We are proud to introduce the AOP Advisory Board, a group of the most accomplished energy specialists in the industry today.

What People Say

Africa Oil & Power unites governments and industry leaders in a series of conferences in key oil, gas and power markets around the African continent.

Our events strive to build strong relationships to create a personal and familiar atmosphere that allows networking and deal-making. Let us hear what some of the energy industry leaders have to say about our events:

Well, I have to say that I have been one of the participants since day one of the conference. Every year is bigger and better. I think they are doing extremely good job. It is the perfect platform to be able to allow especially small-medium countries like Equatorial Guinea to have a voice. Because when you go to big conferences in which you have major and big producers, your voice gets really, in a way lost. For us this is the best major conference to discuss the opportunity in your country rather than going in a way that you know the others that don’t allow us to send our message.

H.E. GABRIEL M. OBIANG LIMA

Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons
of Equatorial Guinea

We get the best out of it and [attending the conference] is a necessity. I would say it has become necessary, because this is a place where we get all the information required and we do a lot of networking. This is a place where you hear Africa as Africa really is. It’s a well packaged program, it’s like doing a continuous PhD program. I thank you for the quality of delivery and for depth of which we get in this conference all the time.

TOPE SHONUBI

Co-founder and Director
Sahara Group

I like the mix of the panels on stage with experts and hearing the opportunities from key ministers. I think you all have done a good job of dividing it up between ministers’ speeches and focus in that way, and then sort of the plenary panels and spotlights for different countries. I think that’s great.

FLORIZELLE LISER

President and CEO
Corporate Council on Africa

What makes Africa Oil & Power in Cape Town stand out is that it’s becoming home. When you look around Africa, most people just talk about oil and gas; most people talk about oil. What you find is that Africa Oil & Power in Cape Town is the only unique place where we talk about the connection between oil and power. The pride you have there that you have so much African participation. African companies telling African stories and really putting something that is uniquely African.

NJ AYUK

Executive Chairman
African Energy Chamber

I think that coming here is an opportunity for us to learn from the other African countries and also to network with them, exchange ideas. I think that it is a really, good opportunity for us, and [AOP] is linking countries, people, governments, NOCs and private sector together.

JOSEPH MEDOU

Exploration & Production Director Petrosen

Africa Oil & Power has been a tool for all of us with oil ministries in Africa to really sell Africa to the whole world and to ourselves… [it] has been an organization that is so important to us to communicate with [the] outside world and, to communicate with ourselves that we have a lot of resources in Africa and we must utilize them for the benefit for all… Africa Oil & Power has been a very excellent organization for all of us.

HON. EZEKIEL LOL GATKUOTH

Former Minister of Petroleum South Sudan

Africa Oil & Power is a very important platform for all policymakers and partners, governments, private sector, business, financial institutions as well as academics in order to ensure that the best minds in oil and gas come together so that we can have one vision and one plan in order to ensure that this world benefits at of oil & gas and other sources of the renewable energy.

HON. JEFF RADEBE

Former Minister of Energy South Africa

I found AOP 2019 to be an awesome experience. People were very receptive to this theme of Africa Oil & Power: how Africans can leverage African natural resources for the benefit of Africans.

C. DEREK CAMPBELL

CEO Energy & Natural Resources Security Inc.

It [AOP] is all about connections. It’s all about meeting people. It is putting the right people together to help each other and empower each other. So many different countries are here… It’s just an extraordinary vibe here. What has struck me the most is the incredible integrity that AOP works with… and their genuine interest in developing people and developing human capital.
