Shell appoints Elohor Aiboni first female MD for exploration company SNEPCO
Global energy firm, Shell, has announced the appointment of Mrs. Elohor Aiboni as the Managing Director of its Nigeria deep-water business, Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Limited, SNEPCO.
She is the first female to lead the Shell exploration company in more than six decades of Shell’s operations in Nigeria. She succeeds Bayo Ojulari, who retired on July 31 after five years as SNEPCO MD, having served the Shell group for more than 30 years.

According to Shell’s Senior Vice President for Nigeria, Marno de Jong, “Elohor’s appointment is a product of diligence, competence and commitment to the Shell ideals and core values, amidst our strong focus on diversity and inclusion” “We take pride in our intention of being one of the most diverse and inclusive organisations in the world, and focus on further improving inclusion and representation in critical areas, including gender,”
