There’s arguably never been a more important time to look at energy in Africa. In this edition of The Burning Platform, the team speaks to an expert on this matter. NJ Ayuk has spent two decades negotiating African oil and gas deals, and now has a grasp of the continent's energy landscape that few can match. He shares why Africa's fledgling natural gas industry can become an international powerhouse, how the continent can improve its notoriously unreliable, economy-sapping power industry, why American energy companies should stop curtailing their investments in Africa, and why the continent's energy industry needs more women. Brought to you by Nando’s.
