The African Energy Chamber said it had appointed former BP and Equinor executive Sergio Pugliese as its president for Angola with effect from May 1.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the chamber said Pugliese would support its partners in unlocking value in Angola’s multi-billion-dollar oil and gas market and also lead its efforts to support President João Lourenço’s government in its drive to restructure and strengthen the sector.

Pugliese is a seasoned entrepreneur and Angolan oil executive with years of experience from working with international oil companies BP and Statoil.

He also founded and is the executive chairperson of Angola-focused oil and gas services companies Motiva LDA and Amipa LDA, and Africa-focused investment company AIDAC.

NJ Ayuk, CEO of Centurion Law Group and executive chairperson at the chamber, said: “Sergio’s credentials, experience, and knowledge of the oil and gas industry make him the ideal addition for the African Energy Chamber as we increase our footprint in every oil-producing country.”

The African Energy Chamber works with governments and businesses to boost the growth of the African energy sector under international standard business practices.
