The MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power Conference and Exhibition, organised by Energy Capital & Power, will take place on 13-14 December 2021 at the Centre International de Conference Abdou DIOUF (CICAD) in Diamniadio of Dakar, Senegal
The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, Cos-Petrogaz, Petrosen and Coperes will lead high-level discussions about investment opportunities in the emerging energy sectors of Senegal and the various MSGBC region countries. Various governmental delegations from the MSGBC region, West Africa and other oil and gas producing countries from throughout sub-Saharan Africa will be attending the discussion panels, presentations and two days of high-level networking with the top players in the energy sector.
Under the theme #ANewWaveOfInvestment, MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2021 will showcase some of the major projects coming onstream over the course of 2023-2024 including SNE, Sangomar, GTA and flagship projects in the renewable energy industry like the Taiba N´Diaye wind farm.
"This landmark conference will help stimulate investment in our country in this sector, with the forthcoming prospects for oil and gas exploitation, and also in the renewable energy sector in which our country has made significant progress with nearly 30% clean energy in the electricity grid. The imminent arrival of local gas will make Senegal energy independent and constitute a significant element of our energy transition, considering climate change, to produce clean and accessible energy at a lower cost, thanks to innovative programs in this area," said HE Aissatou Sophie Gladima, minister of petroleum and energy.
MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2021 will see the strong participation of official delegations from many sub-Saharan African countries, in particular those from the MSGBC sedimentary basin (Mauritania, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau and Guinea Conakry), as well as other oil- producing countries from West Africa and North Africa, alongside investment partners from Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia.
