PETAN rolls out full programme of SAIPEC 2023 features and B2B opportunities

The Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) has detailed the full programme of activities for the 7th edition of the Sub Saharan Africa International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (SAIPEC 2023), featuring a host of B2B networking and partnership opportunities, spread across five days.

Beginning on 13th February and preceding the main conference, discussions will open up at the African Content Series seminar, hosted by NCDMB and PETAN. Attended by a select number of NOCs, regulators, governments and private sector representatives, it will showcase local content best practices and provide an overview of Africa’s hydrocarbon resource base and the factors that lead to the introduction of local content in the oil and gas industry.

The main conference programme will begin on 14th February over three days, placing its emphasis on the future of the energy, oil, and gas industry in Sub Saharan Africa with local content and regional collaboration continuing at the nucleus of the conversations.

Mr. Chinedu Maduakoh, Managing Director of Topline Limited and SAIPEC Conference Chairman explained; “Industry stakeholders should expect richer insights from our experienced national, regional and international industry leaders and partners at SAIPEC 2023.

“It is well established as a pragmatic platform for international collaborations, which has aided the delivery of greater insight and intelligence on strategies to power the African market for the future using the African Continental Free Trade Area AfCFTA Agreement to bring together regional capabilities.”

He added; “Asides from the topical debates and business, technical and special focus sessions, SAIPEC’s African Content Series (day two) will address the successful implementation of Local Content and opportunities across a series of discussions with heads of NOCs, IOCs, and independent and indigenous oil and gas companies.”

Other areas of the conference programme will cover country specific showcases, the energy transition, diversity, equality and inclusivity – through SAIPEC’s Women in Industry programme and youth empowerment.

The free to attend SAIPEC exhibition will be open from 14 – 16 February, featuring a record number of exhibitors that span various companies specialising in services across the energy, oil and gas value chain.

Finally, a plethora of networking opportunities underpins the main conference and exhibition proceedings including the SAIPEC Awards, a Valentines Ball, drinks receptions and PETAN’S golf day as the concluding event on 17 February.

A full overview of the programme is now available to download via the SAIPEC website .

‘The BIG SALE’: NAPE Schedules ‘Opportunities in Divestments’ Summit

By Olujonari Takomie, in Lagos

The event aims to focus on the possible benefits to stakeholders

The Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE) has announced a workshop to highlight the opportunities in the ongoing divestments of assets by the major international companies operating in Nigeria.

The event, scheduled for July 21, 2022 in Lagos, the country’s commercial capital, “gathers critical stakeholders, decision makers and eminent speakers of the Nigerian oil & gas industry to discuss opportunities, barriers, and solutions to challenges to harness the opportunities in the Nigerian oil & gas divestments”, declares James Edet, NAPE President.

The organization says there have been multiple divestments of oil and gas assets in Nigeria’s onshore and shallow offshore areas in the last 15 years, and “the scale of these divestments keeps getting larger and more frequent”.

NAPE is a 47-year-old association of geoscientists working in the hydrocarbon industry. It is also the largest grouping of technical professionals in any of Africa’s oil and gas producing jurisdictions.

NAPE members have played a prominent part in the divestment process through time. Four of NAPE’s past Presidents have been founding CEOs of four of the country’s top 10 homegrown independent oil and gas producers.

But the proposed event is planned to be a bigger tent: involving speakers and discussants from the banking, legal, regulatory as well as the divesting international operating companies themselves.

“While we focus on the ‘why’, it is also important to focus on the possible benefits to stakeholders”, Mr. Edet (Ph.D), explains in a note.

“This workshop”, he explains, “will x-ray the Nigerian oil & gas divestment activities till-date along this discourse lines:

  • Opportunities from divestment for local players, operators, servicing companies and upstream to midstream infrastructure owners.
  • Solutions to key barriers, challenges, and issues that prevent access to divestment opportunities
  • Implication of Divestment on National Revenue, Community Engagement and Local content
  • Challenges of insecurity, crude theft, and asset decommissioning
  • Funding challenges, divestment strategies and incentives
  • PIA the new laws and policies; regulator’s role in divestments
  • to enable the identification of opportunities for all national companies, operators, servicing companies, down-mid-upstream infrastructure owners”.


Experts To Discuss Global Opportunities For Nigeria Energy Sector At NOG 2022, Abuja, Nigeria

The 21st edition of Nigeria’s foremost energy event, NOG Conference and Exhibition is set to hold in person at the International Conference Centre, Abuja from 4 – 7 July 2022.

dmg Nigeria events, the organisers of the event stated that NOG 2022 will host key stakeholders from across the global energy value chain to discuss unique opportunities for Nigeria’s energy resources in the face of global energy demand.

The conference will also discuss key issues such as financing opportunities for energy projects in sub-Saharan Africa, bridging infrastructure gap for improved domestic gas market, opportunities for indigenous companies in the PIA era, technology innovations for decarbonatization across the value chain, and other critical topics, that will help set the nation’s energy agenda for the next 12 months and beyond.

AOGS Energy Webinar Series

Theme: Energy Transition and Implications for Nigeria’s Economy – A Critical Assessment

Oil Majors, especially of the European extraction, are taking ambitious steps to commit to green energy targets and investments. According to the United States Energy Information Agency, EIA, the oil industry faces increasing demands to respond to the low carbon agenda. And leading the response are European companies like TOTAL SE, which in 2020 announced a $7b write-off in its Canadian “proved reserves” – that gold standard of value for oil companies. The action probably signaled early steps at transiting from an Oil Major to an Energy Major. With similar actions from Shell, BP, ENI, etc., it seems the energy transition train has literally left the station.

Is Nigeria’s 40 billion barrels proved oil reserves (or parts of), at risk of being written off someday to be replaced by green energy assets in the oil (sorry, energy) majors’ portfolio mix? Long shot?

Join the conversation at the AOGS Energy Webinar Series and see if and how the future of the Nigerian oil industry is likely to be re-calibrated and what it may mean for the economy and business. Sub-themes include:

  • Global Trends in Energy Transition
  • Regulatory framework on Net Zero Positions in the Oil and Gas Industry
  • Energy Transition and Nigeria’s Crude Oil Reserves Development Strategy
  • Local Content and Energy Transition Implications
  • Energy Transition and Nigeria’s Business & Economic Environment
  • Nigeria power sector in the face of Energy Transition
  • The impact of Energy Transition on the financial sector
