Ghana Hosts 3rd Annual Africa Oil & Gas Local Content Sustainability Conference
National, regional and international oil and gas industry Local Content Experts will gather in Accra, Ghana, for the third edition of the annual Africa Oil & Gas Local Content Sustainability Conference & Exhibition (ALC2019).
The two-day event, which is under the theme, “Shaping the Futurethrough Sustainable Local Content Policies”, takes place from 10-11 October 2019 at Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) is the host National Oil Company (NOC) of ALC2019, which has been endorsed and supported by the Petroleum Commission, Ghana, the Africa Petroleum Producers Organisation (APPO), and the Ministry of Energy, Ghana.
ALC2019 is the third annual continent-wide policy response initiative and platform that brings together regional decision-makers and relevant stakeholders. The key objective is the promotion of increased local value addition and participation in the oil & gas industry supply chain, to achieve the transfer of skills, capacity building and economic development.
The choice of Ghana was informed by the various policies and actions of the Ghana Government & Industry, to encourage local content development and participation of citizens in the oil and gas value chain, since the country joined the ranks of African oil producers.
Professionals within and outside Africa have been assembled to discuss various aspects of the theme. Confirmed Speakers include:
ALC2019 will feature a technical exhibition alongside the main conference and will gather national, regional and international stakeholders from both public and private sectors, including government representatives, development partners, international & national oil companies, service providers and decision makers from the industry among others. The event is a high-level policy dialogue and professional networking forum for key stakeholders in the African and international oil and gas industry, focusing on the sustainability of local content regulatory and institutional frameworks and policies that have so far been implemented by African Oil & Gas Producing Countries to enable and advance local economic development and national industry participation.
ALC2019 will promote knowledge exchange and showcase the best practical solutions for sustainable national industry participation and domestic value addition through local enterprise, contractor and supplier value chain development. It will also explore opportunities for collaboration in regional local content for the development of regional supply chain within the oil and gas value chain in Africa.
The success of the first two editions in Luanda, Angola, has made ALC2019 a must-attend for industry stakeholders, who want to keep abreast of local content policies and opportunities in Africa.
