Amb. Liberat MfumukekoOn behalf of the East African Community (EAC), I extend a warm invitation to you to the 8th East African Petroleum Conference and Exhibition 2017 (EAPCE’17) which will be held at the Le Panoramique Hotel in Bujumbura, Burundi, from 7th to 9th June, 2017.
 
The East African Petroleum Conference and Exhibition (EAPCE) is a biennial event organized by the EAC and hosted on a rotational basis by the six Partner States of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.  Held since 2003, EAPCE attracts stakeholders in the oil and gas sector from the East African Region and globally for informative and stimulating discussions on topical issues in the sector. 

Similarly, EAPCE’17 is expected to provide a forum for dialogue for all players in the Petroleum industry regionally and internationally. It will provide unique networking opportunities with government, private sector, regional organizations, academia, technology developers, investors and civil society.

Recent discoveries of oil and gas in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania in addition to the existing oil industry in South Sudan have positioned East Africa as the world’s most promising frontier for petroleum exploration and development. 
 
Technical papers and posters based on the conference theme “East Africa – an Emerging Hotspot for Oil and Gas Exploration, Infrastructure Development and Commercialization” as well as exhibitions showcasing different products and services are expected to produce stimulating interactions among conference delegates. Field excursions to geological sites with a taste of tourism are being organized in all the Partner States to make the experience memorable.
 
The EAC Partner States will showcase the potential for oil and gas that exists in the region and report on ongoing activities in exploration, development and production.  Further, they will share their policy, legal and regulatory frameworks and other initiatives aimed at continually improving the enabling environment.  Delegates will be informed of the investment opportunities available in the region and arrange business-to-business meetings with governments and other industry stakeholders.
 
I therefore take this opportunity to invite you to participate in the Conference and Exhibition. You may participate as a delegate, exhibitor or a sponsor.

I look forward to welcoming you at the EAPCE’17.
