Centurion CEO discusses African opportunities with Chinese oil and gas investors

NJ 2A team of attorneys from Centurion is in China this week to participate in the EG Ronda Licensing Roadshow being held at the Kempinski Hotel Beijing

Led by CEO Nj Ayuk, the team is meeting with several high-profile Chinese executives and energy companies seeking to invest in sub-Saharan Africa.

The roadshow is organised by the African Energy Chamber on behalf of Equatorial Guinea’s Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons.

With the biggest names amongst the Chinese energy firms involved, including companies such as CNPC, PowerChina Group, Sinopec, Sinochem, CNOOC, Shenergy, CMEC and China Minmetals Corp, Centurion had the opportunity to discuss considerable deals in several African oil markets.

Nj Ayuk said, “Centurion’s presence in China for the EG Ronda Roadshow is a mark of our commitment not only to Equatorial Guinea but to the promotion of Chinese investments across Africa.”

“China is serious about investing in Africa, and Chinese investors and companies are looking for reliable African legal advisors and partners to efficiently do business in our continent. This represents billions of dollars of investment-ready to support the development of the African oil industry,” he declared.

The firm has a specific desk dedicated to Chinese companies and investors and has been increasingly working to diversify the flow of funds into the extractive industries of Africa, working with fresh partners from Russia, Turkey and the Middle East.
