Organisers of WAIPEC 2017 have unveiled an overview of its programme ahead of the three day conference and exhibition, taking place from February 21-23 at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.

The international exhibition is integrated with a first-class conference programme which has been specifically developed to provide real value and insight for all delegates.

Through a series of plenary and industry panel sessions and topical presentations, delegates will discuss, debate and explore innovative best practices, technological developments and alternative business and financing models relevant to Nigeria and West Africa’s upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas sectors.

Specifically, discussions will focus on how West Africa’s oil and gas sector can remain competitive in a tough global market, the role of technology as a transformer in the sector and setting out a realistic road map for valued-added local content and financing models in the region’s energy industry.

Speaking of the programme; Bank Anthony Okoroafar, Chairman of PETAN commented; “Under the lead of our steering committee, which represents a cross section of key stakeholders from the Nigerian oil and gas industry, WAIPEC’s programme has effectively been created by the industry for the industry.”

He added; “Sessions are designed to illustrate solutions successfully implemented in the sector to boost levels of production during an uncertain industry environment and share policy, technical and financial models for achieving national aspirations in better domestic utilization of oil and gas.”

With 200 participating companies showcasing projects, the latest technologies and expertise; the oil and gas sector has embraced this important event. As Sally Ikladious, Commercial Manager for WAIPEC explains; ‘there are commercial opportunities throughout Nigeria and West Africa and as the oil price recovers, Nigerian companies and Nigerian expertise will be at the forefront of the industry recovery. Hosting the event in Lagos makes sense as the commercial hub and ease of access for the majority of the industry.’
