West Africa’s premier Energy Event MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power will take place in Dakar, Senegal, from 1-2 September 2022
Representing the region’s official energy event, President of the Republic of Senegal HE Macky Sall will host ministries and high-level officials from across the region. The event will serve as a catalyst for investment and multi-sector development in 2022.
MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2022 will be developed in partnership with Senegal’s national oil company Petrosen, the Business Council of Renewable Energies of Senegal, and COS-Petrogaz. The second edition of the region’s premier energy event’s agenda and topic programme will be relevant to all stakeholders across the value chain.
On the oil and gas front, the MSGBC region is considered to be in the early stages of a hydrocarbon boom, having hosted the cross-border GTA field and the Sangomar oil field. Notable discoveries include the BP-operated Yakaar-Teranga and BirAllah discoveries offshore Senegal and Mauritania, containing up to a combined 85 tcf of natural gas. In addition to oil and gas, the region is considered to be one of the richest regarding renewables resources and human capital, while offering lucrative associated sector opportunities such as forestry, agriculture, and mining.
Overall, the summit serves as the only event dedicated to energy development in Mauritania, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, and Guinea-Conakry, demonstrating ECP’s long-standing commitment towards attracting investment in one of Africa’s most exciting regions. Built against a backdrop of sizeable oil and gas discoveries and associated large-scale multi-sector project developments, MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2022, under the auspices of the Government of Senegal, will return to Dakar in September 2022 to further enhance investment in the basin while emphasising the region’s success regarding cross-border cooperation and integration.
“MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power is the sole energy conference dedicated to the entire MSGBC region. During the 2022 edition, delegates can expect a strong line-up of industry-focused panel discussions, innovative networking experiences, technical and strategic sessions, as well as investor-matching functions that all serve to position the region as a globally competitive energy market. Backed by sizeable oil, gas and renewables reserves, modernised legislature, and strong regional relationships, the region is set to experience unprecedented energy and economic growth, with MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power 2022 further enhancing this trend. By attending and participating in the conference, energy stakeholders from all over the world can be a part of the region’s energy revolution,” stated Kelly-Ann Mealia, ECP chairperson.
