Meet the Speakers

Augusto Artur Antonio Da Silva, Secretary General, AGC

“The Agency’s main objective over the next three years is the implementation of the drilling program in the AGC Central and the AGC Profound block raising a lot of interest from external companies and the AGC itself.”

Nino Meladze, HR Director – Mauritania & Senegal, BP

“In today’s changing environment, I believe the combination of a great technical foundation with good behaviours is the key to growing great talent – no matter where in the world you are operating.”

Isatou Auber Faal, Acting Managing Director, GNPC

“With a better defined PEPLA being finalized and the licensing process for open blocks currently ongoing, the dynamics of the industry will improve greatly in the next five years in The Gambia.”

Aguibou Ba, General Director, INPG

“When an industry is in its nascent stages, there are development opportunities at every stage. Ultimately, I envision the INPG as a veritable hub for the MSGBC basin — a regional entry point for companies and potential partners.”

David Pilling, Head of Oil & Gas Finance, Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking

“The MSGBC Basin is a relatively green-field space and being at the early stage of development there is tremendous potential to build meaningful multi-decade production hubs.”

“It was a pleasure being part of the local content discussions: a great idea to emphasize this major topic, a very well received initiative.”

Guillaume Arditti

Founding Partner, Belvedere Advisory

“Thank you very much for a very good conference. It was high energy and nicely focussed on a specific region, which, I think helped a lot. I appreciated the focus on content and ideas coming from the facilitators and chairpersons. Time keeping was remarkably good given the context of a networking conference. Attendance seemed very high and all important stakeholders were represented.”
