Reshaped and enhanced in 2016, the Forum has 40 speakers, providing an unparalleled corporate insight into current and emerging exploration plays and capital development projects, corporate E&P strategies in-place, the winners and losers, and the unlocking of Africa’s large and yet-to-find hydrocarbon reserves.
