Welcome to Women in Oil and Energy South Africa

Black women in South Africa have either been at the lowest end of any form of business opportunity, or totally excluded. It therefore is imperative for women to focus cohesively on addressing their unique position in order to address these facts. WOESA’s first priority is to facilitate women’s participation in business opportunities in the oil, gas and energy sector in South Africa.

WOESA offers services to its member companies, organisations and individuals, that focus on developing a knowledge base and building capacity amongst women through education and training. We facilitate access to business opportunities; we do advocacy work for women by participating in drafting legislation and policies.

Transformation and the development of historically disadvantaged women is not only what we talk about; WOESA is there to ensure that equal opportunities for women and particularly black women in South Africa become a fact in the Oil and Energy sector.

The WOESA Group consists of a Non-Profit Company, an operating company and several investments through which we participate in the Oil; Gas and Energy sectors.


Opportunities for South African women to participate as members through their companies in activities of the NPC, and also opportunities to partner in economic activities.
