About the Conference

Monday 11 February 2019 - Tuesday 12 February 2019

The oil and gas industry has entered a new path, where industry leaders are paving the way for a brighter and robust future. From new discoveries, investments, downstream diversification and integration, data-driven operations and digital innovations through to human capital and talent management, it is undoubtedly a new era where leaders of today are embracing a new array of opportunity and technology that will put in place a stronger, more resilient oil and gas industry.

It’s against this backdrop that EGYPS 2019 Strategic Conference has been developed. With its enhanced global content, the strategic programme will host dedicated C-level Upstream, Midstream and Downstream Global Leadership Sessions, CEO Strategic Roundtables and an even more regional focus on the Mediterranean and North African energy sector.

This year, we have also increased the number of CEO Investment and Finance Briefings dedicated to Egypt’s IPOs, oil and gas project financing, JVs and M&As.

Including live interviews, CEO Roundtables, panel discussions and CEO Investment and Finance Briefings, the EGYPS 2019 Strategic Conference will focus on North Africa and the Mediterranean’s journey in delivering the energy needs of tomorrow.
