The Gambia’s Minister of Petroleum and Energy Abdoulie Jobe will deliver the keynote address at West Africa’s foremost energy forum, MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power conference in Mauritania. 

The conference and exhibition will take place from November 21-22 in Nouakchott, Mauritania, under the patronage of H.E. Mohamed Ould Ghazouani, President of Mauritania.

Mr. Jobe will address high-level delegates on 21 November during the event’s opening morning as part of the Ministerial Panel, joining the respective ministers of Senegal, Mauritania, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea-Conakry. 

He will discuss The Gambia’s plans for exploration and production, renewable energy development and infrastructural upgrades.

MSGBC International Conference Director for ECP Sandra Jeque stated that, “It is with great anticipation and joy that we prepare to welcome Hon. Abdoulie Jobe, Minister of Petroleum and Energy of The Gambia. 

“Hon. Minister Jobe’s contribution to the conference will be key for advancing investment in the country, strengthening regional collaboration and ushering in a new era of energy security across the MSGBC region.”

The MSGBC Oil, Gas & Power conference represents the only energy event covering the entire region from Mauritania to Conakry. 

Representing part of the high-potential MSGBC basin, The Gambia is making efforts to unlock the true potential of its energy sector.

The Gambia’s oil field is located close to Senegal’s Sangomar oil field – which is set to produce first oil this year – and possesses strategic port infrastructure that will be important for the trade and distribution of oil. 

This location also speaks to the potential of The Gambia’s offshore acreage, and investors are urged to capitalise on the opportunities the untapped market presents.
