South Sudan Energy Summit to Host African Petroleum Producers Association (APPO) Secretary General as Keynote Speaker
Dr. Omar Farouk Ibrahim will be coming to Juba in June for the sixth edition of South Sudan Oil & Power 2023.
Dr. Omar Farouk Ibrahim, Secretary General of the African Petroleum Producers Association (APPO) , will attend the sixth edition of South Sudan Oil & Power 2023 – taking place from June 14-16, in Juba, to facilitate deals among African petroleum producers and global investors. As the only major oil producer in East Africa, South Sudan is looking to global partners to advance exploration and production efforts and to its regional counterparts in the Nile Basin and East African Community to foster new relationships, consolidating its position as the engine of business and investment in East Africa. APPO’s participation at SSOP 2023 will help advance this agenda, with Dr. Ibrahim will engage with stakeholders and the South Sudanese government on topics such as improving regional cooperation; creating cross-border fuel security and stability; bolstering investment in the mid- and downstream sectors; and connecting East Africa through infrastructure deployment. Already, South Sudan has been discussing joining the high-level organization, and APPO’s participation at the country’s official energy conference will help advance these discussions. “APPO’s representation by the Secretary General is a strong testament to the role the conference continues to play in facilitating investment and development across East Africa’s burgeoning energy sector. As the event enhances the country’s position as the nexus of East African petroleum exploration and production, as well as innovation and energy cooperation, Dr. Ibrahim’s participation will advance dialogue and engagement as he continues to foster relationships between African energy producers,” states James Chester, Senior Director at SSOP 2023 event organizer, Energy Capital & Power.
