RSA House, London

Developing partnerships along the gas value chain

More than 100 senior executives from leading investors, project developers and other stakeholders are participating at our Africa Investment Exchange: Gas meeting in London on 5-6 April.

Sponsored by Actis, Azura Power Holdings and Globeleq and co-produced by CbI’s African Energy, AIX: Gas focuses on bringing upstream and LNG players together with power sector and downstream developers and investors for a frank discussion of project opportunities and investment issues affecting all stakeholders across the gas sector.

Proceedings will be held under the Chatham House Rule and are structured around interactive panel-led sessions.

The 2017 agenda focuses on:

Gas-fired IPPs – identifying sources of investment and understanding instruments that can catalyse private investment.
• Domestic production vs LNG imports
• Who has the most credible LNG export plans
Investing in the upstream
• Markets attracting investor interest, including Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana, Mozambique, Morocco, South Africa and Tanzania
• Developing gas distribution networks
Petrochemicals and industrial demand
• Pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, family offices – matching new investors to projects
