Supporting oil and gas business

The South African Oil & Gas Alliance (SAOGA) is an outgrowth of a provincial government sector development programme around the oil and gas industry in the Western Cape Province of South Africa (a region that includes Cape Town, Mossel Bay and Saldanha Bay). This programme was focused on a significant cluster of upstream supplier companies that developed in the province in response to upstream growth in West Africa and the the establishment of domestic production in Mossel Bay in the late 1980s.

An indepedent non-profit entity known as the Cape Oil and Gas Supply Initiative (COGSI) was established in 2003 to become the main vehicle for promoting and developing the sector. The Board subsequently renamed COGSI the South African Oil and Gas Alliance to reflect the growing involvement of upstream suppliers from other regions and the fact that no other South African organisation focuses on the upstream supplier base.

Today we have a national footprint and focus although the Western Cape remains the de facto centre of upstream supplier activity in South Africa.

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.
