The Changing African Downstream Landscape

With fast-paced population growth, dynamic economic conditions and ever-growing infrastructure and regulatory requirements, the African downstream sector is a happening place. With demand 25% higher than a decade ago, a number of infrastructure projects under way, and growing momentum for cleaner air, improved product specifications and climate change prevention action, the next decade promises to be at least as dynamic as the past one. The sector continues to attract increasing attention from international investors, mergers & acquisitions companies and international organisations.

CITAC’s interactive workshops on the African downstream energy sector will give you the insights and discussions to enable you to be an active player in these dynamic 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 Refining in the New Decade Jeremy Parker
• LPG Dynamics and Uptake in Sub-Saharan Africa Bernardo Costa
• Supply Chain Optimisation – Case Study Bruce Hutchison
• Climate Change and the Energy Mix: Challenges and Opportunities in Africa James McCullagh & Elitsa Georgieva
• Financing Solutions for African Oil and Gas Companies Guillaume Leenhardt & Paul Eardley-Taylor

You will learn about refining, distribution, marketing and financing developments in the African downstream energy sector 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 sector, including refiners, marketers, national oil companies, regulators, international and local traders, banks, storage and distribution companies, and more.
