Interview with Mamadou FAYE General Manager of PETROSEN, National Oil Company of SENEGAL
“I would begin by presenting PETROSEN, the national Oil Company of Senegal. PETROSEN was created in 1981, by the Senegalese Government. The main purpose of the company is to implement the policies of the Government in the upstream and downstream of the energy sector.
In the early days, PETROSEN had to conduct full evaluations of the petroleum potential of the Senegalese basin, which were followed by many international seminars to promote the open blocks to the oil and gas industries.
During many years, the promotion to attract investments from the oil industry has become the main activities of PETROSEN.
In the early 20’s, with the support of the new Government of the President Abdoulaye Wade, annual international conferences have been organized in Dakar, Senegal, by PETROSEN. However, without significant success in the exploration of the basin, the Government and many oil companies have lost interest in the conference.”
