The African Energy Chamber (AEC) (www.EnergyChamber.org) is proud to announce that Marco Villa, COO of engineering and technology service provider Technip Energies will speak at the next leg of the Invest in African Energy roadshow, taking place at the Westin Paris Vendome in France on June 1. Representing one of the biggest oilfield service providers globally with a significant presence across the African market, Villa will drive the discussion on amplifying E&P activities in African markets while connecting with high-level executives from across both the public and private sectors.
For his part, Villa has been instrumental in positioning Technip Energies at the forefront of Africa’s energy sector transformation, leveraging his over 20 years’ experience to expand the company’s footprint as well as its contribution towards African oil, gas and green hydrogen projects. Villa’s extensive experience in hydrocarbons development and project financing continues to be key for Technip Energies’ growth agenda, and will also be valuable at the Invest in African Energy Forum in Paris where discussions will largely center on Europe-Africa partnerships and the role French companies play in developing and monetizing African resources.
Having emerged as a pioneer in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Floating LNG (FLNG) solutions, Technip Energies continues to play a central role in developing large-scale LNG projects in Africa. Providing an alternative to onshore processing facilities, Technip’s FLNG solutions have paved the way for sizeable projects to get off the ground faster than traditional development timelines, and the company’s success has been noted across the entire continent. Specifically, the company has been involved in developing the Coral South FLNG project in Mozambique – which witnessed its first export of LNG to Europe in late 2022 -; the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim development offshore Senegal/Mauritania – which expects first production this year -; and more recently, has joined Namibia in the development of the country’s two major discoveries made in early 2022 by global majors Shell, TotalEnergies and Qatar Energy.
However, Technip also offers innovative onshore services, with the company participating in the development of several impactful projects in Africa. Onshore, the company is involved in projects to the likes of the Secunda Plant in South Africa; the Rovuma LNG Project in Mozambique and the Tilenga Project in Uganda. Additionally, the company has been driving local content and capacity building initiatives, promoting the development of the local population through a series of training programs continent wide. As such, Technip Energies continues to make its mark in Africa.
“Technip Energies has and continues to play a significant role in driving successful oil and gas project developments in Africa, with the company involved in a series of large-scale developments across the continent. With a focus on LNG and hydrogen, Technip Energies has quickly emerged as the partner of choice for both existing and emerging oil and gas producing countries, helping the continent develop its immense natural gas resources through innovative LNG solutions,” stated NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman of the AEC, adding that, “We are excited to host Marco Villa in Paris. During the forum, Villa will not only drive market-oriented discussions around Africa’s LNG future, but will directly connect with African energy and petroleum ministers as well as high-level private sector executives.”
During the Invest in African Energy Paris Forum, Villa will not only provide insight into the strong pipeline of successful projects currently underway by the company, but will engage with African policymakers and energy leaders towards signing new deals and partnership agreements. The Invest in African Energy Paris Forum offers the perfect opportunity for Technip Energies to consolidate its position as the partner of choice for African oil and gas producers.
Taking place on June 1 2023, the Invest in African Energy Paris Event is open to all guests and RSVP is essential. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
