5th Africa Oil Governance Summit

                            

The Africa Oil Governance Summit (AOGS) is the flagship programme of the Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP). Instituted in 2015, the main goal of the Summit is to expose and address pertinent governance and development issues pertaining to the management and use of oil and gas resources across the African continent. The AOGS thus creates the avenue for, and brings together, stakeholders in the oil and gas space across Africa and beyond to deliberate on efficient and effective approaches to engender sustainable and inclusive development through exploitation of Africa’s oil and gas resources.

MEET OUR SPEAKERS

The speakers for this year’s summit have been drawn from different countries with a great track record in governance, the petroleum sector, oil and gas and the total management of natural resources. Last year’s speakers share some similarities with this year’s speakers. However because of the different theme, most are new. They are not only dynamic in their area of expertise, but wield extraordinary knowledge which when tapped into, will go a long way in shaping our developmental process toward excellence.

  • ACEP has produced a yet to be published paper that dwells on experiences of indigenous Ghanaian companies, international oil companies, regulators and other stakeholders in local content implementation, documenting lessons for learning.[1] Read More
