NAIROBI, Kenya - March 5, 2014 - PRLog -- NAIROBI – Recent large and world-class gas discoveries in Mozambique and Tanzania, with potential for more to come, and commercial oil flows in Kenya, show the potential of the enormous exploration frontiers of Eastern Africa, both onshore and offshore. The impact of this resurgence is rebalancing the Africa oil-gas industry landscape into a wider continental oil and gas/LNG game, with potentially global consequences.

The 5th Eastern Africa Oil, Gas/LNG & Energy Conference 2014 provides unrivalled new insight into the upstream opportunities, open acreage, bid rounds, new ventures, oil/gas investments, key upstream players, and corporate/government strategies in this vast region of fifteen countries covering onshore and offshore potential, from Eritrea to South Africa, including across the Mascerene islands.

Over 350 senior executives attended the Conference in 2013, with 36 exhibitors, and over 90 delegates participated in the Strategy Briefing – with corporate/state players coming from over 40 countries on Six Continents including from inter alia: Kenya, Uganda, Moçambique, United Kingdom, Australia, Ethiopia, South Africa, United States of America, Canada, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, Madagascar, France, Germany, Tanzania, India, Spain, China, Netherlands, Egypt, Hong Kong, Russia, Ireland, Norway, Switzerland, Bahrain, Kuwait, l’Union des Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Poland, Sudan, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia

The Conference, the landmark meeting on Eastern Africa, is hosted annually by Global Pacific & Partners, in Nairobi, Kenya, including with the widely-acclaimed pre-Conference 5th Eastern Africa Strategy Briefing.  During the Strategy Briefing Dr Duncan Clarke, advisor to numerous companies and governments, and author of several historiography and economics books on Africa and its oil and gas future, provides key insights on the corporate upstream oil and gas game, governments and state oil firms and licensing agency strategies.

Following the 5th Eastern Africa Oil, Gas/LNG & Energy 2014 we will celebrate the 62nd PetroAfricanus Dinner to be held on 29th April.
