Theme of the Fair
The theme for this year's fair is: ‘Maximizing Investments in The Oil and Gas Industry for the benefit of the Nigerian People’.
NOGOF says the objective of "this biennial fair is to bring together major players across the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors as well as the government agencies and industry regulators, to showcase opportunities in the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry and present available in-country capacity".
Chevron Nigeria Ltd, ExxonMobil Nigeria, Greenville LNG, Nigeria Agip Oil Company, Pinnacle Oil & Gas, Shell Petroleum Development Company, Total E&P Nigeria and many more Upstream, Midstream and Downstream Oil and Gas companies, will have more than 20 project presentation opportunities at the fair.
Organizers say the fair is aimed at reinforcing to investors that Nigeria is indeed ready for the oil and gas business, while re-emphasizing the point that the park will bring about localization of indigenous companies where fabrication, pipe milling, procurement hubs, and oil and gas related technologies will flourish.
