Representing the premier African energy event, African Energy Week will promote and provide insight into the 6th edition of the Nigeria International Energy Summit, driving dialogue from Cape Town to Abuja.
From October 18-21 in Cape Town, government representatives, global financiers and public and private sector executives will convene at the 2022 edition of African Energy Week (AEW), driving Africa’s narrative on a just energy transition and making energy poverty history. With discussions largely centered on the role of oil and gas, financing exploration and production, accelerating large-scale green energy developments and improving energy security and socioeconomic growth in Africa, the event represents the foremost platform for discussions to be held and deals to be signed.
This year, AEW 2022 will kickstart dialogue that will be continued at other key events across the African continent. Notably, during the 6th edition of the Nigeria International Energy Summit (NIES) – taking place from April 16-20, 2023 at the International Conference Center Abuja – discussions will not only continue but be strengthened, with Nigerian stakeholders driving Nigeria’s position on African energy matters. As such, AEW 2022 will promote NIES 2023, providing key insight into the event and ensuring Africa’s energy future is explored across multiple events in Africa.
For its part, the NIES serves as the official oil and gas event of the Federal Government of Nigeria, uniting domestic and regional stakeholders for four days of intense discussions, presentations and networking. Next year’s edition will take place under the theme, Global Perspective for a Sustainable Energy Future, with the event hosted by the Ministry of Petroleum Resources and all of its parastatals on behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Now in its 6th edition, NIES 2023 is particularly significant as it will represent the valedictory edition of the current administration, with the administration set to present its scorecard in the energy sector as well as a roadmap for the next administration. As such, the event will feature high-level speakers spanning decision makers, industry leaders and stakeholders from both the public and private sectors. With the Special Guest of Honor being H.E. Muhammadu Buhari, President and Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forced of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the event is poised to be transformational for the Nigerian energy landscape.
“AEW 2022 is centered around driving investment and development across the entire African energy sector and value chain, and as such, has a mandate to support the efforts of African stakeholders to achieve their sectoral objectives. In this regard, AEW 2022 is proud to promote and support the 6th edition of the NIES, an event that is committed to driving new partnerships and deals that will place Nigeria on a path towards socioeconomic success,” states NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber.
At AEW 2022, event flyers and information will be distributed, ensuring African stakeholders are made aware of the biggest energy event in Nigeria. As one of the biggest oil producers in Africa, and a country with upwards of 200 trillion cubic feet of gas, significant prospects across the renewable energy landscape and new opportunities for mid- and downstream investors, the NIES will help drive the country into a new era of industry growth, and AEW 2022 will support it.
AEW 2022 is the AEC’s annual conference, exhibition and networking event. AEW 2022 unites African energy stakeholders with investors and international partners to drive industry growth and development and promote Africa as the destination for energy investments. Key organizations such as the African Petroleum Producers Organization, as well as African heavyweights including Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria, have partnered with AEW, strengthening the role the event will play in Africa’s energy future.
