Pumps Africa attended the just concluded 7th Oil & Gas Africa – International Trade Exhibition which ran from 29 – 31 May. The event acted as a hub for key players in the oil and gas community.
Leading oil, gas and petroleum companies from around the world were in attendance and Pumps Africa observed that, though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighboring countries.
This year’s event was merged with the 5th Solar Expo and companies dealing with solar power were well represented, almost to the point of stealing the show.
Oil & Gas Africa offered participants the opportunity to showcase the industry’s latest achievements and technologies. They were also able to network with major stakeholders from the region’s oil and gas sector.
Project managers in attendance got insights on which equipment to use for their projects and lots of opportunities to consult on the latest innovations and the benefits .
Some of the exhibitor categories included: Drilling & Well Completion Equipment, Lifting Equipment, Offshore Platforms, Refining & Petrochemical Equipment and Services just but to name a few.
YATO Kenya stood out among the exhibitors not just for their big stand, but the fact that they carried with them a variety of their products.
Companies such as Ruhrpumpen Group and RATO came with an intent of not only exhibiting their products, but also getting local distributors. Others like Shakti Pumps were there to cement their respective brand awareness as they already have a strong client base in the country.
Local wholesalers as well as retailers present during the exhibition were also able to get equipment at factory prices.
The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) is all set to host the seventh Oil and Gas Africa Expo in Nairobi from 29-31 May 2018, focusing on the international trade opportunities of Africa’s oil and gas value chain
Organised by Expogroup, the exhibition will attract major oil and gas players from across the globe to explore more potential in the region.
The conference is in line with the Kenyan government’s ambitious aim to explore more potential in the region, as oil discoveries in Uganda and Kenya and gas deposits found off Tanzania and Mozambique have turned east Africa into a hot spot for hydrocarbon exploration.
Trade visitors from all over East and Central Africa are being invited directly as well as in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique and Congo. Though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighbouring countries.
Some of the companies exhibiting during the conference include Delta Pipe and Tube Trading LLC, AIV Europe Ltd. Cable Depot FZCO, Hydro Drilling SRL, Ruhrpumpen and LALIZAS.
Duncan Njage, regional marketing director at Exposure Events and Publication, said, “As the mediators of the economic development in East Africa, we are extremely excited that our business community and relevant stakeholders are now taking full advantage of such platforms created for their growth opportunities through their active participation.”
Making a massive impact will be the 7th edition of Oil and Gas 2018, hosted again by the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC).
Media Manager, Expogroup, Joel D’Silva said “Since its start in 2012, Oil and Gas Africa continues to augment the regional market while presenting its new innovations and solutions for a better production and processing efficiency with reference to the new market trends and demands of the oil and gas industry . This year, the exhibition will focus on Drilling & Well Completion Equipment, Pipeline Inspection & Maintenance, Piping Components, Valves, Actuators, mainly concentrating on resourceful, cost efficient solutions and applications. It is an opportune time for companies to be part of East Africa’s economic growth story”.
Oil and Gas Africa provides exhibitors the ideal platform to establish successful business relations with customers, agents and partners in Kenya, whilst allowing them to raise brand awareness by presenting their products and innovations to a highly qualified audience.
Global Visitors echoed what many economic forecasters have said in recent years that Kenya, as a growing economy, has huge potential for businesses around the world. Statistics showed a high percentage of visitors to the exhibition were company owners or procurement /purchasing professionals. Moreover the overall impression and feedback from last year’s visitors and exhibitors has been extremely positive.
This year’s event will arrive with the biggest aftermarket brands on-board, listing over 15 product categories that would include drilling, cranes & winches, lifting & well completion equipment, floating & refining equipment and services.
Participants will include TREM Engineering (Russia); Firewheel Industrial Corp (China); Ruhrpumpen Group (Kenya); Atilim Makina (Turkey); Qingdao Accugauge Instrument Co (China); Swagelok Northern Africa (Egypt); Lalizas Italia Srl (Italy) and many more.

Improving global crude oil prices has caused oil and gas exploration activities in Kenya and the East African region as a whole to rise as global confidence in the sector slowly continues to grow back.
Kenya has recently seen significant exploration success with a UK based oil and gas firm indicating oil reserves of over 700 million barrels in the country’s north western county of Turkana, in addition to existing off shore drilling sites.
The firm reports that the breakeven point for Kenya crude oil is around the $25 per barrel mark, including pipeline transportation costs to the sea port of Mombasa. This puts oil production in Kenya among the cheapest in the world, beating those of major regional exporters like Angola ($35.4) and Nigeria ($31.5).
Lower production costs mean higher profit margins for the producers. With global rates crossing the $50 per barrel mark, this translates to huge profit margins for oil firms in the country. This also highlights the good returns on investment on offer in Kenya’s oil industry with it being able to survive sustained slumps in oil prices and still make a profit.
With the prime focus to shape this resurgence in the Kenyan oil and gas industry, the 6th edition of OIL & GAS Kenya will take place from 11th to 13th April, 2017 at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) in Nairobi.
The three day trade exhibition will witness the gathering of leading industry experts, stake holders and decision makers from over 24 countries discussing the latest market trends, investment opportunities and advancements in technology in the oil and gas sector.
Exhibiting firms include AIV EUROPE LTD (UK) dealing with exotic alloy and speciality pipeline valves; DELTA PIPE AND TUBE (UAE) dealing in corrosion control protective coatings, structural steel and heavy engineering products; AIUT SP. Z O.O. (Poland) providing complete metering, automation and process control solutions; WAROM TECHNOLOGY INC. (China) dealing with explosion proof light fittings and electrical apparatus and BRISTOL GASES (UAE), specialists in calibration mixtures and high purity gases.
