Consultancy and industrial engineering company, Certex Angola, will be attending and participating as a bronze sponsor of this year’s edition of the Angola Oil & Gas (AOG) conference and exhibition – Angola’s biggest gathering for energy policymakers, companies and investors which will take place from November 29 to December 1 in Luanda.

As one of the most vibrant local companies serving the needs of the oil and gas industry in relation to lifting equipment and operations, the participation of Certex Angola at AOG 2022 will be crucial for highlighting the role service companies play in boosting the country’s oil and gas production, exploitation and monetization for energy security and economic growth.

Since its establishment to fill a gap for lifting, inspection and certification products across Angola’s oil and gas market, Certex Angola has played a crucial role in maximizing upstream activities in marginal, new and producing blocks in partnership with major operators – including ExxonMobil in Block 15 – and service providers across the southern African country’s expanding hydrocarbons industry.

Having emerged as the biggest oil producer in Africa, Angola is now eyeing the maximization of the country’s hydrocarbons industry to meet growing energy demand at home, across the continent and at global scale. In this regard, companies such as Certex Angola represent important players, optimizing upstream developments as the country turns into an exploration hub for global companies and massive discoveries such as TotalEnergies’ Cameia–Golfinho and Chissonga finds; bp’s PAJ; and Eni’s Agogo are developed and brought online.

As a bronze sponsor for AOG 2022, Certex Angola will participate in high-level panel discussions and meetings, promoting opportunities across Angola’s oil and gas upstream and midstream sectors and making a strong case for the role the country’s energy resources play in helping alleviate energy poverty, kickstart industrialization and drive long-term and sustainable socioeconomic growth in Africa.

For Certex Angola, which is currently targeting the diversification of its operations to expand its business portfolio, AOG 2022 represents the best platform for the company to promote its future prospects and sign game-changing deals with local, regional and global companies. Meanwhile for Angola, with the government currently prioritizing local content development across the oil and gas industry, market players like Certex Angola have and will continue to be crucial, driving socioeconomic development on the back of skills and knowledge transfer as well as national development programs conducted in partnership with local and international companies.

Under the theme, ‘Promoting an Inclusive, Attractive and Innovative Oil and Gas Industry in Angola’, AOG 2022 will host Certex Angola in exclusive networking sessions and technical workshops, shaping serious discussions around the best solutions to enhancing the country’s oil and gas market.
