Energy is still an industry of men, in particular the oil and gas industry. This is now about to change – thanks to such people as Katherine Richard.
She is one of the most important experts in gas production in America – including the controversial fracking technique. She is one of the youngest CEOs of an oil and gas company worth over 750 million dollars. Today, Warwick Energy, which she personally founded, owns more than 5,000 gas sources in 13 American states.
Since 2010, in conjunction with two think tanks, Richard has advised Afghanistan’s Ministry of Mines on the issues of transparency and development of the energy industry. Last year the Geneva World Economic Forum elected her one of the Young Global Leaders.
