5th May 2021
CeraPhi Energy is please to announce the latest addition to its team, Nezar Ashfar, former Baker Oil Field Services Operations and Business Development Manager with more than 33 years of experince in international drilling actvities in the energy sector.
“It’s great to have Nezar onboard as we now start active engineering projects and opportunities within the region,” said Karl Farrow, Ceraphi Energy CEO.
“The CeraPhi Energy business model is exactly what is needed within the region and we are already seeing a huge amount of interest from all angles,” said Ashfar. “Decarbonization is a challenge in general but regions where the climate changes very little also need an impact solution and one that is linked to the legacy business and the core strengths and skill sets which is oil production. CeraPhi solutions provide a natural transition to clean energy using the skills and expertise within the region from the Oil and Gas sector.”
“Nezar is well known to some of the CeraPhi team historically,” Farrow said. “He has been deeply engrained in the region for many years so is ideally placed to lead the energy transition challenge within the region where we are already dealing with technical and commercial proposals for our deep geothermal integrated energy solution.”
Ashfar holds a master’s degree in engineering from Strathclyde University along with numerous studies in Project Management, Advance Finance for Business, People, Team Performance Optimizations, and Situational Leadership. He has been responsible for the development and management of multimillion dollars contracts in many counties across the region in senior roles for UK and USA oilfield services companies and major operators within the region as he takes up the role of Middle East North Africa Manager for CeraPhi.
