/EIN Presswire/ Our 11th Southern Africa Energy Week 2010 will take place over the 8-10 February 2010, at the Sandton Sun Hotel, Johannesburg, South Africa.

This Energy Week includes Presentations from senior executives from key Governments, leading Companies and National Oil Companies, as well as state and private energy utilities, incorporating separately bookable events, providing a timely, in-depth management assessment for decision-makers on key strategic shifts that impact all Governments, companies, investors, financiers, and service/supply industries within Africa’s most energy-critical region.

The Week includes keynote Presentations from senior oil/gas and energy executives, a unique Strategy Briefing on Southern Africa Energy, the 29th PetroAfricanus Dinner on The Highveld, (with Guest Speaker: Andrew Windham, Managing Dircetor, Tullow Oil Africa), plus Sponsor and networking opportunities.

The large and growing Southern African oil, gas and energy/coal complex – including future fuels in the form of additional Gas-to Liquids, Coal-Bed Methane and CTL, eventual LNG, biofuels, ethanol and renewables – has created a larger and more integrated market to underpin economic growth and future development. This new and dynamic shape to energy supply complements existing upstream capacity in offshore oil, onshore gas, pipeline networks for crude and product, plus limited nuclear energy, as well as synfuels generated by established producers. In many Southern African countries old/new exploration and development ventures in oil/gas are moving forward and upstream projects are higher on the corporate agenda, with new acreage leasing, and drilling, plus targets such as heavy oil development based on large proven reserves.

Our new book by Duncan Clarke, Crude Continent: The Struggle for Africa’s Oil Prize (Profile Books, London, 2008) will be available at the Conference.

Global Pacific & Partners, a leading private advisory firm, has over 30 years experience in African oil and gas, in research and advisory practice, as well as being the world’s leading Conference organiser on the African oil/gas and energy industry (sub-Saharan and Maghreb) for over two decades. www.petro21.com

It tracks shifting maps in Africa South of the Equator, for 21 countries, providing seasoned insights unique to Global Pacific & Partners.
