On the morning of Thursday 4th October, the Prime Minister of the Government, Charged with Administrative Coordination, opened the conference in which around 300 delegates from the hydrocarbons sector, both national and international, will take part.
The Ministry for Mines and Hydrocarbons and SONAGAS are organising this event in Equatorial Guinea. The ceremony began with words of welcome from the Mayoress of Malabo, Maria Coloma Edjang Mbengono, who invited those present to share the joy seizing the people of Equatorial Guinea due to the 50th Anniversary of our sovereignty. Among the speeches given during the meeting, one of the highlights was the speech given by the Prime Minister of the Government, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, representing the Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
Obama Asue, in addition to praising the Ministry for Mines and Hydrocarbons and SONAGAS, took advantage of the occasion to restate the commitment of the Government to preparations to house the headquarters of the Gas Exporting Countries Summit in 2019.
Within the same context, he reminded the petroleum and gas professionals that they should take into account at all times the problem of climate change as a concern for all States and Governments on the planet, stressing that it is their responsibility to exploit energy resources in a responsible manner.
One of the most ambitious SONAGAS projects is the GAS MEGA HUB, the aim of which is to monetise the gas of Alen. Through that, SONAGAS will be able to extend its alliances and collaboration with other companies in the sector, playing a central role in the development of synergies, both at a subregional and continental level, in addition to providing employment for the national population.
