We are pleased to advise that our Guest Speaker at the 30th PetroAfricanus Dinner on Tuesday 13th April in London will be Dr Peter Dolan, Advisor to the Board of Directors, Ophir Energy.

Ophir Energy has emerged in the last few years since formation in 2004 as one of the key deepwater players in West and East Africa, with large and prospective acreage held in a range of blocks in the AGC, Congo, Equatorial Guinea (with gas discoveries made there), Gabon, Nigeria-Sao Tome JDZ, Western Sahara (SADR), Somaliland, and in Tanzania. The Company has long had African investors, plus acquired new investors such as Mittal, and it also remains a rightholder in the Ibhubezi gas field offshore South Africa’s west coast. Peter Dolan has had a long and distinguished career in the global and African oil industry. He was the Inaugural Nominee for the Conrad Gerber Award 2009 given by the African Institute of Petroleum for “Outstanding Contribution to Africa”, and is the author of a landmark geoscence work on Western Africa (Mauritania to Namibia): 100 Years Of Oil & Gas Sub Surface E& P Activity, done just over a decade ago for Ikoda. Prior to engagement with Ophir, he was active in African E&P in a number of frontier-breaking corporate ventures, notably in the creation of deepwater portfolio in Northwest and Western Africa. Later he was instrumental in the formation of Ophir Energy, the shaping of its strategy in and across Africa, as well as in guiding the Board of Directors over the years since inception.

The Dinner will follow our 7th African Petroleum Forum 2010, to be held at the Geological Society on the same day, and delegates to the Forum, with 13 Speakers, may attend this PetroAfricanus Dinner as part of their registration fee, while it may also be separately booked.

PetroAfricanus has established a worldwide reputation as a key private network for management, African deal-making in oil and gas, and new business relationships for the Continent – supported in Year-2010 by our Corporate Patron Preng & Associates. PetroAfricanus Dinners take place in a private and unique setting. Available places are limited, and early booking is always recommended. Machiavelli’s Rules. No Press.

We hope to see you there
