We wish to advise our annual 19th Africa Oil Week/Africa Upstream 2012 in Cape Town is scheduled for 29th October - 2nd November 2012, where we shall again host the world's leading deal-making and senior-level networking oil/gas industry in Africa, for Africa.
Over 900 Delegates attended our event last month (November, 2011), with 80 Presentations made during the Week, Ministers and Government Delegations in attendance and many State/ National Oil Company players on the Program and with a record number of Exhibitions.
With the exceptional feedback and appreciation received for this year¹s event, we plan to continue developing further the Program for 2012 in its quality, depth and scope - retaining the Meeting¹s reputation as one of the top world-class Conferences in the global Calendar.
