1 Tope Shonubi, Co-Founder and CEO of Sahara Group, a leading international energy and infrastructure conglomerate headquartered in Nigeria with operations in more than 42 countries, will speak at the 2022 edition of the African Energy Week (AEW) (https: //www..AECWeek.com/) conference and exhibition: Africa’s premier event for the oil and gas sector, taking place from 18-21 October in Cape Town, as a speaker.
2 Shonubi’s participation in the continent’s largest event for the energy sector is crucial to discuss solutions to critical industry challenges and highlight opportunities in Africa’s expanding oil and gas industry.
3 As one of the leading movers and shakers in Africa’s energy sector, Shonubi is working valiantly to optimize the continent’s upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas sectors to make energy poverty history by 2030.
4 Through its vast experience in developing energy projects, Shonubi has built Sahara Energy into not only one of the largest energy conglomerates in Nigeria, but also one of Africa’s fastest growing hydrocarbon companies with a strong presence in upstream operations in Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Ghana.
5 Shonubi’s enthusiasm to replicate Sahara Group’s success across the African continent, with the company now aiming to rejuvenate markets like South Sudan through better oil and gas investments, is a strong testament to the executive’s continued commitment to resolving the continent’s burning problems, including lack of access to electricity, fuel shortages and stagnant economic growth.
6 With Shonubi advocating for Africa to implement collective approaches to maximize the potential of its energy sector for GDP growth, AEW 2022 serves as the ideal platform for Shonubi to share best practices to boost the production and exploitation of the world’s vast hydrocarbon resources.
