Africa Oil & Power has announced the launch of the Mozambique Gas &Power eventbilled for March 8 to 9, 2021, where it will work closely with local partners and the private sector to tell the story of Mozambique’s rich future as a Liquefied Natural Gas player.
The event will offer training and workshops to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises entering the gas and power sector, as well as gather stakeholders and potential investors to promote broad-based economic development through energy.
According to the acting Chief Executive Officer, James Chester, AOPwill host the first ever Mozambique Gas & Power Conference and Exhibition in Maputo, in partnership with the African Energy Chamber and Attitude HR.
Under the theme ‘Leveraging LNG: Building A Prosperous Mozambique,’ the event will focus on investment, downstream diversification, local capacity building and SMEs, and empowering women through the global Equalby30 initiative, as well as teach them to mitigate the challenges ahead, as the nation aims to be one of the top 10 LNG producers worldwide.
Chester said, “At AOP, we strive to tell the African energy story and attract investment into the energy sector. We have gathered industry leaders in African countries like South Sudan, Angola, South Africa and Equatorial Guinea, and in 2021 we will bring global investors and policy-makers in oil and gas, and power, to Mozambique.
“This endeavour requires close cooperation and coordination among local businesses, national governments, financial institutions, international energy firms, international energy agencies and industrial players. It is imperative that this broad range of players find a reliable and frequent forum for meeting, discussing, innovating and closing deals.”
Workshops, training and certification programmes for local businesses and entrepreneurs, a vital component of the event, will be held on March 10.
AOP will work with all actors in the Mozambican gas and power sectors, across government and private sector, to define opportunities and help new and existing investors make headway in the market.
