Nestoil Limited showcased its expertise and innovative technology at the just concluded Nigerian Oil and Gas (NOG) conference in Abuja.
The annual conference organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Petroleum Resources and Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) with support from the private sector has remained the industry’s must-attend event, attracting participation from both local and international key decision makers; participating companies and exhibitors from the entire oil and gas value chain.
This conference discussed salient issues bordering on the future of the industry. Some of the issues included Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s commercial strategy and priorities, the impact of legislative amendments related to the Oil & Gas industry, tackling crude oil theft and pipeline vandalism through stakeholder collaboration and how policy changes can create an attractive and viable investment environment. The Nigerian Content seminar discussed strategies for increasing national capacity, value and capital retention.
As Nigeria’s leading provider of engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) services, Nestoil and its sister companies exhibited alongside over 250 companies and major players in the Nigerian energy sector, to showcase industry-defining expertise and innovative technologies.
Nestoil leveraged this year’s conference theme “A journey towards transformation,” to showcase the growth of indigenous capacity to investors and international oil companies. Over the past two decades, Nestoil has affirmed its industry leadership through execution of technically complex projects, which have contributed to the efficiency of its clients in the oil, gas and energy sectors of the Nigerian economy.
The company’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Ernest Obiejesi-Azudialu described the NOG as Nigeria’s version of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) held annually in Texas and enjoined operators to explore the opportunities afforded by the gathering to show our country’s potential to foreign investors and highlight the benefits of doing business in Nigeria.
He said: “Let us take the Nigerian Oil and Gas Conference as our version of the Offshore Technology Conference and leverage the opportunities it presents to highlight our economic potential to the world. Nigeria is currently undergoing a process of rebirth that will bring prosperity to everyone. As Nigerians, we have a duty to help the world understand this, and showcase the opportunities that come with the transformation that occurs in every facet of our lives as a people.”
