South Sudan Oil & Electric Power (SSOP) (https://bit.ly/3yarACf) returns for its fifth edition on September 13-14, 2022, at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Juba, bringing together regional energy leaders, international financiers and South Sudanese companies for two days of networking, panel discussions and deal-making. Representing the official state meeting place for the oil, gas and electricity sectors in South Sudan, as well as the only international conference taking place in the country this year, the 2022 SSOP will be instrumental in introducing foreign investors to east African opportunities. PPK (www.EnergyCapitalPower.com) is excited to make this event the first international branded hotel in South Sudan, which opens on 24th May 2022.
What makes the SSOP the event of choice for regional and international energy stakeholders are three factors. First, the SSOP represents the official energy event of the Government of South Sudan, hosted by Africa’s leading investment platform for the energy sector, Energy Capital & Power (ECP). This year’s edition will take place in official partnership with South Sudan’s Ministry of Petroleum, Ministry of Energy and Dams and Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning. This is the only energy event in the region with this level of government support, highlighting the important role the event plays in opening up investment and development opportunities throughout South Sudan.
Second, in its fifth edition, SSOP 2022 is the longest running event held by the ECP. With the first edition being held in 2017, the event has grown rapidly, with the signing of new deals, participation of senior delegates, and critical energy topics expanded over the years. Backed by ECP’s experience in large-scale energy events in Africa, the SSOP has emerged as one of the company’s top events and one of the most competitive in Africa. What’s more, SSOP 2021 represents the first face-to-face event to be held in post-COVID-19 Africa, ushering in a wave of industry-focused events across the continent.
Lastly, the event recognized South Sudan’s position as east Africa’s energy gateway, and as such, focused all dialogue around the role that the country plays in the regional sector. Strategically located and rich in natural resources, with the right investments and stability, South Sudan has the potential to lead east Africa into a new era of energy and economic growth while serving as a liaison agent for its neighbors in the east African region. Focusing on collaborations, partnerships and liaison infrastructure, east Africa continues to expand the regional energy sector on the back of the discussions and networking opportunities offered during SSOP events.
In 2022, the event will focus more on markets and investment, with topics covering oil company interactions with local communities; contribution of oil and gas to the economy and society; future projects and industrial expansion; and encourage local participation and job creation. Focusing on foreign investment and the rise of independents in South Sudan, while acknowledging the country’s status as a gateway to east African energy, SSOP 2022 integrates the entire oil, gas and electricity value chain with the aim of kickstarting South Sudan’s industrial growth.
