AIX: Gas 2015

28-29 May 2015

Sponsored by Actis and co-produced by African Energy CbI’s respected source of independent analysis on the continent’s energy industries, AIX:Gas responded to new opportunties to commercialise Africa’s gas resources shaped by new discoveries, innovative financing structures and significant power demand.

As one of the panelists stated: “It was the right topic at the right time for sub-Saharan Africa!”

Proceedings were held under the Chatham House Rule and structured round a series of interactive panel-led sessions to facilitate dialogue.
