NIGERIA: Former Nigerian Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Professor Ibe Kachikwu, has been announced as a keynote speaker at the African Energy Week (AEW) 2023. The event, which is set to take place from October 16-20 in Cape Town, is Africa’s premier event for the energy sector.

During the event, Kachikwu will lead discussions on best practices to accelerate the African energy renaissance for energy security, economic growth, and sustainable development. With over 31 years of experience in the energy sector, Kachikwu is well-positioned to drive serious dialogue on investment and partnership opportunities available within the Nigerian and African energy landscapes.

Kachikwu has served as General Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), President of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), and the African Petroleum Producers Organization (APPO). As Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Kachikwu orchestrated the transformation of Nigeria’s oil and gas sector through a series of policy reforms, partnerships with global players, and the implementation of several significant projects.

Kachikwu’s impact on elevating energy production and monetization across African nations for bolstering local, regional, and global energy market resilience, as well as fostering robust gross domestic product growth, has been profound.

The African Energy Week is the African Energy Chamber’s interactive exhibition and networking event that seeks to unite African energy stakeholders, drive industry growth and development, and promote Africa as the destination for African-focused events.
