  • Leading Africa’s Sustainable Resource Exploration: ReconAfrica Returns to AEW as Bronze Sponsor

Reconnaissance Energy Africa is participating at this year’s African Energy Week conference as a bronze sponsor.

Reconnaissance Energy Africa (ReconAfrica), is participating at the upcoming African Energy Week (AEW) 2023 conference – Africa’s premier event for the energy sector, scheduled for 16 – 20 October in Cape Town – as a bronze sponsor.

As a prominent independent player advancing Africa’s upstream and exploration objectives, ReconAfrica’s presence as a bronze sponsor at AEW 2023 underscores the event’s significance in shaping the African energy renaissance. It also reaffirms the company’s dedication to the responsible exploration of oil and gas resources, contributing to the sustainable development of African economies.

During the event, ReconAfrica’s representatives will engage in high-level panel discussions, shedding light on the firm’s contributions to the expansion of exploration and energy production in Africa. The company will also showcase strategic growth initiatives across the African market to potential global investors and partners.

As an escalating number of African nations strive to unlock their hydrocarbon potential, bolstering energy security, fostering industrialization and broadening export revenues, ReconAfrica has emerged as a steadfast and committed partner.

The company’s sustainable drilling approach in the Kavango Basin, complying with international and local petroleum and environmental regulations, positions it as a trusted energy explorer and a key energy transition partner.

In 2022, after increasing its participation in the Kavango Basin – having made its first oil and gas discovery in 2021 – ReconAfrica intensified its role in advancing Namibia’s industry expansion, updating its prospective resource estimate for the Damara Fold Belt gas project to 22.4 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of untapped gas. In July 2023, the firm received government approval to commence drilling 12 additional wells across Namibia, signaling its dedication to the sustainable growth of the country’s energy sector.

And now that the energy renaissance has taken center stage and increasing number of African countries including Namibia, Botswana, Uganda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe seeking to explore their hydrocarbons rich basins for energy resilience, the role of companies such as ReconAfrica continues to expand. AEW 2023 as the official platform where Africa’s energy matters and deals are discussed and optimized, represents the best platform for ReconAfrica representatives to network, discuss and sign industry changing deals with prominent global players.

“ReconAfrica has not only harnessed Namibia’s untapped oil and gas potential, elevating the nation to a global exploration hub, but it has also established a benchmark for excellence in demonstrating how international players can maximize Africa’s onshore energy resources for both energy security and environmental sustainability. As Africa places increased emphasis on the sustainable development and responsible management of its energy resources, ReconAfrica’s role in fostering the African energy renaissance continues to grow,” stated NJ Ayuk, the Executive Chairman of the AEC.

AEW is the AEC’s annual energy event uniting African governments and policymakers with global investors and project developers. Taking place in Cape Town under the theme, ‘The African Energy Renaissance: Prioritizing Energy Poverty, People, the Planet, Industrialization and Free Markets,’ AEW 2023 represents the biggest gathering of energy stakeholders on the continent. AEW 2023 is where deals are signed. For more information, visit www.aecweek.com.
