A panel that will focus on legislations enabling infrastructure development, new oil infrastructure projects in sub-Saharan Africa and on the improvement of storage and transport facilities for crude and oil products is set to take place at Argus Africa Oil Storage and Logistics conference on October 11th to 13th in Cape Town, South Africa.

Namibia’s Minister of Works and Transport, Alpheus Naruseb and Swaziland’s Minister of Natural Resources and Energy, Jabulile Mashwama will join the panel alongside additional ministers that are yet to be confirmed.

Senior executives from Botswana Oil Limited, Pinnacle Oil and Gas, Rahamaniyya Group, Total, AECOM, Namcor, Galana, Transnet National Ports Authority, Engen, Gabon Special Economic Zone, Standard Bank and other stakeholder organisations have confirmed their attendance. The fourth iteration of the annual conference will be supported by the South African Petroleum Industry Association (SAPIA) and Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative (MCLI).

Persistently low freight rates have opened up oil product imports to Africa and cleaner fuel specifications are gradually aligning African nations’ product standards with those elsewhere.

With intra-Africa trade comprising only 15pc of total African trade and the potential delay of African Union’s Continental Free Trade Area, domestic and international businesses seek to accelerate the security of products and development of infrastructure through other collaboration.

Organisations from across the storage and logistics supply chain are invited to join the conference and shape the development of infrastructure to support the movement and storage of crude and oil products across sub-Saharan Africa.
