The NAPE President’s Opening remarks were brief. He told the distinguished gathering that this year’s conference was a continuation of the conversation which started at last year’s conference when the nation ex-rayed the oil and gas industry and attempted to proffer solutions to tackling the realities then.
The keynote paper was delivered by Dr Emmanuel Egbogah , OON on the theme: Transforming Nigeria’s Oil and Gas Industry to Meet Global Demand-Supply Realities. In his Presentation, Dr. Egbogah surmised that by 2020 the industry will remain the highest source of revenue to the Nigerian government and that government should do more to improve the sector and create more opportunities. Dr Egbogah added that: what is more important is for the government not to see the oil and gas industry as a source of income to just fund her budget, rather they should see it as a value creation opportunity to improve the economy.
Other Speakers at the event included: Mr Toyin Olagunju, General Manager Corporate Services, SPDC, who stood in for Mr. Osagie Okunbor, Managing Director, SPDC and Chairman, Shell companies in Nigeria; Mr. Nicholas Terraz, Managing Director/ Chief Executive, Total E & P Nigeria; Dr. Mason Oghenejobor who represented Mr. Austin Avuru, FNAPE, Chief Executive Officer at Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc.
