“Shaping the Future through Sustainable Local Content Policies”

Ghana to Host the 3rd Annual Africa Oil & Gas Local Content Sustainability Conference.

The third edition of the Africa Oil & Gas Local Content Sustainability Conference & Exhibition 2019 (ALCSS) will take place from 10 – 11 October 2019 at Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, Ghana. The Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) is the host National Oil Company (NOC), which will be highlighting the fact that it has achieved its strategy of becoming a stand-alone operator by 2019, and is supported by the Africa Petroleum Producers Organisation (APPO) and the Ministry of Energy, Ghana.

This edition of ALC is the third annual continent-wide policy response initiative that brings together decision makers and relevant stakeholders, with the key objective of promoting increased local participation in the supply chain of the oil & gas industry to achieve the transfer of skills, capacity and economic development.

The last two editions of the event were held in Luanda, Angola attracting nearly 600 attendees from 30 countries and featured technical site visits as well as best practice experiences from other emerging markets such as Malaysia.

The 3rd Edition the Africa Oil & Gas Local Content Sustainability Conference 2019 is running under the theme “Shaping the Future through Sustainable Local Content Policies”. The event will focus on the sustainability of local content regulatory and institutional frameworks that have so far been implemented by African Oil & Gas Producing countries to enable and advance local economic development.

The choice of Ghana was informed by the various policies and actions of the Ghana Government & Industry to encourage local content development and participation of the citizens in the oil and gas value chain, since the country joined the ranks of African oil producers.

ALC 2019 will feature technical exhibition alongside the main conference and will gather national, regional and international stakeholders from both public and private sectors, including government representatives, development partners, international & national oil companies, service providers and decision makers from the industry among others. The event is a high-level policy dialogue and professional networking forum for key stakeholders in the African and international oil and gas industry.
