Welcoming over 300 senior executives working and investing in North Africa into one room, to share thought leadership, strengthen existing relationships and build new business.

Now in its 12th year the Assembly has established itself as the region’s premier gathering for the whole North Africa region, with renowned industry leaders and the most successful and active investors.

Our North African Legacy

The Council can date back its activities in the MENA region for more than two decades: it has hosted this gathering previously in Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.

The Energy Council commitment to Africa is unmatched having been founded on the continent itself.
We haven’t forgotten our roots, despite now being the world’s largest network for senior executives in energy, finance and investment. We currently serve more than 4000 members in more than 800 African companies. No other international network has the level of depth and local knowledge than the Council in Africa.

2017 Success Stories

“We are firmly dedicated to exploration in North Africa and as such, we need to seek good opportunities to network with peers on the issues facing us. By sponsoring the event, we felt that we would attract attendees to have a good word with us.”

Mike Hoffmann

Exploration Manager, Anadarko Petroleum

“I was extremely satisfied with the North Africa Oil & Gas Summit. I found the event to be well organized with high level attendants that were relevant to my business. It was easy to network and the information provided was up-to-date and interactive.”

Pickard Trepess

Marketing Manager, Sintex Mineral

“I can certainly say the North Africa Oil & Gas Summit was a success for us. We had a high volume of meetings off the back of it, actually the highest in 3 to 4 years and this is why it wasn’t a hard decision to decide to sponsor again.”
