Billions at Play is a Comprehensive but Entertaining Look at Africa’s Oil & Gas Present and Future
Two decades of negotiating African oil and gas deals have given NJ Ayuk a grasp of the continent’s energy landscape that few can match.
The American-educated, African energy lawyer serves up generous doses of that insight in his second book, “Billions at Play: The Future of Africa Energy and Doing Deals.”
He offers a road map for the continent doing a better job of using its vast energy resources to improve its peoples’ lives. He addresses how African countries can use their energy industries as springboards for diversifying and growing their overall economies.
The book’s underlying theme is that — in Ayuk’s words — “too often, our natural resources create wealth for foreign investors and a select group of African elites while everyday people fail to benefit.”
