Gas-to-Power Can Drive African Industry

NJ Ayuk, CEO of Centurion Law Group, was interviewed by DW News on how Africa can use its oil and gas resources to benefit the continent.

“The bright, big idea is gas-to-power — that is going to be the big thing. I always say, you cannot run industries with generators. You really have to turn your game up, use your resources locally and really drive growth,” Ayuk said in the interview. “Because when you drive growth within Africa, everybody participates, and I think that is the future of the African oil and gas industry.”

The interviewer talks about Ayuk’s book, Big Barrels: African Oil and Gas and the Quest for Prosperity, and asks why Africa should rely on its oil and gas resources for growth.
