Success Stories

“I’ve had several meetings to discuss problems where we’ve been trying to find solutions and couldn’t, and because of these interactions we’ve been given ideas. We’ve received partnership propositions which we plan to take to the next level. When we actualise these partnerships we will remember that it all started at WECA”

Bala Wunti

Group General Manager, Corporate Planning and Strategy, NNPC

“We’re getting lots of interest from those who want to gain exposure to a world class basin – yesterday I had 7 meetings with IOCs and Capital Providers. When you’re a small or mid cap you’re always looking at how you’re going to structure your capital for the next deal and WECA is the ideal place to gain those contacts or progress relationships”

Jose Penafiel

CEO, Madalena Energy

“Very glad to see such a strong attendance and a motivated and interested audience at WECA. When you see the quality of the panellists and you hear the themes being discussed, it’s what’s important to industry players like us and getting peer’s perspectives on this in a thought-provoking forum, is very valuable.”

Sean Martyn

Managing Director, Baker Hughes Capital Solutions

“WECA is the place I meet everyone and the best deals are done in these kind of places. When you put all these executives together in one room for 2 days, we share information, ideas and mutual interests which fuels the industry”

Gil Holzman

CEO, Eco Atlantic Oil & Gas
