Africa Oil Corp., Vancouver, BC, said that Mark Dingley will join the company on May 1 as president of Africa Oil Ethiopia BV and chief operating officer of Horn Petroleum Corp.
Africa Oil holds an approximate 45% equity interest in Horn and provides the management of the business. Dingley will be based in company’s Addis Ababa office.
Dingley has 14 years of oil industry experience including 12 years with Talisman Energy Inc., where he was vice-president, Middle East operations, and general manager, Peru; manager, corporate security and surface risk; manager, government affairs; and deputy general manager, Sudan.
Africa Oil said it expects the addition of Dingley to be of great benefit as it commences operations in Ethiopia and moves to conduct further operations in Somalia through Horn.
