Description

Panellists will discuss and debate the most recent market trends in Africa’s oil and gas sector and the most likely risks and opportunities presented by fluctuating prices, increasing competition, and the effects of global and regional efforts to regulate energy production. • Conflicting global price signals – how is the African energy sector responding to a more decentralised international oil market? • What are the short, medium, and long-term consequences of global environmental initiatives, like the Paris Agreement, on Africa’s energy production and the incentives for governments and companies to innovate? • What is the outlook for deal making and what opportunities exist for investors, and what risks should they expect in coming years?
