Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis signed a letter of intent to establish a future relationship between Equatorial Guinea’s National University and Tech, according to a news release.

“This agreement presents Texas Tech with excellent opportunities for our university to partner with Equatorial Guinea’s National University,” Nellis said in the release. “We look forward to a productive collaboration that will undoubtedly benefit both institutions in various ways.”

Equatorial Guinea is an emerging energy power in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the release. It is Africa’s third-largest producer of oil.

The country is seeking U.S. partners for developing its engineering, agricultural and tourism-related sectors, Vice Provost for International Affairs Tibor Nagy said in the release.

“This is a perfect match for Texas Tech,” Nagy said.
