AEC’s Invest In African Energy Paris Forum
Other Events Information
The African Energy Chamber will host the French leg of its European investment roadshow, the Invest in African Energy Forum, in Paris on 1 June.
The African Energy Chamber (AEC) is taking its Invest in African Energy Forum to Paris for the next leg of its investment tour. Taking place on June 1 at the Westin Paris Vendome, the Paris edition will serve as the premier networking function for European investors and African policymakers, with the event showcasing partnership opportunities, strengthening Africa-Europe relations and kickstarting new developments in pursuit of global energy security.
Hot on the heels of three European receptions that took place London, Oslo and Frankfurt, as well as a UAE event held in Dubai, the Paris forum will not only open new opportunities for Europe-Africa collaboration but will advance already forged ties between African countries and French-based investors and companies. During the forum, discussions will be centered on financing African energy projects; developing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for both African and European markets; and the role renewable energy and green hydrogen will continue to play in industrializing and electrifying Africa.
For years, France has played an instrumental role in helping Africa unlock the full potential of its energy sector, providing capital, and developing large-scale projects while facilitating technology and skills transfer. From ambitious upstream campaigns to developing key solar, wind, and hydropower assets, France continues to strengthen its relationship with a suite of African countries.
On the oil front, companies such as TotalEnergies have been key in advancing E&P projects across almost every oil-rich country in Africa. Having operated in major producing countries such as Angola, Libya and Nigeria for a number of years, the company is opening up other promising markets in Africa by developing projects such as the Lake Albert Development in Uganda; an ambitious exploration campaign offshore South Africa; and a major discovery in Namibia, among many others. The company is also taking strides towards developing natural gas reserves through projects such as the Mozambique LNG project and South Africa’s Luiperd and Brulpadda finds. French-based E&P company Perenco has also been advancing its footprint in Africa, acquiring assets in Chad, Congo, DRC, and Cameroon while driving large-scale developments such as the Gabon LNG project.
