Victoria Oil and Gas, a gas utility company with operations in the industrial port city of Douala in Cameroon, is pleased to announce its success at the 2015 Petroleum Economist Awards, held on September 17, 2015 in London.
VOG won the "Energy Company of the Year (Small Cap)" award.
VOG has been one of the few companies to successfully monetize gas in sub-Sahara Africa by developing the Logbaba gas field in Douala, Cameroon. It has done so with the full support of the Government of Cameroon and its partner RSM of Denver. Through its subsidiary Gaz du Cameroun S.A it is delivering gas to thermal and power customers in the private sector and to grid power suppliers.
The Petroleum Economist Awards is an annual event designed to celebrate the people, companies and projects which epitomise the best of the global energy industry. The scheme's judges included: Abdalla El Badri, Secretary General of Opec; Torstein Indrebø, Honorary Secretary General of the IGU; and Malcolm Graham-Wood, founding partner of HydroCarbon Capital and acclaimed industry commentator. The winners were announced at a black-tie ceremony held on 17 September 2015 at Banking Hall, City of London.
VOG Chairman Kevin Foo said, "We are honoured to have been recognized with this award, as a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams in Douala and London. VOG has made great strides in the last 12 months and we are now a growing utility company in Cameroon."
