The three-day event, which starts on 8 October 2013, is expected to shed light on the amount of investment required before production can commence in countries including Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, South Sudan and, more recently, Ethiopia.

East African governments and ministerial officials in the hydrocarbons industry have already initiated and propelled dialogue across their boarders to ensure their collaboration benefits their own countries as well as the region.

Among the speakers confirmed for the EAOG Summit 2013 are Sinknes Ejigu, minister of mines, Ethiopia; Sumayya Hassan-Athmani, managing director of National Oil Company of Kenya and Abdullahi Haider, petroleum & minerals senior adviser to the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Somalia.

Ministers and government representatives will deliver updates on the licensing rounds across the region, including new auction based licensing rounds in Mozambique and Kenya, Tanzania and South Sudan’s plans for the next phase of exploration, further investment opportunities for oil exploration in Uganda and Ethiopia, and the unexplored offshore opportunities in Federal Republic of Somalia.

In 2012, more than 200 international investors met in London at the first EAOG Summit with the attendance of ministry officials from Ethiopia, Kenya and Mozambique to secure partnerships and pave the way for long term strategic collaborations.

According to the summit organisers, the event will provide international, regional and local investors with the opportunity to know about the vast opportunities across the region and network with the key decision makers.
