The months since the death of Colonel Gaddafi, the leader of this oil-rich country for over four decades, have brought little clarity for the international energy sector as it has sought to resume its former level of activity. The shadow of the former dictator is still cast over the sector as the National Transitional Council (NTC) begins an investigation into Gaddafi era contracts, while the apparent lack of security in many areas of the country is deterring some companies from returning. Although the opportunities are huge (the Libyan desert holds the largest proven oil reserves in Africa - 46.4 thousand million barrels) challenges to operating effectively and securely remain and require to be addressed.

AKE’s Libyan specialist Alan Fraser has spent a considerable amount of time in Libya this year and is the author of AKE’s Libya Oil Infrastructure Report, the first independent assessment into the security surrounding Libya’s vital energy infrastructure.

Alan will be available for free initial consultations on May Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 2012. If you would like to arrange an appointment with Alan, please contact [email protected]

Speaker: Alan Fraser, Libya Specialist, AKE Security
