ACCRA, (CAJ News) – THE maiden Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit and Exhibition scheduled for Ghana early next month will explore inherent opportunities in the sub- region.

Zenith Professional Training (ZPT), a firm with several years of building oil and gas capac¬ity through industry specialized training, is organizing the event set for April 1-3 under the theme, “Unlocking Potentials in sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil & Gas.”

The summit and exhibition is aimed at bringing to the fore the intricacies of the oil and gas sector, the potentials of the industry and the sizable share of global reserves and resources deposited in Nigeria, Ghana and other oil-producing countries in the Sub-Saharan African region.

Issues to be discussed range from cross-border matters, particularly for stakeholder licenses, financial instruments for marginal fields, local content drive, to security and safety in extractive industries and sustainable management of resources.

The event will afford participants the opportunity to showcase their organization’s brand and products, launch company’s new products and services, increase product awareness across the Sub-Saharan African region, face to face contact with potential clients and clients’ customers as well as networking with key decision makers.

The event in Ghana follows the realization, with more than 4 200 oil and gas blocks identified, Africa is the last true oil and gas frontier.

More than 80 percent of the 1 300 blocks in North Africa are licensed, while in sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that only about 30 percent of 2 900 blocks are licensed.
