Manage episode 344726569 series 3229415
Gabriel Onagoruwa chair of the project development and finance practice at Nigeria-headquartered law firm Olaniwun Ajayi stars in this week's Infra Dig podcast.
In a fireside chat-style interview with IJGlobal editorial director Angus Leslie Melville, Gabriel – who operates out of the firm's London office that opened in 2021 – speaks openly about the reality of emerging nations driving renewable energy agendas.
A key part of this podcast is the role that will be played by gas as a transition fuel to power nations around Africa... but also the dire need to invest in energy generation across the continent.
Conversation ranges from the role of ESG through to COP 27 which is being hosted next month in Egypt, the role Africa plays in ensuring energy security for the rest of the world... and oil and gas... love it or hate it, as Joseph McMonigle secretary general of the International Energy Forum says, upstream O&G needs to rise to $525 billion every year to meet demand.
