The Democratic Republic of Congo’s Minister of Hydrocarbons, HE Crispin Atama Tabe, is heading up a high-level line-up of government and industry expert speakers at the event which is taking place from 10-11 September.

The DRC is considered to hold considerable crude oil reserves. These are mainly located in Bas-Congo, along its Atlantic Ocean coastline, the Central Basin, the Albertine Graben and the Tanganyika Graben.

Potential of DRC’s oil reserves
Says Nicole Smith, the IPAD DRC Oil & Gas Forum event director: “DRC’s current production is about 25 000 barrels per day but given the potential of the reserves we can expect this production to reach 100 000. It has the potential to contribute to half of DRC’s GDP by the end of 2016. Since the oil sector in DRC is still an emerging market, the development of pipelines and refineries must be integrated into the strategies of both government and investors if the country wants to follow the path of industrialisation. In order to do so, companies need to integrate a viable system of distribution and transportation for hydrocarbons products.”

She continues: “furthermore, the recent exploration activities raised concerns from an environmental point of view, which brought a bit of reluctance to go forward on many projects. Our exclusive session on social and environmental management will focus on this aspect and our speakers will give the audience the tools and skills to understand the issues and the solutions provided to benefit from these precious resources under the best conditions.”
