This year’s 10th international gas conference and exhibition by Nigerian Gas Association (NGA) scheduled for between 30th October and 2nd November 2016 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, is expected to be declared open by Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, who will also deliver the Keynote address.
The presence of government delegation led by Osinbajo will reinforce NGA’s desire to see the commitment of government towards ensuring that gas takes its pride of place in the country.
NGA President, Bolaji Osunsanya stated: “Nigeria is slowly turning to gas as a primary driver of the nation’s development which is a further indication that the government has a prominent role to play.”
The theme of the conference “Nigerian Gas Roadmap: Potential for Domestic, Regional and Global influence” according to industry stakeholders is quite apt for this period especially with the country’s interests in the West Africa Gas Pipeline, Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited and the challenges in the power sector both in Nigeria and immediate vicinity.
In a statement signed by the association’s Publicity Secretary, Debo Fagbami, NGA said that “the conference will stimulate the much-needed conversation on a range of important and diverse perspectives regarding natural gas development and its economic benefits to Nigeria”.
