Zenith Energy, a junior oil & gas company listed on the London Stock Exchange, is committed to producing and donating PPE and sanitising gel for developing countries, primarily in Africa, where its operations are located.
Zenith announced today it hopes that an order for three protective mask manufacturing units, capable of producing up to 50,000 protective masks per day, will be completed during the month of May 2020.
The Covid-19 pandemic has seen businesses change the focus of their operations, as well as embrace solidarity towards more vulnerable nations. It is believed that developing countries will need greater sustained assistance for medical equipment for months, until a vaccine can be widely distributed. The use of PPE and sanitiser is of fundamental necessity.
Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer at Zenith, commented:
“Our core focus is the development of oil and gas production assets in Africa. However, we recognise that the world is currently experiencing unprecedented challenges for which civil society and commercial enterprises must proactively find ways of adapting to successfully overcome the challenges at hand.”
Zenith is listed on the London Standard Market (LSE: ZEN) and the Oslo stock market (OSE: ZENA-ME).
