Report from Morocco Oil & Gas 2014 Summit

Report from Morocco Oil & Gas 2014 Summit

The Morocco Oil & Gas 2014 Summit was held at the Hotel Pullman Palmeraie in Marrakech on 7th – 8th May 2014.

The Summit has been organised by International Research Networks, a leading business intelligence group, transmitting information through the medium of highly topical Conferences, Summits, Round Tables, Reviews and Publications.

The Summit, fully endorsed by the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines (ONHYM), attracted more than 250 delegates from international oil companies. H.E Abdelkader Amara, Minister of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment of Morocco, opened the event. He referred to potential measures for further increasing Morocco’s attractiveness in his speech.

The Keynote Address was delivered by Ms. Amina Benkhadra, General Director of ONHYM. She stated that 2013 and 2014 have been an unprecedented period of growth for Morocco’s upstream activity, and the ONHYM is continuing its promotional work. Two or three additional agreements could possibly be signed by the end of 2014 in addition to 31 exploration contracts currently in force, as well as five reconnaissance agreements.

Day 1 of the Summit, included insightful presentations by the senior directors of ONHYM, highlighting Morocco’s offshore and onshore exploration opportunities, hydrocarbon legislation and promising petroleum systems. The insights were given by experts in the field including Mr Mohamed Nahim, Exploration Director at ONHYM; Mr Redouane Hajjaj, Head of the Petroleum Agreements Management Department; and Mr Abdellah Ait Salem, Basin Evaluation Division Manager.

Amongst the major operators in Morocco, Ben Conley, Morocco Asset Manager at Cairn Energy, and Duncan Wallace, Exploration Manager at Chariot Oil & Gas, presented on their exploration plans and activities, including offshore and onshore activities. Later that day, Rick Eisenberg, Africa Frontier Exploration and Appraisal Manager, and Carl Atallah, Vice President and Country Manager of Platinum Sponsor Chevron discussed opportunities in Morocco and what it takes to be successful in frontier exploration in the country. The American major is due to start seismic shooting promptly and plans to multiply drilling offshore Agadir. Mr Atallah stated that part of their appeal is that this area has not been explored before. He then added “exploration is a risky business, and even in a success case, it will be a very long time before Morocco sees the kind of benefits associated with oil and gas production.”

After a full day of exclusive insights and networking, the delegation were taken to a Networking Reception, sponsored by Genel Energy, allowing participants to pursue business conversations with senior representatives from the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment, the ONHYM and the main oil and gas operators and service providers of the industry. The evening pleasantly continued at the Tigmiza Palace for a prestigious Gala Dinner, hosted by Gulfsands Petroleum.

Day 2 featured presentations on Morocco onshore and offshore developments by Mahdi Sajjad, President and CEO at Gulfsands Petroleum; Paul Griffiths, Managing Director at Fastnet Oil & Gas; and Gerald Lane, Finance Director at Kosmos Energy. Gerald explained more about the unexplored basins offering potentially high volume and high value barrels. He stated that the excellent investment climates – one of the best in Africa – and the good alignment with Government authorities on hydrocarbon exploration, are among the reasons for exploration.

Shale oil and gas were discussed by the experts in the field; Walid Sinno, Middle East and North Africa Director at San Leon Energy; Hussein Abdallah, Exploration Manager Morocco and Mauritania at Repsol, and Mike Hoffmann, Exploration Manager North Africa at Gold Sponsor Anadarko. They explained that their objectives in terms of unconventional resources are to explore alternatives to accelerate development and help to establish a profitable oil and gas shale industry.

Gold Sponsor CGG, represented by Rob Crossley, Chief Geologist, also presented on geological and geophysical integration for successful exploration of the Moroccan offshore.

Finally, Franck Le Baron, Vice President International Projects at Elengy; Fabrice Fortin, Head of Gas and LNG Market Developments North Africa at Royal Dutch Shell – Integrated Gas; and Laurent Thery, Senior Vice President International Business Development at GDF Suez, hosted a session on the Moroccan downstream sector focusing on natural gas and LNG terminals. Morocco is aiming at diversifying its energy mix for better energy efficiency and, according to Mr Fortin, gas and LNG are keys to achieving the national energy strategy goals.

The Marrakech Farewell Night, sponsored by Kosmos Energy, took place at the magnificent Soleiman Palace, facilitating exclusive networking opportunities with international oil and gas thought leaders.

Amongst companies that attended the Summit were AVA Newpark, Baker Hughes, Caithness Petroleum, Clifford Chance, ConocoPhillips, Dan-Bunkening Middle East, Dolphin Geophysical, Enel, Ernst & Young, Freeport McMoRan Oil & Gas, Galp Energia, Genesis Oil & Gas, Glencore UK, GPS Intl, Halliburton, Impact Oil & Gas, Integrated Geochemical Interpretation (IGI), ION Geophysical, Jotun MENA, Kerui Group, Lafarge Maroc, Longreach Oil & Gas, Mubadala Petroleum, New Age Morocco, OGRPP – Guinea, OneSubsea, Polarcus, PwC, Saham Assurance, Sanad, Saipem, Sotaserv, Spectrum, Sumitomo Corporation, Svenska Petroleum, Technip, Teredo Oils, TGS, Total Safety and Xodus Group.

The first North American Student Energy Summit (NASES) will take place on June 19th and 20th 2014 in parallel with four other Regional Student Energy Summits in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. The Regional Summits are extensions of the prestigious International Student Energy Summit that take place every other year. Student Energy has already reached over 28,000 students around the world through these events and initiatives.

The inaugural NASES will be held in New York City as a partnership with universities in the New York City area including institutes such as Columbia University and New York University. These universities have very international and diverse student bodies that create the unique foundation upon which the summit will be based.

NASES is aiming to tackle regional issues with keynote addresses and panel discussions from current energy leaders, and to engage students in interactive sessions to come up with creative solutions to our current energy dilemmas. Raising awareness and inspiring these students will ignite their interest in becoming a driving force in the transition to the sustainable energy future.

New York City is a leader in energy innovation and new development. It is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, and as such, has taken aggressive steps to implement an integrated approach to improve energy sector efficiency and sustainability. New York is not alone in making a fundamental transition in the energy sector. While national policies in the United States and Canada may highlight controversial hydro-fracking and oil pipelines systems, individual states and cities have taken things into their own hands to ensure resiliency and energy security.
