We are delighted to confirm the attendance and participation of NOC Libya’s high ranked officials. With NOC Libya not having attended an international event since the “civil disruptions” took place in Tripoli and Benghazi, this attendance is testament to the summit truly representing the entire North African oil and gas industry

“I can certainly say the North
Africa Summit was a success
for us. We had a high volume
of meetings off the back of it,
actually the highest in 3 to 4 years
and this is why it wasn’t a hard
decision to decide to sponsor

It was easy to network and the
information provided was
up-to-date and interactive.”
