The 2023 Africa Oil Week has been eventful for the Pecan Energies team. It’s been a week full of meaningful activity with some major highlights.
First, there was the chance to show the world the new Pecan Energies identity following months of extensive rebranding from what used to be Aker Energy. Hundreds of participants at this year’s AOW engaged for the first time with our new vibrant logo, our bright and radiant colors, and the compelling message infused in our tagline. The Pecan Energies booth was hard to miss, attracting great positive attention and offering an excellent opportunity for the team to introduce people to our story.
The Deputy President of South Africa, His Excellency Paul Mashatile, was a high profile guest at the Pecan Energies booth. He was met by the Chief Executive of Pecan Energies Ghana Limited, Ms. Kadijah Amoah, supported by Mr. Per Arne Nilsen, Pecan Project Manager, and SVP Subsea, and Mr. Ifor Roberts, SVP Subsurface, Drilling & Wells.
Also visiting the Pecan Energies booth was Osam Iyahen, Head of Natural Resources and Senior Director at Africa Finance Corporation (AFC). He is also a Board Member of Pecan Energies Ghana Limited. AFC owns Pecan Energies.
Another major highlight was Ms. Amoah’s brilliant contributions to the panel discussion on local content on day one of the AOW. She held the room spellbound, earning at one point a spontaneous applause from the audience.
This was also a week of fruitful business meetings across the board. Ms. Amoah also sat down with CNBC Africa, the business and finance news channel, to talk about the Pecan Energies’ new brand and the Pecan field project. The Pecan field is the largest of seven discoveries in the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) contract area with 268 million barrels in reserves and 282 million barrels in additional discovered resources. The entire contract area has an exploration upside of 400 to 500 million barrels.
The Pecan Energies team is already looking forward to next year’s Africa Oil Week as it makes good progress towards a Final Investment Decision.
