Held under the auspices of the DRC Ministry of Hydrocarbons, this inaugural event aims to be the region’s most prominent power and oil & gas event to attract regional and global industry stakeholders, investors, banks, equipment and service providers to invest in the country and region.

What to expect at DRC Power, Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition 2019

DRC Power, Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition has separate 2 days conference, with free-to-attend exhibition, hosting the region’s leading companies & technology providers as well as post conference site-tours.

Power and Oil & Gas Industry in DRC

DRC has been synonymous with mining over the last few years thanks to its global dominance of cobalt supply which is a key component in the lithium-ion batteries that power electronic vehicles (EV) and electric cars.

Beyond this EV boom, DRC is a country with tremendous market potential for energy, power and oil & gas companies given its low rural and urban energy access rates and growing energy demand from mining companies. Besides the Grand Inga dam which will be the world’s largest dam once completed, other upcoming major developments in the country include the Manono project, Africa’s largest full off-grid solar power project and new exploratory blocks with significant oil potential in its 3 sedimentary basins being offered in 2019 for major oil companies.
