The Changing African Downstream Landscape

Africa’s downstream sector is changing fast. Product demand has surged by a third in just ten years, countries across the continent are adopting cleaner fuel specifications while investments in infrastructure have proven to be game-changers. A further 30% increase in demand forecast by 2030, coupled with new refinery projects and a trend of improving regulation have made the African downstream sector a vibrant place and an increasingly attractive growth market for a broad range of players.

CITAC’s interactive workshops on the African downstream will give you the keys to be an active player of these relevant developments, discussing business cases and covering topical subjects, such as:

  • Global Market Developments Impacting Africa – James McCullagh
  • African Supply & Demand, Imports & Exports – Elitsa Georgieva
  • African Oil Product Specifications: Progress and Challenges – Jeremy Parker
  • Supply Chain Optimisation: To Make or Break a Project – Bernardo Costa
  • IMO 2020: Does It Matter for Africa? – James McCullagh
  • Price Structures: What Price is Right? – James McCullagh & Elitsa Georgieva
  • How to Negotiate with a Finance Counterparty – Guillaume Leenhardt & Paul Eardley-Taylor

You will learn about refining, distribution, marketing and financing of African downstream oil and will share experiences with pan-African and international companies.

The CITAC African Downstream Workshops offer you an unparalleled forum for networking with key players in the African downstream sector, including refiners, marketers, national oil companies, regulators, international and local traders, banks, storage and distribution companies, and more.

CITAC African Downstream Workshops will held in at the Century City Conference Center in  Cape Town on 28th and 29th March 2019.
