Cote d’Ivoire’s Ministry of Mines, Petroleum & Energy, PETROCI and International Gas Union will host the CWC Group’s 16th Gulf of Guinea Oil & Gas Conference (GOG16) in Abidjan, November 6-8, 2013. The event is one of the longest running and most recognised platforms to focus on West Africa’s energy sector and confirmed to be inaugurated by the country’s Minister of Mines, Petroleum & Energy, H.E. Adama Toungara.
Both H.E. Adama Toungara and Petroci’s Director General, Daniel Gnangni have been personally involved in inviting energy ministers from across the region. According to Daniel Gnangni, “Petroci are very pleased to be co-hosting the 16th edition of CWC’s Gulf of Guinea Gas Conference (GOG16), recognised as the most senior and established forum to focus on West Africa’s thriving gas sector. This strategic conference will gather representatives from governments, national oil and gas companies and leading operators to exchange ideas, share experiences, and devise future strategies to increase the participation of indigenous players in gas activities and promote industrial and economic development.”
The event is expected to bring together more than 300 top executives, decision-makers and leaders in the field from countries around the region and internationally. It provides an unrivalled opportunity to network and participate in a variety of meetings and discussions regarding the industry’s future. This year’s event will have a special focus on the Gulf of Guinea’s hydrocarbons industry and will examine options of gas monetisation, future intra-regional collaborative projects and the role of gas as an economic driver for the region.
