Hosted by, and produced in partnership with NVentures, this edition features five offshore asset presentations from leading independents: Africa Energy Corp, VAALCO Energy, Impact Oil & Gas, Heritage Oil and Eco Atlantic.

All five centre around prospective opportunities offshore Africa, from Equatorial Guinea to southern Africa; a region which has recently been in the industry spotlight for its high-profile discoveries and deepwater plays – signaling the possibility of further groundbreaking reserves.

Each presentation gives an in-depth look into the asset or portfolio opportunity, including: license details, exploration history, available data, farm-in process and timelines.

The presentations include:

Garrett Soden, president, CEO and director of Africa Energy Corp, presents their portfolio of world-class assets offshore southern Africa.

David DesAutels, EVP corporate development at VAALCO Energy, presents high-value opportunities across Block P, offshore Equatorial Guinea.

Philip Birch, exploration director at Impact Oil & Gas, presents their targeted billion-barrel portfolio.

David McGurk, exploration director at Heritage Oil, presents their drill-ready, low-risk exploration opportunity lying at the heart of a world-class petroleum system.

Selma Usiku, senior geologist at Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas, presents highly prospective opportunities in the Walvis Basin, offshore Namibia.

For 2021, AOW looks forward to hosting a full day’s programme of the Africa Independents Forum, as it welcomes more than 20 Independents to the Main Stage to present world-class farm-ins and the hottest asset opportunities from across the continent.
