Africa Oil & Power 2018 Pushed for Energy Coalitions

For the third year running, Cape Town hosted the flagship Africa Oil & Power conference, connecting Africa’s top leaders in the petroleum and power sectors. After 2018’s successful AOP conference, the seminar remains the premier platform for energy investment and policy discussions for the entire continent.

AOP 2018 once again followed the successful formula of inviting ministers, senior government officials and top executives from the private sector from across Africa to lead the conversation on the state of Africa’s oil, gas and power sectors, and to identify the continent’s greatest opportunities.

Africa Oil & Power’s theme for 2018 concentrated on the best way to drive Africa’s energy sectors forward — through energy coalitions, from regional cooperation at the government level and private companies coordinating on development and financing deals to how the private and public sectors can collaborate together.
