Through its subsidiary Gaz du Cameroun S.A it is delivering gas to thermal and power customers in the private sector and to grid power suppliers.
The Petroleum Economist Awards is an annual event designed to celebrate the people, companies and projects which epitomise the best of the global energy industry. The scheme's judges included: Abdalla El Badri, Secretary General of Opec; Torstein Indrebø, Honorary Secretary General of the IGU; and Malcolm Graham-Wood, founding partner of HydroCarbon Capital and acclaimed industry commentator. The winners were announced at a black-tie ceremony held on 17 September 2015 at Banking Hall, City of London.
VOG Chairman Kevin Foo said: "We are honoured to have been recognized with this award, as a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams in Douala and London. VOG has made great strides in the last 12 months and we are now a growing utility company in Cameroon."

The Company's subsidiary, Gaz du Cameroun S.A. ("GDC"), supplies cost effective, clean and reliable gas to industries in the Douala region from its onshore Logbaba Gas Project. Industrial customers are primarily supplied with gas through a 31.3km pipeline network built by GDC in Douala.
