SIEPA 2019

As already announced, the 17th International Exhibition of Energy and Petroleum in Africa will take place in Dakar, at the King Fahd Hotel, on June 11, 12 and 13. This exhibition, which has been organized for several years by ADEA and ASDEA (Association Sénégalaise pour le Développement de l'Energie en Afrique), will benefit this year from the support of AMETRADE, which successfully organizes numerous events in Africa, in particular the International Mining Exhibition in Dakar. Synergies between the 3 organizations will increase SIEPA's visibility and attract more participants, stakeholders and exhibitors. As usual, SIEPA will bring together ministers, administrative officials, companies, specialists, professors and students. All energy sectors: oil, gas, electricity, renewable energies will be represented. Sessions will be devoted to local content, the use of oil revenues.

The energy sector in Africa is in full development. Oil and gas discoveries followed one another. After the major discoveries in East Africa (gas in Mozambique and Tanzania, oil in Uganda, Kenya), oil and gas discoveries in Senegal and Mauritania, the succession of oil discoveries in Ghana are at the heart of the news. At the same time, progress in electrification in many countries is impressive. Several countries in sub-Saharan Africa are expected to achieve electricity for all by 2030. Renewables and natural gas will facilitate progress.

In parallel with our Salon, the "flagship" of our activities, ADEA continues its cycle of annual conferences. On January 17 we welcomed David Bleasdale, (CITAC and the Association of African Refiners) and Babajide Soyode for an exciting debate on the refining situation in Africa and the need for quality products. Mr. Soyode provided an update on the construction of the Dangote refinery in Lagos, which will be one of the largest in the world.

The next conferences will be devoted on 16 April to electricity development and in June to the role of NGOs

Best regards to all
