800+ Delegates - Senior Oil & Gas Executives, Financiers and Investors
3 Days of meetings, panel discussions, and expanding your business network
10 Hours of Networking Functions

We have a very simple value proposition for you: If you do business in Africa, or are interested in finding out about the opportunities there, you can do three months of business development in three days in Paris – quite a value proposition in a time when costs are being cut across the board.

Last year, over 800 people from 54 countries attended the Assembly – from NOC chiefs, Government Ministers, and SVP and C-level execs from the super majors and independents large and small, public and private (some 150 C-levels in all). Add to that, over 100 investors from around the world (institutional, private, SWF, family office, hedge funds), and you understand why this Assembly has grown to the size it has in just four short years. 

The success of the Oil & Gas Council events series is based on high quality networking and providing you deal-making opportunities with an audience of senior buy-side executives, a free and frank flow of ideas amongst influential leaders and year round global support in cementing relationships made over three days of conferencing.

One the second day, we host the prestigious Africa Dinner where we present the annual African Business Executive of the Year and the NOC of the Year Awards. It’s a sell-out dinner at the InterContinental Le Grand and not to be missed.

See what  the 2014 delegates had to say:

“It was my first time at the Oil & Gas Council and I enjoyed a well-organized event and world-class attendance.”
Ciro Antonio Pagano, Senior Vice President, Sub-Saharan Africa, Eni
“For me, this has been the most productive conference and gathering of oil and gas professionals I’ve ever attended. Suddenly, there is so much appetite and so much capital looking for good investment opportunities in Africa and in Nigeria in particular.”
Abdulrazaq Isa, Co-Founder and CEO, WalterSmith Petroman
“The Oil & Gas Council’s Africa Assembly is truly a gathering place of key decision makers and investors who are engaged in Africa. The team at the Oil & Gas Council go out of their way to ensure that participants get a chance to meet those people of interest to your company."
Shane M. Jaffer, Senior Director, Africa, Government of Alberta
“Great success indeed! Congratulations for the quality of the event and of the audience."
Serge Matesco, Vice President, Sub Saharan Africa, Total E&P
"Without any doubt the networking event of the year for O&G Africa!”
Cees Uijlenhoed, CFO, First E&P
“A word of thanks for an excellent conference. Both in terms of organization and “pitch” this was a top class event.”
Marc den Hartog, Vice President, Commercial, Sub Saharan Africa, Shell
“We like the Oil & Gas Council. You will find even public policy makers using this platform to say things to a global audience.”
Chiagozie Hilary-Nwokonko, Managing Partner, Streamsowers & Kohn
"The Oil & Gas Council deserves its great reputation…I found the Paris conference had some very remarkable speakers, and the various subject matters were very informative."
Jeffrey Martin Waterous, Chairman, JMW Energy Ventures
“There is a huge bandwith – you can meet with all companies and government officials. You get to see many international players and a lot of our clients are here.”
Ramin Lakani, General Manager, Halliburton
“The good thing about the Oil & Gas Council Africa Assembly is that it’s well-attended and a good mix of advisors and industry. The off-the-record conversations we’ve had have been very educational and we picked up on things that we wouldn’t have at an ordinary event.”
Nick Cooper, CEO, Ophir Energy
“What I find particularly unique about the Oil & Gas Council is the combination of industry, the funding bodies and the people who are providing the capital which allows us to go about our business. It’s the combination of those elements in the same room which makes it such a productive, enjoyable and interesting forum.”
Patrick Allman-Ward, CEO, Dana Gas
