SAGA is a proud member of the South African Oil and Gas Alliance.
About SAOGA – Serving the Interests of Industry and Members in the Upstream and Midstream Oil and Gas Sectors in Africa.
The South African Oil & Gas Alliance (SAOGA) is dedicated to promoting the upstream and midstream sectors of the oil and gas value chain, primarily in South Africa and regionally in Southern Africa.
The organisation operates as a partnership between the public and private sectors, receiving public funding to carry out a range of industry development activities and working to promote the interests of members. It is overseen by an independent volunteer Board of Directors from industry and a number of other key stakeholders.
The market has changed substantially over the last years. The opportunities in a $100+ a barrel environment are very different to those in a lower price world. So we have remapped a future timeline and while some anticipate a price rise and global inventory reduction we see that the next building blocks for South Africa are: exploration activity Onshore (Karoo) and Offshore as well as the already announced LNG to Power importation opportunity. This gives us a clear and present opportunity to build a gas economy around certain events. SAOGA’s challenge now is to make this vision concrete, while repositioning for the upswing in rig and related work.
Our aim is to be the primary facilitator servicing the upstream and mid-stream sectors of the oil and gas value chain across Sub-Saharan Africa, attracting investment and developing capacity within the region to service and supply the oil and gas industry, for the benefit of all stakeholders and valued members.In parallel we aim to provide the Sub-Saharan oil and gas industry and our members with a comprehensive platform, driving growth of the oil and gas industry through skills development, local knowledge, geographic location and maximising government, institutional and private business resources.
