GDS International Raises the Bar Once Again for Oil and Gas Executives With its NG O&G Africa Summit in September
BRISTOL, England, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
On 25-27 September 2012, the Le Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra, Ghana, will play host to a 65-strong consortium of C-level executives from small, mid and large cap oil and gas producers attending the latest Next Generation Oil and Gas Summit (NG O&G). Positioned at the very pinnacle of their industry, this year's Summit promises to be the most well respected and best-attended event for the Oil and Gas industry in Africa for 2012.
Top C-level executives will be present to discuss cutting-edge business challenges, ranging from innovative operational and plant management, through to disruptive and emerging technologies, and drilling and data management solutions to name but a few.
The summit combines high-level roundtable discussions with next generation technology solutions that, together with Summit Director of Next Generation Oil & Gas, Daniel Maggs, have been championed by the summit's very own Advisory Board - The NG20.
Included within the Summit's senior executive delegation are Austen Oniwon, Group MD for Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation; Tullow Oil's Head of Projects, Roger Swaine; Francisco Lopes De Cunha, Block Chairman, Blocks 20, 36 & 37, Sonangol; Addax Petroleum/Sinopec's GM of Production, Emmanue Ukegbu; and Ablerto DeCarvalho, Executive Director at The ASGA.
Raphael Awoseyin, Chief Engineering and Technology Officer for Oando, attended last year's event in South Africa, and was specifically taken aback by the quality of the delegation, stating: "I'm really impressed because these attendees are very respected people in their fields - and are quite possibly the best in the industry."
Conflating this, Daniel Maggs, the Summit's Director, believes the summit is perfectly positioned to exceed expectations once again, saying: "Last year's NG Oil & Gas Africa Summit was exceptional. We were fortunate enough to introduce two specific parties to one another, resulting in one of the biggest deals for the Namibian region at the time, and we didn't think we could top that. That was until we started preparing for this year's Summit. From pre-event Advisory Board meetings with the best in the region helping to sculpt our programme - to the highest quality delegation we've seen since the summit's inception - 2012's Summit promises to break the mould once more and continue to serve the African region with industry-leading content and ROI."
The event has been designed specifically for forward-thinking, C-level executives in the African Oil & Gas arena, drawing on experiences and discussing the challenges facing the sector. The NGO&G Summit will offer comprehensive workshops, panel discussions on major industry issues, and one-to-one meetings to give delegates the opportunity to meet with business analysts and solution providers to discuss strategy and technology demands in a rapidly evolving business climate.
Key to this dynamic is the Summit's pivotal sponsors - including, Expro Group, Fairfield-Nodal, Capstone, Oceaneering, NXT Energy Services and Kreuz Subsea amongst a host of other industry-leading providers.
