Argus Media (https://www.argusmedia.com) will host the second annual Argus Africa LPG conference in Cape Town, South Africa, on 20- 21 October.
Delegates will attend from across Africa, representing marketing and distribution companies, traders, importers, cylinder and equipment manufacturers and government and regulatory bodies.
South Africa’s Minister of Energy Tina Joemat-Pettersson said at last year’s Argus Africa LPG that “providing sufficient and appropriate sources of energy is a challenge facing our continent. LPG as a reliable source ought to be deployed to deal with this challenge.” Africa offers huge potential for growth in LPG use, but there are a number of challenges that are holding back development, including infrastructure, policy and cultural barriers.

That is why we are so committed to engaging with African LPG stakeholders, to share a vision of a potentially golden age of African LPG demand.”
