Dr Ernest Azudialu-Obiejesi had his first stint in Business and Entrepreneurship when he joined his father’s family business in 1978. After 5 years of detailed tutelage under his father, Dr Azudialu-Obiejesi was ready to plunge into the business world. He set up his first company – Obijackson West Africa Limited, which was essentially a trading company across the West Coast of Africa and beyond. In no time Obijackson became the forerunner of businesses spanning Oil Servicing, Exploration and Production, Engineering Procurement Construction and Commissioning (EPCC); Dry Dock Services, Power, Aviation and Dredging. 

Dr Azudialu-Obiejesi’s flagship company Nestoil is by far the biggest EPCC Company in Nigeria’s vast Oil and Gas industry. With Neconde’s acquisition of Shell’s OML 42 Oil Field in 2011 Dr Azudialu proved that limitations only exist in the minds of men who choose to recognize them. Beyond the impressive reserves, OML 42 has 6 TCF of gas reserves to be developed in the next 4-5 years towards delivering about 500 million Scf of gas per day to the domestic gas market. Another one of his companies – Century Power Generation is currently developing a 1500MW gas-fired power plant in Okija, Anambra State.
