The Offshore West Africa Conference & Exhibition (OWA), owned and produced by the PennWell Corporation, is delighted to confirm and welcome Rave TV onboard as a Strategic Media Partner for the upcoming 20th anniversary edition of OWA in Nigeria.

Rave TV acclaimed as the first interactive Multi-Broadcast Entertainment Network in Nigeria with a global broadcast reach has in its one-year history carved a niche in its youth segment programmes. This partnership will focus on the showcasing of one of PennWell’s key Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives in West Africa: The OWA Youth Empowerment Initiative. Rave TV will through its various broadcast platforms enlighten audiences on the short, medium and long term benefits of The Youth Empowerment Scheme. The Youth Empowerment Scheme is run as a collaboration between Lonadek, The Energy Institute and PennWell using the OWA platform; the scheme seeks to promote and recognize young professionals that will be valuable assets in the West African offshore Oil & Gas exploration and production value chain.

In a joint statement issued by Rave TV’s CEO – Agatha Amata and PennWell’s Strategic Partnership Business Manager – Nick Richardson – “PennWell Corporation and Rave TV are pleased to be working together for the first time, and we look forward to a growing and mutually beneficial partnership that will showcase the various exciting programmes encapsulated in the Offshore West Africa event further.”

The 2016 edition of the Offshore West Africa conference & Exhibition will take place at The Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos, Nigeria from the 26-28 January 2016, continuing to be the premier conference and exhibition for the offshore oil and gas exploration & production industry within West Africa. The 20th edition of OWA will build on the success of the 2015 event, which also took place in Lagos and attracted a record breaking international audience of almost 2,400 leading oil and gas industry professionals from more than 30 countries worldwide. The event will continue to feature a technical and strategic conference program developed by an Advisory Board comprised of leading industry experts, as well as an exhibition showcasing products, technologies and services from global and regional oil & gas companies, held concurrently, bringing together exhibitors and attendees from around the world for three days of education, networking and new business development.

Offshore West Africa is a truly West African event and addresses key technology and development issues for the West African offshore Oil and Gas market, through a comprehensive educational program and three-day exhibition and conference, with the 2016 event focusing on Positioning for a Sustainable Future as the core theme.
