NIGERIA OIL & GAS CONFERENCE MOVED TO FEBRUARY 2017

Tectono Business Review gathered that Nigeria Oil & Gas Conference & Exhibition (NOG 2017), which was expected to parade more than 200 companies in the energy sector, has been postponed to 27 February – 02 March 2017.

According to the organisers of the conference, the decision was made after assessing the feedback from the industry and parastatals, while also taking into account the economic downturn in the oil and gas industry.

They also stated that, the exhibition, which had previously been scheduled for 13–16 June 2016 was moved to February in the best interests of clients, participants and the federal government of Nigeria.

We learnt that NOG 2017 would be backed by Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, NERC, NBET and the presidential task force on power. The event aims to bring together the entire value chain to discuss and debate critical issues, challenges and opportunities facing the Nigerian oil and gas industry post-privatisation.

The conference, which will be one of Africa’s largest energy exhibitions, expects to see participation from more than 200 companies and attract more than 6,500 visitors. The event will be hosted at International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja, Nigeria.
