- Sub-Sahara Africa Oil, Gas’ll Complement Industry Value
Group Managing Consultant and Chief Executive Officer, Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit and Exhibition and Invest Africa Energy, Dapo Ayoola, said the Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit and Exhibition was created as a clearing house for oil and gas practitioners, investors and all who support the value chain process.
This platform, he said, would make countries of the sub-Sahara Africa including Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda and Ethiopia to come together so as to see what each country is doing very well and also help them correct mistakes made in the past. He noted that the Invest Africa Energy is an integral part of Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas.
He said the platform would also open up the market in Africa and turn it to a global market.
“We want to see Nigerians go to Tanzania, Nairobi as consultants, we want to see our investors in Addis Ababa or in Nairobi, it is a new thing we are bringing on board, exchange of ideas and best practice and supporting each other to succeed,”he said, adding that the idea of looking for consultants who do not understand the complexity of the African community should not be encouraged.
The fourth Sub-Sahara Africa Upstream Oil and Gas Summit and Exhibition, scheduled for next month, he said, was being organised by Zenith Professional Training (ZPT), a firm with several years of building oil and gas capacity through industry specialised trainings.
