PETAN’s SAIPEC 2022 to Showcase In-country Opportunities, Discuss Future Fuels and Energy Transition in Africa
By Ndubuisi Micheal Obineme
The sixth Sub Saharan Africa International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (SAIPEC), hosted by PETAN, will showcase in-country opportunities and discuss the future of oil and gas in Africa with emphasis on the future fuels and global energy transition agenda.
SAIPEC 2022 will return to the Eko Convention Centre in Lagos on 22 – 24 February 2022 for its 6th edition, as the only oil and gas event held in partnership with the entire Sub Saharan African petroleum industry.
The event organizer of SAIPEC, Global Event Partners (GEP), has added a new networking platform to the event known as, energy advance, which will allow all the participants – whether delegates, speakers or indeed exhibitors, to take part in the event, utilize networking and virtually showcase their products and offerings.
Paul Gilbert, Director of Global Event Partners (GEP), said, “All participants to our events that take place physically will receive a one-year subscription to energy advance, enabling them to network pre, during, and post-event via the embedded chat and video functionality, plus also watch our entire catalog of events virtually, should they be affected by travel restrictions and access lots of exclusive news and other content.
“For SAIPEC 2022 in particular, we have seen over 80% of the exhibition floor plan already committed to, with a mix of new and existing companies coming on board. Sponsorship has increased also and new partners are joining regularly, looking to cement their position at Africa’s largest gathering of the energy value chain.
“SAIPEC 2022 will have a full week of activity, starting with the Regulator Roundtable on the 21st, three full days of conference and exhibition, concluding with the PETAN Golf tournament, now in its second year.
“SAIPEC has always set precedence for an honest debate so the continent can develop and progress. Rather than focusing a whole topic on the energy transition, this is seeded throughout from how the NOC’s and regulators need to adapt their strategies to the IOC and independents sessions and into day two’s local content discussion.”
