Minister of Petroleum & Energy, Senegal

Global investment in exploration and production are expected to increase in 2018 -2019 due to improvements in the oil and gas market. Nigeria, Sene-Gambia regions are been predicted by analysts as zones that most of the investments would be experienced.

Nigeria, the foremost producer in Africa is working towards increasing its daily production to 3million barrels, while also contemplating on what effect OPEC’s cut off policy would have on its production and market potentials. Also expecting the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) which is hoped would transform the business dynamics of the country into fruition, and available large and marginal fields to be licensed soon, with extensively listed farm-in/out opportunities, Nigeria’s significance as oil and gas investors’ focus will increase tremendously between 2018 -2019.

Major presentations from core leadership of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and Department of Petroleum Resources would showcase the latest trend and investment opportunities in the country.

Senegal and the SeneGambia zone has become a very attractive to investors and oil exploration production companies. Since 2014, when the greatest discovery was made in Senegal new doors opened and many other discoveries have been reported. Drilling has commenced seriously in Senegal and production is expected in 2019.

Elimane KANE, the Director General of Ministry of Hydrocarbon, Senegal, Aminata Ndoye Toure and Joseph Medou, the Exploration and Production Director, of Petrosen, Senegal’s national oil company will be on stage in the 11th Annual Sub-Saran Africa Oil & Gas Conference scheduled for April 26 -27, 2018 to give updates  on the E & P trends in Senegal, opportunities and its friendly investment environment as the nation creates opportunities to welcome more companies to Senegal which has become a new oil/gas paradise in Sub-Saharan Africa.
