The National Oil Corporation of Kenya (NOC Kenya) is set to host the 7th edition of the East Africa Energy, Oil & Gas Summit & Exhibition (EAOGS).

The leading regional event scheduled for 15-17 November at the Radisson Blu hotel in Nairobi is part of a long-term MOU agreement with international events organizer, GEP.

Launched 10 years ago, EAOGS brings together domestic, regional and global businesses from public and private sectors as the new emerging oil and gas countries in East Africa set their eyes on developing their hydrocarbon potential.

The move has seen huge gas projects come up in Mozambique and Tanzania, billions of dollars unlocked in Uganda and the reassuring progress in Kenya’s field development plan.


The 2022 conference programme will reflect on the progress of the above projects and opportunities availed across the region, with a special focus on the energy transition.

The programme will also shed light on local content and engaging the community, legal frameworks, investment, digital transformation and geopolitical impact on the industry.

Additionally, the summit will culminate in a special showcase exhibition and awards ceremony.

EAOGS normally attracts more than 400 delegates backed by regional governments and National Oil Companies, all major East African companies and private sector organisations.


“Given the recent significant industry developments, we see huge opportunities for our international and national partners and for the development of our natural resource wealth for the benefit for all and ensuring that East Africa’s energy needs are met. We believe in the importance of attracting foreign investment while promoting local entrepreneurship and capacity building and the important role of EAOGS in providing a much-needed platform to facilitate this,” said Leparan Gideon Ole Morintat, NOC Kenya Chief Executive Officer.

The summit is set to discuss the continent’s readiness for the energy transition and effects of the global pressure to decarbonise on the development of current hydrocarbon projects that are widely considered critical to improve the lives and livelihoods of citizens of African countries.

“The timing of this 7th edition of the East Africa Energy Oil & Gas Summit could not be more appropriate and we invite you to support our event, to support us and to support the region of East Africa and share in our development and prosperity,” he added.
