Energy Capital & Power (ECP) announced the launch of the fifth edition of South Sudan Oil & Power (SSOP) 2022 taking place in Juba from 7-8 September
It will be in official partnership with the Ministry of Petroleum as well as the Ministry of Energy and Dams, and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning.
The organiser and government are encouraging Asian, European and North American companies and delegations to join the event. Among Middle East and Africa regional players, SSOP will welcome ministerial and investor delegations from Kenya, Sudan, Egypt, Uganda, Ethiopia, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, South Africa and more.
“Having cemented its status as one of Africa’s leading onshore energy markets, South Sudan is now seeking to maximise the value of its natural resources, in line with the energy transition and its development goals,” said Laila Bastati, managing director of ECP. “We are excited to develop a program that reflects these priorities, and that demonstrates the reality of South Sudan’s position - as the dominant player in energy development in East Africa and as an increasingly competitive location to invest on the edge of the MENA region.”
SSOP is celebrating its fifth anniversary as the premier international forum driving business and investment in East Africa’s only major oil-producing market in 2022. This year’s event will emphasise the important role that energy companies play in ensuring the growth of the national economy, as well as the personal and professional growth of the citizens of South Sudan, with a view to facilitating a sustainable energy transition and fostering local capacity building.
