CEF Group announces participation at the 3rd Southern Africa Oil and Gas Conference

Johannesburg – The CEF Group is thrilled to announce its enthusiastic participation in the upcoming 3rd Annual Southern Africa Oil & Gas Conference, hosted by its subsidiary the Petroleum Agency SA (“PASA”), in partnership with the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (“DMRE”) and the South African Oil & Gas Alliance (“SAOGA”). This prestigious event, scheduled for 13-14 September 2023, promises to be a pivotal platform for advancing discussions and collaborations in the rapidly evolving upstream petroleum industry across the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.

The Southern Africa Oil & Gas Conference is a significant initiative that began in 2021 as a collaborative effort between PASA and SAOGA. With each passing year, the conference has grown exponentially in size and influence. In 2022, the partnership expanded to include the DMRE, resulting in a conference that was more than twice as large as its predecessor. This year, the 3rd annual conference is poised to set new records in terms of attendance, engagement, and impactful insights.

At the core of this initiative is the drive to create a comprehensive local platform accessible to a wide range of stakeholders, including the public and businesses seeking to explore opportunities in the upstream oil and gas industry. The annual conference provides participants with unparalleled strategic insights and valuable networking opportunities with industry peers, policymakers, and operators from across Southern Africa.

“The SADC region boasts a diverse landscape of oil and gas potential, with countries such as Namibia, Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania, Botswana, and Zimbabwe experiencing significant developments in this sector,” explains acting PASA CEO, Dr Tshepo Mokoka.

“This event aims to foster cross-border collaborations and knowledge sharing among these countries and beyond. The CEF Group is excited to play an active role in engaging with stakeholders from these nations, contributing to the broader conversation on sustainable development of the region’s valuable oil and gas resources,” says Dr Mokoka
