Opportunities have opened up in the Oil and Gas, Energy and Telecommunications industries. Some of the key developments in the next few years will occur in the petroleum sector, which is entering a new era of refocusing on the delivery of value added services such as the opening of the refining space to medium scale refining projects; greater focus on the utilization of natural gas and development projects.

Opportunities continue to exist in the Power Mining, shipping and Aviation sectors .
