15 September 2020 to 15 September 2020


Carbon in transition

The pace of renewables integration into Africa’s electricity supply industry and global climate change concerns were driving a reevaluation of the continent's long-term energy mix prior to Covid-19. However, there is a real need in Africa for gas to play a continued significant role as the ‘transition fuel’ and to supply power plants, industrial and other users over the coming decade (and beyond). The opening session will thus set out the case for gas in AIX’s distinctively analytical but straight speaking manner.

12h00 to 13h30 (BST)

Part 1: African gas trends

Starting with results from the African Energy Survey, asking: what the current Covid-19 disruption means for businesses along Africa's gas value chain, the long-term challenge facing the industry posed by global carbon transition and the future shape of global industries (including LNG export prospects, FLNG, gas-to-power schemes etc). This will open a debate on how changing trends in policy-making and investment are impacting on gas producers.

Part 2: African gas policy

Government and regulator’s perspectives on industrialisation programmes, gas masterplans and local content strategies. What do administrations want from gas schemes? In the carbon transition are they at risk of finding themselves with stranded assets?
