Africa Oil & Power (AfricaOilandPower.com) is the only event group uniting the entire energy value chain, from oil exploration to renewables and focusing on the African continent; AOP 2020 flagship conference takes place on September 15-17 in Cape Town under the theme #InvestWithoutBoundaries; Key national conferences in 2020, held in partnership with government, include Senegal, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, and South Sudan.

Africa is open for business in the energy sector in 2020. As the expanding natural gas and power sectors drive growth across the continent, Africa Oil & Power presents a series of events that target global and African investors and profile the leading projects and investment destinations in 2020.

With the 2019 ratification of the African Continental Free Trade Area – which aims to make doing business on the continent easier and encourages African countries to trade with each other – intra-African trade could increase by as much as 52 percent by 2022. It is against this backdrop that Africa Oil & Power presents the 2020 theme for the pan-African AOP 2020 conference: #InvestWithoutBoundaries.

In addition to the flagship AOP 2020 conference in Cape Town, this year's line-up of events includes Equatorial Guinea's Year of Investment campaign, the second Angola Oil & Gas, the first-ever Senegal Oil & Power, and South Sudan's fourth national energy conference.

"AOP's 2020 series of events drive trade and investment in energy on the African continent. It's a privilege to continue working with national partners in Equatorial Guinea, Angola, South Africa, and South Sudan, and to forge a powerful partnership with Senegal for our first national conference in Dakar this year. AOP is the venue for African and international investors to connect with African energy projects and deals, whether in gas infrastructure or renewable energy technology or any other part of the value chain," said James Chester, Acting CEO of AOP.

Senegal Oil & Power 2020

Senegal has launched its first offshore licensing round, comprising 12 blocks in the MSGBC Basin, and reached a final investment decision on its first LNG project, Grand Tortue Ahmeyim.

Equatorial Guinea Year of Investment

Equatorial Guinea has put its new campaign, 'Equatorial Guinea 2020 Year of Investment,' in motion. The year-long energy investment initiative is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons and organized with the African Energy Chamber. Equatorial Guinea's Gas Megahub project, together with eight investment-ready projects, are setting the course for strategic energy development on the continent in the coming decade. Kicking off the Year of Investment is the Africa Oil & Investment Forum, taking place on June 1, hosted in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.

Angola Oil & Gas 2020

The Angola Oil & Gas Conference & Exhibition 2020 follows a highly successful inaugural event in June 2019 that brought more than 1,700 delegates and nearly 50 exhibitors together. Angola Oil & Gas 2020, hosted in Luanda from June 16-17, will be the focal point of an international investment drive aiming to bring new deals to the table as the government eyes the restructuring of Sonangol and downstream expansion and holds a 2020 licensing round.
