On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Third edition of the CIEHC, Congo’s International Hydrocarbons Conference and Exhibition, I would like to extend our thanks to all participants that joined us at the event. Over 750 participants were present throughout the three days of CIEHC, making it the largest oil and gas event in Central Africa.

A special thanks to H.E. Clément MOUAMBA, Prime Minister of the Republic of Congo, and H.E. Jean Marc THYSTERE TCHICAYA, for their interventions in the opening ceremony.

In 2016 The Republic of Congo’s oil production hit 317’000 bbl/day, going from fourth, in 2015, to third position of Sub-Saharan Africa’s largest producers . This production is set to increase, as production ramps up in existing fields and the interest in the 2016 licensing round, whose results will be announced later this year, and the proposed licensing round for 2017/2018.

The program of activities for CIEHC was created to present the government of Congo’s vision for the future of the Hydrocarbons industry in the country, highlighting a commitment to transparency, sustainable development, local content and protection of the environment. There were a total of 56 speakers that intervened in the program, representing both the public and private sector, showcasing the developments and future of the sector, addressing some of the issues that are affecting the industry today, and presenting infrastructure development opportunities.

Once again, our thanks to all the participants, exhibitors, sponsors and officials that contributed to the success of the event, and we look forward to seeing you in the CIEHC-4.
