Africa’s Local Content policies on spotlight at ALC 2018

The Second edition of the Africa Oil & Gas Local Content conference & exhibition will take place 26 – 27 November 2018 at the Epic Sana Hotel in Luanda. ALC is a biannual event organized by the African Petroleum Producers Organization, APPO, AME Trade Ltd. and the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum of the Republic of Angola.

Local content requirements around ownership, contracting and labour usage, continues to be one of the key issues affecting the Oil and Gas industry in Africa. APPO has set as a goal for member countries to achieve an average 30% Local Content in Oil and Gas activities. ALC 2018 is focusing on the theme:

Advancing local content across the oil and gas supply chain in African petroleum producing countries

Organized with the goal of promoting Local Content practices in the African continent, the event gathers government representatives, NOC’s, oil & gas companies, services providers and decision makers from APPO member countries. It remains the most influential event in shaping Local Content policies in Africa.
