Igiehon Takes Charge of Shell Gabon

By Fred Akanni

Anglo Dutch major effects leadership changes in its Africa operations

Osayande Igiehon is taking over the affairs of Shell Gabon from Godson Njoku, who has now been promoted to the position of Vice President for Production Excellence (the highest ranking job for any African), Shell worldwide.
Igiehon was Shell Nigeria’s Technical Integration and Petroleum Engineering Manager, a position he held after a six month stint as Petroleum Engineering Manager, Shell Upstream Nigeria. A former Chairman of the Nigerian Council of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (2012-2013), Igiehon was regional discipline lead for reservoir engineering at Shell Upstream Africa between April 2010 and March 2013. But his career is not entirely about petroleum engineering.  He was lead asset Business Planner and Senior Business Planner for Shell Petroleum Development Company, the corporation’s largest subsidiary in Nigeria, from January 2004 to December 2006. In January 2007, he was promoted to Business Adviser to the Executive Vice President, Shell E&P Africa.
Shell’s production in Gabon has dwindled in the last decade, but the discovery of the Leopard-1, considered by the company as significant gas find, in deepwater presalt formation, in 2014, has lit up the country on the Shell map as a possible new heartland. Mr. Igiehon will be managing the appraisal and possible development of this property going forward, as well as the remaining onshore asset.
Igiehon and Njoku’s career movement is part of a larger crew change in Shell’s Africa operations. In mid-October 2015, Bayo Ojulari took over the function of Managing Director of SNEPCO, the exploration and offshore arm of the Shell operations in Nigeria. He took over from Tony Attah, the high flying Shell Manager, who ison assignment to broaden his scope in the gas business at the company’s global headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands. Mr. Attah is expected to return in a couple of years to become Managing Director of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG), in which Shell holds the largest private equity (26%) and is operator. The 22MMTPA NLNG is also the largest liquefaction facility in which Shell has interest.
