The first of its kind in West Africa, the event premiered in 1996 in Nigeria to an international audience of delegates, exhibitors and partners. Borne out of a need to provide a networking and technical knowledge sharing platform in the West African Oil & Gas sector, this annual event has grown from humble beginnings into the Oil & Gas phenomenal event it is today.
The Offshore West Africa Conference has over its rich 20-year history been instrumental to the growth of the Oil & Gas Sector globally by delivering a first class networking platform in West Africa and continues to do so. To mention a few: The paradigm shift in the Nigerian Oil & Gas Sector from land and swamp operations to Offshore Oil & Gas Exploration and Production, with the major International Oil and Gas companies delving into the use of FPSOs (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading Vessels) as the ‘new way’ in offshore E&P (Exploration & Production) operations in the last 15 years.
The Offshore West Africa forum has also played a significant role in showcasing new and relevant technologies that have been instrumental to the discovery and development of new and major offshore Oil & Gas Fields in West Africa as was the case with the Ghanaian Oil & Gas industry when hydrocarbon deposits were discovered in commercial quantities in the last 10 years.
