The Chief Executive Officer, of Seplat Energy Plc, Mr. Roger Brown has said that with a significant part of African nations still lacking access to electricity, it is important for African nations to develop the Continent’s abundant gas resources to promote domestic access to clean power.

Brown who stated this at the ongoing Africa Oil Week (AOW) in Cape Town whilst speaking on a panel session dubbed “Monetising Africa’a Gas in the Next 7 to 10 Years” said the development would further the drive towards decarbonization.

Africa should maximise the benefits of its gas resources to the continent with minimal risks. A blend of domestic, regional, and international supply of the resource is required to build roadmaps for a balanced gas monetization strategy.

Africa, he stressed, has the right to develop and must use its natural resources to do that, noting that the transition cannot be funded solely by debt or outsourced.
