TOGY Gabon 2014 LaunchOctober 20, 2014
The Oil & Gas Year Gabon 2014, the second TOGY report on the market, was launched at the Afrijet Terminal in Libreville in October. Exclusively sponsored by the terminal’s owner, Gabonese airline company Afrijet, the event was attended by Minister of Petroleum and Hydrocarbons Etienne Dieudonné.
In addition to TOGY’s energy report, the minister also received the award for Legislation of the Year in recognition of the passage of Gabon’s long anticipated and wide ranging Hydrocarbons Code.
Published by Wildcat International and produced in partnership with the Ministry of Petroleum and Hydrocarbons, APIEX and UPEGA, The Oil & Gas Year Gabon 2014 presents an in-depth look at the developments of the country’s oil and gas industry, including interviews with major stakeholders such as Gabon Oil Union president Jacqueline Bignoumba, winner of TOGY Gabon Woman of the Year award, and Total directeur genéral adjoint Théodore Iyezé, who accepted the Local Content Developer of the Year on behalf of Total, which won the award for financing the construction of the Centre for Professional Specialisation to provide national workers engaged in hydrocarbons activities with the necessary technical skills. Gabonese Company of the Year went to local drilling company Foraserv, represented by general manager Marc Tchango. The accolades were awarded by TOGY publisher Emmanuelle Berthement and country director Marielle De Leener.
The Oil & Gas Year Gabon 2014, a carefully researched market report on a nation whose ultra-deepwater gas reserves are drawing international interest, also features the results of a strategic roundtable featuring key industry stakeholders and public representatives. The roundtable highlighted the importance of local content to making Gabon into a more attractive investment destination, as well as the country’s potential to become a major oil and gas hub in the region.
