The landmark event, which ends on 21 October, is under the theme: “Exploring and investing in Africa’s energy future while driving an enabling environment.”
The aim of this year’s theme is to consolidate the event’s mandate to make energy poverty history by 2030 into an actionable agenda. Key energy stakeholders and industry players from Africa and beyond are expected in Cape Town to make the conference a success.
The four-day conference will feature Ghana’s Energy minister Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, who is expected to share some highlights on building on the successes of the Jubilee and TEN offshore discoveries, and how private sector involvement in the oil and gas industry can be enabled to develop a thriving and successful upstream and downstream industry that brings wealth and
growth to Ghana.
The Board chairman of the GNPC Freddie Blay will lead a delegation from the GNPC, participating in a number of industry-focused panel sessions and highlighting the latest developments and innovations being undertaken by the national oil company to revamp the country’s oil and gas market.
The CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation Opoku Ahweeneh Danquah will also address the issue of securing capital in the current financial landscape. Other key speakers include the CEO of the National Petroleum Authority Dr Mustapha Hamid, the CEO of the Petroleum Commission Egbert Faibille Jnr and CEO of Ghana Gas Dr Ben Asante among other major captains of industry on the African continent. Delegates, ministries, African and global industry leaders and speakers from the energy, oil, and gas sector are also expected to grace the occasion.
The Africa Energy Week will showcase the best of what Africa’s energy has to offer through innovative exhibitions; unique networking sessions where investors can be introduced to African opportunities; and provide key meeting forums where deals will be signed that will help transform the African energy sector.
Aboagye-Wiafe, who doubles as the host of flagship energy programme Energy 101 on Asaase 99.5 Accra, said he is thrilled by the opportunity to participate in the high level Africa Energy platform, and emphasised that it will not only enhance his profile and knowledge in the energy space, but also raise the level of Energy 101 on the global pedestal, by increasing the visibility of the programme through exclusive interviews with some of the continent’s key energy stakeholder attendees.
Aboagye-Wiafe has been consistently hosting Energy 101 since 7 October 2020 and has featured a number of the country’s major upstream and downstream sector players on the show.
“I am delighted to be part of the 2022 Africa Energy Week in Cape Town, especially because it coincides with the second anniversary of Energy 101. It will certainly shed more light on my perspectives of the global energy industry,” he said.
The broadcast journalist thanked some petroleum organisations who in one way or the other made it possible for him to participate in the event in South Africa.
