Cheikh Benhmeida is the Chief Executive Officer and Owner of Sepco Industries.


Graduated from “Institut Français du Pétrole” (IFP) France as a petroleum engineer, Mr Benhmeida worked previously with Schlumberger for 18 years in various countries.


Mr Benhmeida has industry certifications, which reinforced his knowledge and know-how beyond his experiences and training.


After his position as Oilfield Services Regional Manager in Schlumberger Mauritania, Senegal and Morocco, Mr Benhmeida decided to launch Sepco Industries Mauritania late 2012 with the main objective of providing added value services in the region in order to increase industry local impact and contribute to lower operation costs for clients and hence maximize profit oil for the benefits of the local population.


In 2018, Sepco Industries Senegal is created. This event confirms Mr Benhmeida willingness to expand the success realized in Mauritania to Senegal and neighbouring countries and be truly local example for future Senegalese entrepreneurs who may want to follow Sepco industries example. Indeed, Sepco aims to be a visible example for others in the region.
