In order to tackle the ravaging global oil and gas challenges, Nigeria with other oil-exporting African countries will host the Chief Executive Officer of Panoro Energy, John Hamilton at Africa’s premier Energy Week (AEW).
The Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber (AEC), NJ Ayuk said in a statement that “The Chamber is honoured to host John Hamilton at African Energy Week 2022 where the executive will, together with other African energy market stakeholders, investors, and regulators, shape Africa’s own narrative of the energy transition.
“We commend the progress made by Hamilton and Ponoro Energy to boost investments across Africa’s energy landscape. In October, Hamilton will share insights on how the continent can accelerate energy funding, exploration, and output as we strive to make energy poverty history by 2030,” Ayuk added.
Hamilton will lead the discussion on African oil and gas market challenges and opportunities and the role independents such as Panoro Energy can play in boosting the continent’s hydrocarbon energy developments.
He will be speaking in panel discussions around local content development, securing investments in oil and gas, and improving exploration and production across Africa’s energy sector.
“Having spent over 25 years of his career in energy and upstream oil and gas financing, Hamilton will drive AEW 2022 dialogues around how Africa can address inadequate investments across the entire oil and gas value chain, boosting exploration and production,” the statement added.
After the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, many African countries have been struggling with how to survive in terms of oil exploration and exportation, thus the first African Energy Week.
The African Energy Week is the first African event for the oil and gas sector and its set to hold from 18 to 21 October in Cape Town, South Africa, and will play host to other African countries like Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, South Africa, and Tunisia,
Hamilton will represent one of the international majors driving upstream developments across Africa’s leading hydrocarbon-producing countries.
