Jeffrey has been working in the Oil and Gas sector since 2010 when Ghana commenced oil production in commercial quantities. With a mechanical engineering background, Jeffrey had a smooth transition into an industry hitherto alien to majority of Ghanaians. Within the shortest time Jeffrey was working effectively both onshore and offshore on Ghana’s Jubilee Fields. 

Jeffrey has an ingrained philosophy that one can only work effectively as an engineer in any field if there is a perfect mix of on-the-job practical experience and learnt academic principles under one’s belt. After selling this philosopy with track record of experience to the prestigious Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme, he was given the opportunity to study MSc. Subsea Engineering and Management at the Newcastle University in 2013. 

After successful completion of his Newcastle studies, Jeffrey was part of the team that procured, fabricated and installed infrastructure on the TEN Field Ghana’s second commercial field. Jeffrey through his company has the opportunity to work on a number of international projects and also working with highly powered teams to solve some of the challenges of the sector in Ghana. 

Jeffrey truly believes beyond the mere acts of tokenism; the Ghanaian is well able when truly given an untethered opportunity. He is a testimony of such and always grateful to the sector players in Ghana. Jeffrey aims to form a consultancy team with partners to provide services in the oil and gas sector.
