Heritage Oil Limited has announced the appointment of Adogbeji (Ado) Oseragbaje as its new Chief Executive Office with effect from the 14th of July 2022.
He will also lead HOL’s Nigerian operations as Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Energy Operational Services Limited.
“Ado brings a wealth of experience to the role that will be of huge benefit to the company and its stakeholders, particularly in Nigeria”, says Michele Faissola, Chairman of HOL. “We are delighted to appoint a person of Ado’s calibre as our new Chief Executive Officer.”
Oseragbaje “brings twenty-five years of global leadership experience in the oil and gas business and joins us from Baker Hughes where he was Vice President covering Sub-Saharan Africa”, according to the company statement. “He has previously held senior positions, including at General Electric and Schlumberger, across the world”.
HOL’s new CEO holds a Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College London and a Diploma in Real-Time Oilfield Project Management from Heriot-Watt University Scotland. “I am excited to join the Heritage team”, he says. “The Company has a diverse portfolio, world class assets, the potential for future expansion and an ambition to join in addressing the dual challenge of energy security and sustainability. I think we are a great fit and I’m looking forward to this opportunity.”
Naeem – Atiq Sadiq, has now stepped down from his current role as Chief Executive Officer of HOL and HEOSL but will remain with the company for an interim period to facilitate a smooth handover to Oseragbaje.
Heritage Oil was founded in Canada in 1992 and was acquired by Energy Investments Global Ltd in 2014.
