Marc Hammerson, an oil and gas partner at Akin Gump, is quoted in Africa Oil & Gas Monitor for its article “Marginal opportunities in Nigeria,” on prospects for a new marginal field round. Hammerson, whose experience includes energy transactions globally, including Africa, noted that “Nigeria is moving in the right direction” and that plans for the country’s new marginal field round were in better shape thanks to “greater stability in the Niger Delta” and a “firmer commercial footing for companies to take part.”
He also discusses reasons behind underperformance of fields offered in the 2001 round and questions of financing for marginal field operators.
