CIS 2016 will see the launch of a new conference this year. “The summit brings together industry leaders, government entities and trade organisations to share latest industry trends, insight, opportunities and challenges in a lively format of debate and discussion,” said Hook.
 
Day one of The OGP Summit 2016 offers a range of insight from an analysis of African investment opportunities, current regulation as well as a presentation examining South Africa’s shale gas reserves.
