Jean Claude Gandur
Oryx Petroleum Corporation Limited
Jean Claude Gandur founded the Addax and Oryx Group in 1987 with three associates from the energy industry, and focused on Africa. With an instinctive ability to recognize new opportunities, he rapidly diversified the group's activities from oil trading, to downstream storage and distribution, before launching into upstream exploration and production in 1994, and a pioneering bioenergy project in 2008. Following the sale of Addax Petroleum in 2009, he initiated the creation of Oryx Petroleum. Mr Gandur has a degree in law and political science from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
