In an uncertain political and economic climate, innovative leadership remains the greatest competitive advantage in the oil and gas industry
With increasing geopolitical pressures impacting the cost efficiency of the global oil & gas industry, it is the operators and service providers who most effectively balance people and technologies that will adapt and then prosper.
As upstream activity becomes increasingly expensive, industry leaders must improve operational efficiency and seek to optimise collaborative partnerships to mitigate rising risk within the industry. Having the right people will be a critical differentiator for those who succeed.
The oil and gas industry is undergoing unprecedented growth in Africa, especially on the east coast where recent gas discoveries are transforming local economies in countries such as Mozambique and Tanzania.
South Africa is well positioned to become a major oil and gas hub, but a global shortage of skills in the industry at management and executive level threaten the industry’s growth in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Odgers Berndtson Sub-Saharan Africa Oil & Gas Practice advises operators, upstream and downstream service providers on securing world class executives.
