Gas and oil exploration, an activity that is indispensable for oil and gas production, can be very costly activity for investors; the challenges in an African environment can be also very unique. TAGA is dedicated to helping members and interested stakeholders as the consider exploration activities in the continent.
WHO WE ARE
The Africa Gas Association sponsors and participates in a number of forums, partnerships and coalitions to foster dialogue on energy policy and achieve a better understanding of natural gas in Africa.
We help Governments understand the advantages of improving national oil and gas production through friendly tax policies during exploration phases. We also help Governments build efficient and sustainable policy frameworks with regards to production, distribution and storage of oil and gas products.
The impact of the Oil and Gas industry is critical for all countries. We seek to help public and government agencies to promote and adopt policies that enhance the benefits of Oil and Gas investments.
While there has been no relenting in Global demand for oil and Gas, we explore the supply and competition from newly found fields in Africa and the North American renaissance largely caused by shale gas exploitation.
Pipeline, storage and transport are key areas with direct consequences on the Environment. We explore how multinationals can meet very high environmental concerns that are recognised globally without over relying on nascent local policies.
TAGA is dedicated to exploring international tax considerations, the tensions between source and residence taxation of multinational enterprises and their employees and expatriates involved in the oil & gas.
Oil and Gas operations involve large amounts of capital. While the risks are high, failure is never an option. TAGA is dedicated to exploring successful business models and operations that will help members' African activities.
For investors, policies need to be friendly, stable, predictable and long-term, for governments policies need to reflect expert and industry knowledge, protect national interests, address environmental concerns and create national wealth. TAGA helps both African Government and Investors address these issues.
TAGA’s mission is to influence and support policies which promote a strong, viable and sustainable natural gas industry in Africa and beyond in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner.
The Africa Gas Association is the leading voice of the natural gas and energy industry in Africa. It seeks to become one of the most influential and respectful organizations in the global natural gas and energy industry.
Legal structures both international and national can have severe impact on the risk assessment for investors and host nations. We explore how legislation can be harmonised nationally and internationally.
