Centurion Law Group will participate as a gold sponsor at African Energy Week 2023, contributing to a new wave of sustainable investments in African energy.

Committed to facilitating investment in Africa’s energy sector, Centurion Law Group has joined the African Energy Week (AEW) conference as a gold sponsor. This highly anticipated event, scheduled for October 16–20 in Cape Town, will serve as an opportunity for the firm to further expand its presence in Africa’s energy sector, offering expertise, support and guidance to African nations and investors alike.

Centurion Law Group specializes in providing legal services for cross-border business and energy matters to corporations spanning across 57 countries. The group’s dedication lies in driving Africa towards a future of improved energy and economic prosperity. It achieves this by offering customized services that fit the specific operating conditions of its clients. In doing so, the group ensures successful project structuring, development, financing, implementation and operation. With a deep understanding of Africa’s energy sector and a strong pan-African network, Centurion Law Group is highly regarded as a strong partner for both local and international stakeholders.

In the realm of oil and gas, Centurion is undeniably a leader in Africa, representing oil and gas companies in numerous countries across the continent. Its status as a ‘go-to’ law firm for the oil, gas and mining sectors is a testament to its ability to anticipate and minimize risks, protect assets and enhance reputations in dealing with African business environments. The firm has a strong track record of negotiating oil and gas contracts, making it a trusted partner in the industry. Additionally, the firm’s vast experience allows it to offer valuable advice in the structuring, financing and operation of oil and gas projects, covering various aspects such as production sharing contracts, joint operating agreements and financing options.

When it comes to power and renewables, Centurion Law Group acknowledges the growing importance of the renewable energy sector in Africa’s future energy transition. The group is actively providing services in this strategic sector, offering creative and business-oriented solutions to clients in both conventional and renewable power projects. The firm’s assistance encompasses all project stages, including financing, engineering, construction, and regulatory matters. African nations and private companies can leverage this financing to assist with the acceleration and efficiency of project development. As the energy sector experiences a global shift towards a lower-carbon future, Centurion Law Group is at the forefront of advising companies seeking to adapt and invest in renewable sources. Its team is well-equipped to handle regulatory challenges and guide clients through acquisitions and investments in lower-carbon sources. Its market expertise and knowledge play a vital role in helping companies achieve their energy transition goals.

In the mining sector, Centurion’s lawyers possess in-depth knowledge of the dynamic regulations and policies governing mining activities in Africa. The group excels in advising clients on complex mining transactions, ensuring regulatory compliance, and providing valuable expertise in environmental, social, permitting, and tax matters. This is particularly important in Africa, as many countries have a mining sector that is vital to their economies and development. Mining plays a significant role in generating revenue, creating jobs, and contributing to the overall growth of these nations. However, the mining industry in Africa is often subject to complex and ever-changing regulations, as well as various environmental and social challenges that require careful navigation. Centurion Law Group’s in-depth knowledge and expertise in this sector ensures that clients can effectively address these complexities, adhere to legal requirements and operate responsibly, fostering sustainable and mutually beneficial outcomes for both the companies and the countries they operate in.

“Centurion Law Group’s influence in the energy sector is evident through its extensive experience, expert advisory services, and successful representation of clients across various energy and natural resources domains in Africa. The firm’s commitment to guiding businesses in project development, risk management and regulatory compliance positions it as a leading force in Africa’s energy landscape,” states NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber (AEC).

With a resolute dedication to adding value to Africa’s energy industry, Centurion Law Group is positioned to make a significant impact on the continent’s energy landscape and contribute to its economic growth. As a gold sponsor of AEW, the firm reinforces its commitment to the sustainable advancement of Africa’s energy sector and the well-being of its people.
