2nd Morocco Oil & Gas Summit
The Moroccan National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines (ONHYM) was meeting with potential and existing investors, including SDX Energy, Chariot Oil & Gas, Geoex, Enagas and ENI at the 2nd Morocco Oil & Gas Summit in 6th-7th February 2019. ONHYM announced future plans regarding exploration and production following the recent hydrocarbon discoveries, and formed new partnerships for midstream projects.
For the first time, companies discussed Morocco’s Atlantic offshore geology and the results recent exploration activities are showcasing, onshore exploration and unconventional hydrocarbons opportunities. They covered all exploration challenges and opportunities in Morocco, including how E&P companies and contractors can make the most out of the current experienced low-cost service environment in Morocco.
Opportunities for independent Oil companies was shared, including the great investment potential of shallow offshore fields for smaller exploration companies.
SDX Energy discussed its recent discoveries, including its important discoveries in the LNB-1 and the ONZ-7 wells, which tapped Morocco’s significant reserves. With more exploration and production projects on the way, the need for new partners is higher than ever.
The 2nd Morocco Oil & Gas Summit speakers included:
and many more.
The event was an ideal opportunity for oil and gas companies (exploration and production), consultants, seismic, drilling and other service companies to have in-depth discussions and one-to-one private meetings with ONHYM and National Hydrocarbon Agencies from West African countries. The focus was on current exploration opportunities, geology, legislation, midstream and licensing updates in West Africa.
