Driving Investment

With a focus on driving investment in Angola, AOG 2022 represents the premier venue for getting deals signed in Angola and the southern-African region, thus expanding commercial opportunities for the country’s energy future.

As the country strives to capitalize on its immense natural resources and achieve fuel-independency through large-scale investments within the entire energy value chain, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in projects that drive an effective and equitable business environment.

Additionally, plans by Angola’s Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas to strengthen the country’s oil and gas refining capacity to meet domestic energy demand while reducing energy imports and maximizing the monetization of energy resources for regional and global markets, new projects are on the horizon as the country seeks to capitalize on its newfound position as Africa’s largest oil producer.
