Equatorial Guinea to host the 5th GECF Summit

44566099652 2e5896cafc zMinisters and heads of state from all nations of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) will meet in Malabo to discuss the future of natural gas in the energy mix

The event, which will be held from 26-29 November, will take place for the first time on the African continent. The 2nd International Gas Seminar is also part of the 5th GECF Summit of Heads of State and Government.

Organised every two years, the gathering will bring together leaders from the main gas producers of the world, including Algeria, Bolivia, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Iran, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Russia, Trinidad and Tobago, the UAE and Venezuela.

It will provide a platform for members to discuss trends in the gas market, potential policies for the energy sector and opportunities to collaborate.

GECF’s original aim was to plan and manage natural gas resources in an autonomous way from petroleum. Based on this premise, member countries agreed to hold regular heads of state summits in one of the countries. They would discuss the latest global state of the natural gas market and adopt joint strategies aimed at maximising the economic benefits of the sector.

The 2nd GECF International Seminar is scheduled to take place in Malabo at the same time as the 5th GECF Gas Summit. The event will be attended by GECF and non-GECF ministers, academics, oil and gas industry experts, CEOs of international and national oil companies, analysts and media, as well as the first edition. This edition of the seminar is expected to strengthen the position of the organisation as a reference institution on natural gas issues.
