Eland Oil and Gas was founded in 2009 with the vision and strategy to become a high-growth, West Africa-focussed independent exploration, development and production company. In under ten years the Company has achieved exactly this, with record production levels from its core asset, OML 40, marking 2018 as the Company’s most successful period so far.
Join Eland Chief Executive Officer and Founder, George Maxwell, to hear him discuss the history and growth of Eland, its operational milestones, and the Company’s goals for the future.
George has over 20 years of oil industry experience in both the producing and service/manufacturing arena. He was Business Development Manager for Addax and, prior to this, Commercial Manager in Geneva. George joined Addax in 2004 and held the General Manager’s position in Nigeria where he was responsible for finance, and fiscal and commercial activities.
Prior to this, George worked with ABB Oil & Gas as Vice President of finance based in the UK with responsibilities for Europe and Africa. He held a similar position in Houston, from where the organisation ran its operations in 10 countries. George was Finance Director in Singapore for Asia Pacific and Middle East, handling currency swaps and minimising exposures during the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s.
