Prospects and Realities for North Africa’s Downstream Development

Listen to industry experts discuss the true opportunities and realities for the region as well as international investment prospects and how these compare to other emerging markets

Libya Prospects and Realities

While the question everyone is asking is ‘when is the right time to invest in Libya?’, gain perspective and insight from NOC Libya representatives and other leading experts from the region to discuss this query further and better understand risks and challenges in Libya.

Looking East and West

With increasing competition from the Middle East and new projects emerging in West Africa, join this panel discussion to investigate successful strategies from both regions. Integration, private refinery funding and import/export of products will be amongst the points discussed to deliberate whether North Africa can compete on a global scale.
