The global energy crisis has highlighted the need for a more secure and diverse supply across the world. In sub-Saharan Africa, continued energy challenges act as a severe constraint on overall development, gas has been identified as a potential solution but what are the real opportunities?

Natural gas is expected to be the main source of our future energy, with its greatest advantage being that it creates half the carbon dioxide emissions of coal. The lower prices of renewables and their quick installation, while limiting emissions in the short term, make it an attractive option for stabilizing the path to renewables. Natural gas is one of the most affordable and reliable sources of energy, and systems that impact energy security are in need of innovation.

With lower carbon emissions, natural gas is a potential option for a renewable and efficient energy supply. In countries throughout Africa, renewables are key to promoting natural gas as a resource. As a recent UN report has stated, biomass, coal, oil, and other fuels will not be enough to power Africa’s future.

Mr. Mele will be joined by the following panelists:

Benoit de la Fouchardiere, Group General Manager, Perenco
Eberechukwu Oji, CEO, ND Western
Nina Koch, Head of Africa, Equinor
Ademola Adeyemi- Bero, Managing Director, First E&P
Sop Ideriah, Managing Director Nigeria & West Africa Countries, Schlumberger
