"The event separates itself from traditional conferences and exhibitions. There are no booths or exhibition halls. We focus on delivering extremely high quality, high level gatherings with some of the most senior executives in the oil and gas sector in an intimate five star setting," said Vale Media Group.

"The themes and topics of our summits are end user driven and are put together by our content committee which consists of a delegation and government relations team who set the hot themes and issues that are currently facing the oil and gas industry," according to Vale Media Group.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The industry’s spotlight is focused on further unlocking the potential of the largely underexplored West Africa region.

Companies interested in the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
