CITAC Education Series

CITAC Webinar: Education Series
on the African downstream energy sector

The pandemic brought much of the developed world to a standstill but African markets continued to see rapid development. Africa’s growing population and economies raise critical questions about how the rising energy requirements will be met.

Changing Demand, tightening Specifications, Energy Transition & LPG development, and Infrastructure Project Financing are issues that affect all players in the downstream: regulators, governments, refiners, importers, marketers, retailers, transporters.

Across four interactive online sessions as part of ARDA WEEK, CITAC’s experts will deliver their latest research and insights to inform the actions and decisions of Africa’s downstream players as they navigate this changing landscape.

9.00 – 10.00
Overview of African Downstream Market Trends in the Global Context

African markets are supported by strong fundamentals, driving energy consumption. This session will highlight how the trends of rising imports, tightening specifications and shifting demand patterns fit into the global oil product supply chain and their outlooks.

10.00 – 11.00
Impact of Tighter Specifications on African Downstream Players
Air quality has become an increasingly pressing issue across the continent. As governments and industry work together to tackle the issue, adaptation along the value chain is inevitable. This session highlights the challenges and solutions for members of the downstream sector as they navigate these changes.

13.00– 14.00
Africa’s Energy Transition: is LPG the Solution?

Biomass continues to meet the bulk of Africa’s energy demands. A scalable, cleaner, robust and more sustainable alternative is needed today. This session addresses the options to support Africa’s Energy Transition and centres on the growing role of LPG in meeting this challenge.

14.00 – 15.00
Project finance in the African Downstream – Finding Bankable Projects
Africa presents a wealth of opportunities for investment. Growing demand, changing consumption patterns, and shifting specifications all require infrastructure investment, yet many projects fail to prove their bankability. This session addresses the challenge of matching viable projects with investors.
