Africa’s largest gathering of O&G investors, financiers and business developers

Let’s face it - there are lots of conferences throughout the year around the world in our industry. One after the other boldly proclaims to be the largest, which is why when you actually have hundreds more investors than any comparable event in the world you need to shout about it. Like your choice of watch, be aware of lesser imitations! Being the world’s largest finance and investment network for O&G allows us to place you in front of actual investors, all of whom are looking to source deals on the African continent.  

It all means spending more time meeting, speaking and listening to more of the people you want, and less time wasted on attending events where the audience mix ‘just isn’t quite right’ for you. Our African Assembly is genuinely different. We pair O&G companies with financiers and investors looking to invest billions of dollars in Africa (Institutional Investors, Private Equity, Investment Banks, SWFs, Hedge Funds, ECAs, Multilaterals and Indigenous African Banks).

The success of the Oil Council has been built upon offering superior value and quality to today’s time-pressed industry leaders who demand:

  • High quality networking and deal making opportunities 
  • An audience of senior executives on the buy-side
  • Free and frank flow of ideas amongst influential O&G leaders – supported by CHATHAM HOUSE RULES
  • Year round global support in cementing relationships made over two-days of conferencing   
The Oil Council has been delivering such events around the world since our founding in Africa. We continue to ensure we over-deliver on one simple promise: to host the best forums in the world for senior executives to meet and have constructive conversations with the right people.

The Oil Council was Founded in Africa – this event is produced from our Cape Town office after extensive field trips to all the major hydrocarbon regions across the continent. We are therefore in a position to support your corporate development needs in Africa, better than any other business working thousands of miles away; promoting the opportunities of a continent they understand little about. 
Finally, don’t just take our word for it – see what some of our 80,000 followers say:  

“My congratulations to you and your team on the success of the conference! I hugely enjoyed it. The networking was excellent! Most speakers very insightful. Without any doubt the networking event of the year for O&G Africa!”
Cees Uijlenhoed, CEO, Upstream and Group CFO, Sahara Group

“Many thanks for the invite on Rob's behalf. Congrats for the event which has clearly more than met my expectations. I hope that I will be able to come and assist any future oil council events (at least I'll lobby for it)”
Pascal M. Quitt, Galena Asset Management

“Thanks for an excellent conference. Both in terms of organization and “pitch” this was a top class event. Sadly I had only one day (minus evening) in my schedule to attend. Had I known what a quality event this would be, I would have ensured I could have attended the whole thing.”
Marc den Hartog, Vice President, Commercial, Sub Saharan Africa, Shell

“A superb representation of oil and gas professionals discussing the key topics facing the industry in Africa and providing unfettered access to each and every attendee. It's an intellectual and networking gold mine.”
Jonny Cowan, Partner, Alesco
