  • There have been several new partnerships formed in the region, such as Aberdeen University and UDSM, the College of the Rockies with the Lodwar Vocational and Technical College, funded by investors such as the UK Government and Africa Oil – learn how your organisation could seek similar partnerships and funding


  1. Explore opportunities to work with the development community and foreign aid investors to deliver their skills and supply chain initiatives
  • Organisations such as the World Bank, African Development Bank and smaller NGOs participating in Getenergy Africa 2016 are becoming major sources of funding for skill and supply chain programmes. The event is an opportunity to speak directly with programme managers to explore business opportunities for your company


  1. Gain strategic insight into localisation trends, pain points and where further investment and specialist support is needed to position your own solutions and offerings to the market and increase your ROI
  • A major problem exists with the lack of coordination between parties involved in localisation initiatives – Getenergy Africa 2016 is an opportunity to support further collaboration and form a untied strategy, whilst bringing in new partners to help meet local content goals


  1. Timing – Getenergy Africa 2016 is being held at a crucial time for many projects across Sub-Saharan Africa as host governments implement new and recently formed local content legislation, PSAs and HGAs are negotiated, all against a backdrop of political pressure to deliver meaningful national development from hydrocarbon resources
  • In Tanzania the LNG Plant Project is currently negotiating their HGA’s, with demonstrable commitments to local content forming a major part of these discussions. With ambitious targets and low levels of local capacity, this presents a major challenge for the IOCs but also creates significant opportunities for education and training partners who can help them meet these targets
