Honorable Sangafowa-Coulibaly Mamadou, Minister of Mines, Oil and Energy of the Republic of Ivory Coast, will officially attend the African Oil Week (www.Africa-OilWeek.com) 2022 from October 3-7.
The Honorable Sangafowa-Coulibaly Mamadou will join more than 30 ministers at the event in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa.
Organized by Hyve Group Plc., Africa Oil Week is the premier oil and gas event that promises to bring together major energy stakeholders to celebrate this year's theme: Sustainable Growth in a Low Carbon World.
“African Oil Week warmly welcomes the Hon. Sangafowa-Coulibaly Mamadou from the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, at this year's event.
“We welcome the West African country to the event as they find new opportunities suited to their needs.
Côte d'Ivoire brings its own opportunities to this conference,” said Paul Sinclair, vice president for energy and director of government relations for Africa Oil Week. Côte d'Ivoire is emerging as a new oil and gas hub in West Africa.
New investments in power generation have justified the expansion of the country's gas infrastructure.
The country's largest companies, CIPREL and Azito Energie, are expanding their gas-to-energy plants.
Investments were made in the production, processing and distribution of gas to supply raw material to the new turbines.
Block CI-27 offshore Côte d'Ivoire represents one of West Africa's most strategic gas assets, producing and supplying natural gas to the country's largest energy producers.
CI-27 continues to produce around 70% of the gas consumed in the Ivory Coast, ultimately supplying energy to millions of homes and businesses.
Industry leaders are looking to enter Côte d'Ivoire to take advantage of opportunities within the country for the oil and gas industries.
Bjørn Dale, CEO of DNO, states: "The move to Côte d'Ivoire is an important first step towards a highly prospective region that offers a broad set of growth opportunities."
The Minister of the Republic of Ivory Coast is expected to attend the African Oil Week on behalf of the country.
“We are excited to host the Hon. Minister Sangafowa-Coulibaly, the Minister of Petroleum and Energy of the Republic of Ivory Coast and Ms. Vamissa Bamba, CEO of Petroci, at the Summit to discover the upstream opportunity of Costa of Ivory for international investment,” added Sinclair.
“Africa Oil Week is dedicated to making the challenges and needs of each country heard on a global stage, as well as providing leaders with the opportunity to network with major energy players to discuss investments and even enter a new market.
Global demand for African oil and gas has increased over the last 12 months, which is exactly what we aim to support at AOW,” said Sinclair.
