Shakwa Nyambe, Namibian Lawyer, Appointed President Elect of the Global Body of Energy Negotiators

Shakwa Nyambe, Managing Partner of Windhoek based SNC Incorporated, has been appointed as the President-Elect of the Association of International Energy Negotiators (AIEN) for the period of 2024 -2025.

His appointment was confirmed at the AIEN Board of Directors meeting held on the 10th of June 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand.

This will pave the way for him to become the Substantive President of the AIEN for the period 2025-2026.

Mr. Nyambe is the first African to lead and be elected as President-Elect of the AIEN in its history since it was founded in 1982.

“As Nyambe transitions from his role as Vice President of Communications, his new position as President-Elect places him at the forefront of AIEN’s strategic initiatives”, his office notes in a release. “This role is pivotal for directing the association’s future direction and reinforcing its standing as a global authority in energy negotiations. His tenure as the Regional Chapter Director for Africa and his previous responsibilities have already demonstrated his capability to drive growth and promote collaboration within the industry”.

Although the association’s roots are in Houston, Texas, USA’s upstream oil sector, it has now grown to be a truly global organization serving the needs of cross-border energy negotiators in the upstream, midstream and downstream hydrocarbon sectors, AIEN professes on its website. It is now represented in more than 110 countries, representing numerous international oil and gas companies, energy companies, host governments, law firms, consulting firms and academic institutions. AIEN members come from a variety of disciplines, which include commercial, technical, academic and legal.

“Nyambe’s journey with AIEN began as an ordinary dedicated member, leading to his role as Regional Chapter Director for Africa. His leadership significantly contributed to the growth and success of AIEN’s African Regional Chapter, establishing it as a crucial platform for industry dialogue and engagement”, his office says.
