Recognizing the toll that the Covid-19 Pandemic has taken on the oil and gas industry, Centurion law Group will assist small and mid-sized African businesses that are currently dealing with the economic impact of the Coronavirus, which is hitting many African countries, as well as crisis occasioned by global dwindling oil prices .
With a strong African footprint, Centurion believes it is an opportunity to give back to a continent that has given so much to it and promises to offer assistance to local services companies in our countries of operation on contractual disputes, employment issues and compliance matters as it pledges also to extend support to multinational entities at significantly discounted rates.
“While we believe that the industry will bounce back from this and come out even stronger and more united, we feel a great sense of duty at this time when the worst effects of the crisis are being felt on a daily basis,” stated Managing Director of Centurion Law Group, Zion Adeoye.
In this regard, Centurion says it is synergizing with the African Energy Chamber in its call for relief measures and tax incentives for oil and gas companies to ensure that jobs are protected, and business can rebound.
