The event is set to take place at the Eko Convention Center in Lagos, Nigeria, from February 13–15, 2024.

SAIPEC, organized by the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) in collaboration with NCDMB, Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC), and NNPC Limited, carries the theme “The Next Steps: Accelerating African Content,” as highlighted in a press statement shared with EnergyPlanets.

The statement read, “Over five days, the full SAIPEC programme features numerous B2B networking and partnership opportunities. Beginning on 12 February and preceding the main conference discussions start at the 3rd African Content Series seminar, again hosted by NCDMB and PETAN, and attended by a select number of NOCs, IOCs, regulators, governments, and private sector representatives.

“The conference programme features over 100 speakers from across Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Mozambique, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Republic of Congo, Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Niger, Guinea, Uganda, South Sudan, Islamic Republic of Mauritania and Senegal. SAIPEC will highlight the future of the energy, oil, and gas industry in Sub-Saharan Africa with special focus sessions on regional collaboration and SAIPEC’s Diversity, Equality and Inclusion and Youth Empowerment programmes.

“The free-to-attend SAIPEC exhibition runs from 13 – 15 February, featuring a record number of exhibitors that span various companies specialising in services across the industry.

“Finally, a plethora of networking opportunities underpins the main conference and exhibition proceedings including the SPEC Awards, drinks receptions and PETAN’S golf day as the concluding event on 15 February.”

Positioned as a pivotal player in shaping the trajectory of the region’s energy, oil, and gas resources, the conference will present lucrative project opportunities worth billions of dollars across Africa.

Emphasizing local content, SAIPEC annually brings together over 30 National Oil Companies (NOCs), International Oil Companies (IOCs), governments, and regulators. Anticipating over 6,000 attendees from 51 countries, this year’s event is poised to be the most extensive and impactful yet.”
