Dr Duncan Clarke, Chairman & CEO, Global Pacific & Partners, says: “No global player or emerging Independent with an international footprint, or even fast-growing state oil company, can afford to underrate this world-class Western African play – which offers a suite of technical and corporate options: abundant acreage, farmins, acquisitions, bid rounds, new exploration frontiers, a consistent record of oil/gas discoveries, fast-breaking plays such as in the Transform Margin, rising oil/gas reserves, attractive contract terms, competitive potential in LNG ventures across several countries, and even large undeveloped resources in heavy oil/oil sands, and emerging shale gas/oil ventures”.

The 19th Western Africa Oil, Gas & Energy 2013, begins with the 9th Western Africa Strategy Briefing on Monday 22 April 2013 (Separately Bookable) and is presented by Dr Duncan Clarke, Chairman & CEO, Global Pacific & Partners, a leading global strategist, speaker and author on the fast-changing world oil and gas industry. It provides key insights on the oil, gas and energy game, built over 30 years of oil and gas research. It tracks shifting energy maps in Africa South of the Equator, providing seasoned highlights.

“Western Africa” covers a vast oil and gas exploration zone, one of the world’s richest and most promising for ventures- from Morocco to the Cape, including island states, with an enormous offshore zone and hydrocarbon potential, alongside prospective deepwater blocks, ultra-deep opportunities only to date marginally explored, Exclusive Economic Zones, and promising pre-salt potential analogous to Brasil, plus numerous existing onshore basins (producing and immature, as well as frontier) and a huge interior domain across 27 countries – in effect, fully one half of Africa and the continental land mass of over 30, 000 sq km.
