WINDHOEK, Namibia, April 2, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- With an interior domain across 27 countries, covering one half of the African land mass, and a offshore potential from Morocco to the Cape, the Western Africa oil and gas exploration zone is one of the world's richest and most promising for ventures and new opportunities in the upstream market. The 19th Western Africa Oil, Gas & Energy Conference 2013 will focus on the oil and gas opportunities and potential, both offshore and onshore, in this vast zone.
The Conference is hosted by Global Pacific & Partners and held from April 22nd until 24th at the Hilton Hotel in Windhoek Namibia.
