Energy development in Africa and the energy transition is a hot topic at the moment, and model contracts have an important role to play. Namibia’s Shakwa Nyambe will be sharing his expertise on this topic with an international audience at the AIEN Model Contracts Workshop this week.
The 2023 Association of International Energy Negotiators (AIEN) Model Contracts Workshop will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 19 to 22 September 2023. Shakwa Nyambe, Managing Partner of SNC Incorporated, is one of the speakers at the event and will share his expertise to a global audience of industry experts, policymakers and investors in the energy sector.
Nyambe will speak on “Energy Development and Transition in Africa: The role of Model Contracts”, and will highlight the way model contracts have helped facilitate energy development projects in Africa and the role they can play in the continent’s dynamic embrace of energy transition and the wide spectrum of contracts that entails.
The presentation will underscore the significance of model contracts such as joint operating agreements, gas sales agreements, asset sale and purchase agreements, gas transportation agreements, and farm-out agreements and their roles in facilitating energy development projects in Africa and energy transition as a whole.
“My participation at the Model Contract Workshop highlights my commitment to the energy industry and Africa’s growing energy needs,” Nyambe said. “I am looking forward to sharing and exchanging my expertise and services at the workshop.”
