Read as cosmos energy appoint Senegalese Dior Ndiaye as it’s vice president
An international oil company, Kosmos Energy, has appointed a Senegalese national, Khady Dior Ndiaye, as Vice President and Regional Director for West Africa.
Dior would lead Kosmos Energy’s operations in the West African region at very important times for the company and for Senegal which expects to be producing first oil and gas within two years.
Reacting to her appointment, the African Energy Chamber said it’s encouraged by Kosmos Energy’s decision to appoint a woman to such highly exalted position.
The chamber described the appointment as a “very positive step towards promoting women in leadership positions in the oil sector,”
“The appointment of Khady Dior Ndiaye is a brilliant move and it is in line with our belief that women can and should lead. The oil industry cannot be the last bastion of male domination.
“Congratulations to Kosmos Energy for showing the way for others in Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Mozambique, Nigeria, Angola or even South Africa to follow,” said Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber, Nj Ayuk.
Ayuk, who is also the author of “Billions at Play: The Future of African Energy and Doing Deals,” wished her all the best in her new role, assuring her of the African Energy Chamber’s support to lead the region towards greater prosperity.
African Energy Chamber demanded more action from the International Oil Companies (IOCs) and African governments on empowering women in oil and gas sector.
