NGWAFOR & PARTNERS have developed a successful practice in Oil and Gas, Mining and Energy. The clients with whom the Firm works are there to confirm a very positive story. The working relationship with HYDROMINE Inc., of New York, for example, has expanded to higher heights. Hydromine Inc. (including its affiliates) has been engaged in developing a variety of mineral projects including bauxite, iron ore, magnesium, nickel and coal, along with mining and processing of those minerals into intermediary products such as pig iron and metallurgical coke, plus the final step of making aluminium and steel. Together with its Dubal and Hindalco partners, they are now engaged in the mega-bauxite mining/alumina refining project in the Northern part of Cameroon. And because this involves the construction of a state-of-the-art refinery, Hydromine Inc. is also engaged in Hydro-electricity to generate sufficient energy for the project. Hence, NGWAFOR & PARTNERS have in their team highly skilled and experienced consultants on hydro-electricity.
