Africa, where both production and demand for energy are forecast to grow, is the centre of operations for the Association’s two newest members – in both senses of the word.
Aker Energy joined IOGP at the end of January, just a year after it was founded to become ‘the offshore oil and gas operator of choice in Ghana’.
Aker Energy’s initial focus is the Pecan development project in the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points block some 70 miles offshore Ghana. Pecan will be the fourth producing field in the region.
Aker Energy’s IOGP Member Representative is My Tran, the company’s Risk and Safety Performance Manager.
West Bakr Petroleum Company, operating in the onshore Eastern Desert area of Egypt, first established production in 1980. In 2013, TransGlobe Energy acquired the rights to the concession operated as a joint venture company on behalf of the Egyptian General Petroleum Company and TransGlobe Energy.
West Bakr’s focus is on projects that aim to increase production and recoverable reserves from the concession.
West Bakr’s IOGP Member Representative is QHSE General Manager Adel Fahmy Mohamed.
