ABSTRACT
The article focuses on West Africa's oil and gas industry. According to Douglas-Westwood analysts, West Africa will be leading the world in terms of operations spending that will reach $13 billion by 2010. Moreover, the demand for oil and gas in new areas of the world is increasing that affects the E&P activity which is reflected in the amount of money going to offshore West Africa. Summaries of technical papers that will be presented at PennWell's Offshore West Africa (OWA) Conference and Exhibition that will be held in Abuja, Nigeria on March 20-22, 2007 are also included.
