About the Summit

The oil and gas industry has become crucial for the survival of the global economy despite the clean energy transition goals set forth by various nations. In the coming decades, oil and natural gas will continue to remain important commodities driving global markets and economic development.

The recent worldwide lockdown brought the world to a standstill, creating ripples across all industries, yet generating opportunities in untapped markets. Likewise, the energy industry is revisiting its business and investment strategies to ensure market equilibrium whilst meeting investor demands and stakeholder confidence.

These incidents have placed considerable responsibilities on the shoulders of global energy-focused finance and investment leaders who continue to strive to ensure business continuity and profitability.

The second edition of the EGYPS Finance & Investment Summit gathers global leaders to emphasise the magnitude of developing innovative governance, investment and cost management models for the energy value chain to overcome future economic turbulences whilst ensuring global energy security.

Fully supported by and in alignment with the objectives of the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, the inaugural Global Finance and Investment Awards will recognise senior finance leaders in the global energy industry for their contribution to the business as well as leading financial institutions for their continuous support of the global energy industry.

As Egypt develops its vast oil and gas reserves, new projects and new opportunities arise for oil and gas majors to tap into. As such, companies look to invest and develop these projects to further expand their portfolios and market position. New financing methods are also becoming available, such as different lending options, IPOs and access to different sources of capital.
