AOP 2020

Africa Oil & Power’s top priority remains to keep our people, partners, and clients safe. Therefore, the dates of our scheduled events are subject to change as we monitor the global progress of COVID- 19. Please check our website for updates.


Africa Oil & Power (AOP) is returning to Cape Town for the fifth year running on September 15-17, 2020, uniting Africa’s investors and leaders in the oil and gas, power and downstream industries for three days.

Under the theme Invest Without Boundaries, AOP 2020 highlights the importance of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area, the largest free trade area in the world, as a catalyst for energy production and innovation.

As African producers increasingly extend their energy value chains and as all African nations court global FDI for their energy sectors, AOP 2020 is the place to discover who is investing in African energy, why now, and in which projects.

AOP 2020 is the only conference on the continent that fully unites power with petroleum, focusing on the driving factors behind Africa’s energy transition.

For the first time, AOP 2020 will also host the Africa Renewables Forum, the Africa LNG Forum and the Energy Finance Forum, in line with the vision of South Africa’s Department of Mineral Resources and Energy and government and private sector partners from all four corners of the continent.
