According to Aljazeera, Zambia confirmed gas and oil residues. They discovered a dozen sites in the northwestern provinces of Zambezi and Chavuma, near the border with Angola, the southern African country.
NJ Ayuk has an in-depth knowledge of Africa’s oil and gas. In May 2017 his Law Firm was assigned by Equatorial Guinea government to follow up and make it possible for the oil-rich nation to join its fellow petroleum-rich nations in OPEC bloc.
He recently published a book co-written with João Marques, titled ”The Big Barrels‘ African Oil and Gas and Quest for prosperity.
NJ Ayuk’s book ” The Big Barrels” confronts the misinterpreted view that energy-rich countries undeniably suffer from and often victimized by the effects of the ‘resource curse’.
All in all, the question on everyone’s mind is ”could NJ Ayuk and his energy law firm possibly play an instrumental role to aid Zambia to achieve her oil and gas ambitions?.
