and companies. Amid the market volatility and contraction is the optimism that a full rebound is expected soon. In the midst of the market crash and the plunge in various economies, investors’ confidence declined resulting to exits and nose diving of businesses in the sector.

While planning for recovery, it is the intent of this webinar to generate discussion and showcase the strategic moves nations and companies are making to ensure recovery, sustainability, growth, and maintaining adequate foreign investment to balance domestic participation.

Again, diversity in the energy sector and the need for clean energy has sprouted the magnificent use of gas and LNG. Sub-Saharan Africa has massive proven reserves of gas which could drive the economies of the producing nations to a prosperous height.  As the market rebounds and increase in demand is expected, the need to expand the gas potentials of the region in the domestic and international market to ensure economic development has become very important. This forms part of the strategic presentations and discussions in this webinar
