The Ras Al Khaimah government has appointed Nishant Dighe as the new chief executive officer of Ras Al Khaimah Petroleum Authority (Rakpa), the new regulator responsible for the emirate's licensing round tendering process.

This follows the recent appointment of Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi as the chairman of Rakpa, said a statement from the authority.

On April 2, the Government of Ras Al Khaimah announced the official launch of the Licensing Round and the establishment of Rakpa – the new regulator responsible for the Licensing Round tendering process and ongoing regulation of the petroleum sector in Ras Al Khaimah, it stated.

Dighe, who is the chief executive officer of RAK Gas, has been appointed to Rakpa on an interim basis until completion of the award of the petroleum rights under RAK’s 2018 petroleum licensing round.

Once the process gets over, a permanent appointment will be made to the post, it stated.-TradeArabia News Service
