He then relocated to the Hague within Agip KCO, the Operator appointed by an International Consortium of seven O&G Majors for the development of Kazakhstan offshore assets.
He has also held the positions of General Project Development Manager Egypt-Petrobel and as Development Director of Mozambique-Eni East Africa Operator for the Area 4 Rovuma Basin gas discoveries.

In 2017 Concetto was seconded to the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative’s (OGCI CI) investment arm to support the Net Zero Teesside Project and to accelerate the OGCI investment plan on CCUS. This required leveraging a multi-stakeholder approach including OGCI Member Companies, the UK Government, and public and academic entities active on decarbonization plans.
