Johannesburg, 14 June 2021 - The African Energy Chamber (AEC) is excited to announce the official launch of African 
Energy Week (AEW) 2021, taking place in Cape Town on 9th - 12th November 2021. AEW 2021 will showcase the first-ever 
African Energy Village, an 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. 
Commencing with a three-day conference and ending with a golf tournament on 12th November, the event's primary focus is 
to define and promote the African energy agenda through development, deal-making, and private sector participation. Key 
topics include making energy poverty history before 2030 and the future of the African oil and gas industry; African 
upstream, midstream and downstream opportunities; African oil, gas and finance in the face of the energy transition - 
highlighting African financing institutions such as the African Development Bank, the African Export-Import Bank, the 
African Financing Corporation, Africa50, the Industrial Development Corporation and the Development Bank of Central 
African States; local content; women in energy and making African energy competitive for investment into a decarbonized 
Additionally, the conference will address the role of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the 
Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), the International Energy Agency (IEC), the African Petroleum Producers 
Organization (APPO), the International Association of Geophysical Contractors (IAGC), and the American Petroleum 
Institute (API) and Africa. By opening the dialogue on Africa's gas miracle and its potential in markets including 
Senegal, Mozambique, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Algeria, Tanzania, Equatorial Guinea, Congo-Brazzaville, and Angola 
- as well as small-scale Liquified Natural Gas, intra-African trade and the African Continental Free Trade Agreement - 
the conference represents the ideal networking and deal-making platform for all African energy stakeholders. 
The AEC's commitment to hosting this Africa-focused event in Africa comes at a crucial time for the oil and gas 
industry. In light of recent developments that seek to suggest that Africa is not capable of hosting events of global 
standards, the Chamber feels responsible to voice against this and lead by example by showcasing the continent and all 
its profound beauty. 
With this in mind, the only African-focused, in-person energy event aims to capture the essence and cultural hub that 
exists in Cape Town. The AEC will not abandon the continent for international venues. AEW 2021 is an energy event like 
no other and the AEC is fully focused on promoting African development and growth through African-held events. 
"We are happy with the tremendous support from so many in-and-outside Africa. Our Oil and Gas producers have been a 
force for good and we must be proud of this industry. We must also welcome energy transition and engage Africa with the 
most forceful conversation and solutions for the future. AEW 2021 offers a unique and interactive networking experience 
in which global energy stakeholders can unite and participate in the continent's transformation. The time is now," says 
NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman, African Energy Chamber. 
"Africa Energy Week will have a bold message that encourages energy solutions that cut out entitlements, handouts and 
foreign aid. No one owes us anything and in order for so many Africans who want to make energy poverty history to 
triumph, we must embrace all forms of energy in our energy mix. We must attract investors and push our leadership so 
that each country wins when we create and encourage an enabling environment," adds Ayuk. 
AEW 2021 is taking place with the full support of prominent African and global industry leaders and oil and gas 
organizations and is focused on expanding opportunities in Africa. Additionally, AEW 2021 will present innovative 
exhibition spaces at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront that aim to promote African heritage and culture, while showcasing the 
exciting technological advancements the industry has to offer. 
"African energy producers can only grow and meet energy demand when we all do our best to mobilize our resources and 
advocate for important principles of personal responsibility, smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal 
liberty, and the rule of law. This will kick start investment and make a transition that works for Africa. Let's do 
this in Africa, for Africa and for the energy sector," concludes Ayuk. 
Of equal importance, the event will take place under strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure the safety of all attendees. 
In line with current government regulations, AEW 2021 will host a series of networking events across a variety of 
locations at the V&A Waterfront, thereby ensuring social gathering limits are in place at all times. Additionally, 
through mandatory testing and the availability of personal protective equipment and facilities, AEW 2021 aims to 
protect attendees while ensuring a successful and productive event.
