The East African Community (EAC) has been holding the East African Petroleum Conference and Exhibition biennially (once every two years) since 2003 to promote exploration, development and production of oil and gas. The Conference offers a wide range of technical presentations reflecting developments in the oil and gas industry in East Africa and around the world. The Conference provides a forum for discussing the policy, legal and fiscal framework and the overall business environment prevailing in the region. It gives stakeholders in the oil and gas sector an opportunity to interact with senior government officials and decision makers from the EAC Partner States.
This year’s conference, under the theme “EAST AFRICAN REGION – The Emerging Destination For Investment and Future Supply of Oil and Gas for Sustainable Development””, brought together over 900 delegates from the Petroleum industry across East Africa and the world. The participants were drawn from National and International Oil Companies, Government Institutions from East African and neighbouring states, petroleum service companies, non-oil and gas institutions, academic institutions, international geoscientific journals, and the media among others.
