The African Energy Chamber (AEC) is honored to announce that global energy major Chevron Corporation will be coming to African Energy Week (AEW) 2021 in Cape Town to participate in the conversation about Africa’s energy future. Representing the second largest oil company in America, and with an active presence in 180 countries worldwide, Chevron has and continues to be a key driver of Africa’s energy growth. With representatives from the company confirming their participation, Chevron is set to make a strong play for partnerships at AEW 2021, with the company focused on signing deals and expanding their presence in African markets.
Chevron has been one of the international oil companies (IOC) that has driven Africa’s energy sector growth over the past several decades. The company has a significant footprint in African energy markets, accelerating oil and gas development and injecting critical capital into local economies. The company has a sole mandate to increase energy access worldwide, emphasizing the role that energy plays in improving lives and driving human progress. In line with this objective, Chevron has made significant progress in Africa and across multiple sectors, including oil and gas exploration, production and distribution, as well as within the renewable energy sphere.
Chevron is committed to delivering energy worldwide, executing major projects across the world that are designed to yield decades of energy. In Africa, the company’s strongest presence is in west Africa. In Angola, the company currently holds interests in four concessions, including two offshore in the Cabinda province. Additionally, the company operates the Angola Liquified Natural Gas project; the Mafumeira Sul project; and the Lianizi project. In Nigeria, Chevron works closely with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to develop key assets in the Niger Delta. With a 40% interest in 13 concessions in the region, as well as operating the Agbami project and the Escravos Gas to Liquids project, the company is driving west Africa’s hydrocarbon sectors.
“Chevron represents one of the top IOCs in Africa. The company has worked closely with governments, stakeholders, and local companies to accelerate energy sector developments. Committed to making energy poverty history and ensuring that everyone worldwide has access to affordable and reliable energy, Chevron has placed people at the forefront of the organizations activities,” stated NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman of the AEC.
