    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little homework
    on this. And he actually bought me lunch due to the fact that I found it for him…

    But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this subject here on your
    internet site.

      Dear Jean-Clement,
      After a break from Rwanda of a couple of years, when I worked with REG on a program with the EU to re-draft the MPs, I am aiming to get back to developing new projects with the advanced technology I have.

      My plan is to re-enter discussions for access to a gas concession once I have raised sufficient capital to build at least a demo-scale project of 5MW or alternatively to build a 50MW project.

      I have discussions going on the Rwanda and DRC sides of the lake, but first preference will be Rwanda.

      What is your role at REG?

      Regards, Philip
