GDS International has excellent initiative and has really promoted development for Africa and made a difference. The performance of staff was quite outstanding.”
Daniel Maggs, NG Oil and Gas Africa Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the event, says: “I’m really excited about the seventh annual Next Generation Oil & Gas Africa Summit. GDS International has managed to secure a superb line-up of decision makers from the majors, independents and NOCs from across the African sub-continent who will gather at the Arabella Western Cape Hotel, Hermanus, to discuss the key challenges currently facing in industry. From Tullow Oil’s ambitions in Kenya and Ethiopia, to Sonangol’s pre-salt challenges in Angola, the summit will provide the perfect platform for solution providers to help address these key issues.
