Centurion, a pan-African legal and energy advisory group, has announced the upcoming launch of a bespoke training programme on transparency and good governance for South Sudan’s oil industry and companies
This training will serve as a pilot programme before being expanded to the rest of Africa’s important oil growth markets such as Equatorial Guinea, Senegal and Ghana.
It will be offered to both national companies and the private sector.
NJ Ayuk, CEO of Centurion, said, “Transparency and good governance are not only pillars of a performing and efficient business, but they are also central in building investors’ confidence, attracting capital and signing solid joint-venture deals and partnerships.”
“Complying with the latest international standards and best practices in terms of good governance will make oil companies more competitive on the regional and international stage,” he explained.
The programme has been developed by Centurion’s team of attorneys in cooperation with African and international experts in the domain.
It will be delivered as part of the company’s growing social responsibility programme, which will also see the organisation in Juba in the coming month of the workshop on domestic capacity building.
