Founder and CEO of TSAVO Oilfield Services, Eng. Elizabeth Rogo, has been appointed by the African Energy Chamber as its President for East Africa. Based in Nairobi, Elizabeth will represent the Chamber across the region, including Kenya, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi.
Her appointment reflects the African Energy Chamber’s continued growth across the continent and comes at a time when African energy markets require stability and cohesion to maintain the continuity of operations across industry segments as oil prices plunge.
“Elizabeth is a representation of African entrepreneurship in the sector and a true expert when it comes women in our industry, and a true pan-Africanist. She will head our activities in East Africa at a time when the region’s energy industry is entering a new era of growth and diversification and we look forward to her journey with us,” said NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman at the African Energy Chamber to East Africa and local content development.
In her new role, Elizabeth will contribute to the Chamber’s main growth priorities, especially with regard to growing local content and building domestic capacity, promoting women in the energy sector, promoting entrepreneurship across the region, encouraging policy reforms and ease of doing business, and promoting investment in oil and gas and main segments of the power industry.
“It is an honor for me to be joining the African Energy Chamber and to give a stronger voice and representation to Kenya and the whole of East Africa in the global energy scene,” Elizabeth Rogo said.
“There is a lot to be done in our region when it comes to local content development across the value-chain and the adoption of the right policies to promote investment. I look forward to my work with the African Energy Chamber and to further contribute to the growth of our energy industry in the region,” she added.
