Nigeria's petroleum industry is the largest in Africa with proven oil & gas reserves of 37 billion barrels (bbl) and 192 trillion cubic feet respectively. The sector contributes about 10 percent to the country's GDP and accounts for 95 percent of all exports.
Given that Nigeria's gas reserves have remained largely untapped, the country is expected to make a shift towards becoming a major producer and exporter of gas.
With ongoing reforms in the sector and improved engagement with host communities, Nigeria is positioning herself to be the foremost oil & gas investment destination.
The official Nigeria International Petroleum Summit will therefore create the perfect platform for the world to meet Nigeria's oil & gas industry players, and will be:
· A meeting between key Nigerian political decision-makers, government officials as well as directors and specialists from the Ministry, NNPC and other relevant governmental bodies on the one part and Directors of National & International companies, multinational and multilateral organisations, the academia and other relevant stakeholders, etc on the other
· An international exhibition of economic operators, national and international companies and potential investors coming together to present new technologies and knowhow in the petroleum sector
WHEN: 19-23 February
WHERE: International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja, Nigeria
