South America Energy Week

&
São Paulo, Brazil

12 – 14 November 2018

The only CEO-driven platform to compare energy investment opportunities across the continent

What is South America Energy Week?

South America Energy Week is a 4-in-1 platform for 400+ C-level energy executives, their partners and investors. It is split between two locations: 12- 13 November in Buenos Aires focusing on upstream, midstream and power/renewables sectors and 14 of November in Sao Paulo covering energy projects across the value chain.

In 2018, we will be focusing on “the highest ROI projects in the energy sector on the continent”. Whatever your business focus is –  upstream, midstream or power – South America Energy Week will answer your specific questions.

Comparing Energy Investment Opportunities Across The Continent

  • Debt markets and project financing in Argentina, Colombia and emerging energy players
  • Supply/demand globally, product pricing and policy affecting project development
  • Where do investors (PE, Development banks, Funds) see the biggest ROI in the short and mid-term?
  • O&G projects comparison across South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia
  • Brazil: evaluation of the pre-salt auctions by the winners – early lessons learned
