As the macroeconomic effects of COVID-19 on world economies unfold, demand shock and volatility have impacted energy prices in Africa and across the world. Join us to hear the latest updates on the Africa energy markets. This is a great opportunity to keep up-to-date with the changing dynamics of the industry, and connect with peers within the sector.

We will explore the latest market trends for global and African crudes as well as provide forward-looking outlooks for supply and demand balances globally and in the continent. We will also be examining Africa’s pursuit of greener fuels and the fundamental and price impact of the latest waves of deregulations in the world of refined products.
