Gandur got his start in oil trading. Later through control of the Addax & Oryx Group he parlayed contacts in Africa into oilfields in Nigeria and a vast network of fuel storage and distribution assets across Sub-Saharan Africa. Was among the very first movers into Iraq. Sold publicly traded Addax Petroleum to Sinopec for $7.3 billion in 2009, but still operates a vast fuel distribution business in sub-Saharan Africa.
