The organizers of Africa Oil Week – the meeting place for Africa’s upstream oil and gas markets, has launched an e-book on local content development in Sub-Saharan Africa titled “Perspectives on local content development in Sub-Saharan Africa from across the oil and gas value chain”.

In a statement made available to Orient Energy Review, Africa Oil Week said the eBook aims to address a breadth of issues currently faced by those operating in the African local content space, including realistic target setting, balancing incentives with coercive measures and the importance of early and sustained dialogue.

It noted that the e-book is dedicated to frank discussions around the challenges and opportunities that arise in the design and implementation of local content in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

“Africa Oil Week is proud to announce the launch of its latest eBook, dedicated to frank discussions around the challenges and opportunities that arise in the design and implementation of local content in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

“Local content has been steadily moving up the agenda of most African oil and gas producers over the last decade. A local content policy or law is now globally recognised as a must-have, with most emerging and mature countries passing, or set to pass legislation.

“In response to this growing trend, the eBook captures perspectives on local content development from across the African oil and gas value chain, with contributors from Shell, Fluor Corporation, the South African Oil and Gas Alliance, the Commonwealth Secretariat and more.

“The eBook aims to address a breadth of issues currently faced by those operating in the African local content space, including: realistic target setting, balancing incentives with coercive measures and the importance of early and sustained dialogue.

“The high-level contributors, including the African Development Bank’s Chief Oil Sector Officer and Namibia’s Petroleum Commissioner, reflect on their own experiences and lessons learned, as well looking at the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on future local content projects across the continent.”
