Services

Portfolio

Transactional advisory to state department of petroleum, Kenya.

Since 2017 we have worked as Financial Transaction Advisors to the State Department of Petroleum in Kenya, as part of a Consortium with Fichtner Management Consulting and Taylor de Jongh. Responsibilities include supporting Kenya’s Government on all contractual negotiations with the Kenya Joint Ventures (Tullow Oil, Africa Oil and Total). This extends to evaluating the financing terms of the 800km pipeline from Lokichar to Lamu. Our involvement also supported the signing of the Heads of Terms (HOTs) and the first Kenya Crude Oil Sale in 2019.

Financial advisory to power developer Anergi.

Since 2019 we have acted as Financial Transaction Advisors to London-based power developer Anergi. Our work includes advising on the gas conversion of their 90MW Heavy Fuel Rabai Power Plant in Kilifi, Kenya. Anergi is a holding company owning equity interests in seven generation assets with a total of 1,786MW (gross) and is a joint venture between Africa Finance Corporation & Harith General Partners. Leadwood is assessing the commercial viability of the gas conversion and supporting the Investment Committee in this decision. Our team is also advising the private sector on options for importing natural gas.

What happens to global emissions if Africa triples on natural gas for power?

“For the 48 countries and 1 billion+ people, effect would be equivalent to 0.62% of annual global emissions. Smaller than the emissions of single countries like Spain, Malaysia” https://t.co/Ha0pfFXEYw
