Large amounts of foreign investments have been injected into the East African oil and gas industry due to recent offshore discoveries and government policies for monetising the region’s reserve. These changes have propelled East Africa as the next lucrative market in the international oil, gas and LNG market.

Major oil and gas companies have expanded their business into this under-explored region. In July 2012, PTT Exploration and Production outbid Royal Dutch Shell for the $US1.9 billion takeover bid of Cove Energy, giving the company access to massive gas reserves off the East African coast. BG Group and Ophir Energy have also discovered gas off the coast of Tanzania this year.

Join major companies, along with senior government officials, regulatory bodies and associations at the East Africa Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference, taking place onNovember 2014 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania who will discuss new commercial opportunities, geopolitical challenges, recent developments, case studies on successful explorations and community engagement strategies.
