Petroleum Ministry’s maiden oil, gas trade show coming

The Ministry of Petroleum Resources will assemble upstream, mid-stream and downstream oil and gas experts from around the world for its inaugural Nigeria International Petroleum Summit (NIPS) scheduled for next February, at the International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja.

According to the summit’s Project Director, James Shindi, this will be the biggest technical and strategic business conference in the petroleum sector in Africa, as it will present best practices and emerging technologies to engineers, scientists, the academia, managers and executives.

The conference will exhibit companies that would feature the latest products and services.

‘’Industry professionals and companies know the value and return on investment of meeting and networking at gathering such as this, where the world will meet Nigeria oil and gas. Simply put, this event will explore innovations and technologies covering all things upstream, mid-stream and downstream,’’ the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, said.

This will be reinforced through the attendance of key political leaders, government officials and industry’s specialists from the National Oil Company(NOC) and other relevant government bodies and chief executive officers (CEOs) of National and international oil companies, multinationals and multilateral organisations, the academia and other relevant stakeholders, among others.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo launched the Nigeria International Petroleum Summit 2018 in the presence of 19 African Ministers of Petroleum and delegates who attended the African Petroleum Producers Organisation (APPO) meeting in Abuja.
