On 15 May 2020, industry leaders gathered to highlight how private equity and project developments have been affected by COVID-19 and the role LNG will play in the future.
The fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic has rattled both the oil and gas and finance sectors. Investors and business owners will face new obstacles in getting projects off the ground in the coming years, with only the most competitive oil and gas projects and well-positioned companies moving forward. Speakers on the public webinar – under the theme ‘Driving African Energy Investment — Perspectives on LNG, Oil and Gas Operations, and Private Equity,’ – focused on how the private equity market will recover, the projects that will attract investors in the current climate, and how companies can access investment and continue to thrive.
Speakers included Nyonga Fofang, Managing Director, Bambili Group; Steve Brann, Senior Investment Manager, Vitol, and Kola Karim, Managing Director and CEO, Shoreline Energy International.
Shawn Duthie, Managing Director of Inyani Intelligence
James Chester, Acting CEO of Africa Oil & Power
