“Moving Projects Forward in a Low Cost Environment”

In March 2017, Lagos, Nigeria will play host to West Africa’s No.1 Annual Business to Business Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region.

With the current oil price the focus has shifted from ‘Produce at all Costs’ to a mind-set to one that favours producing in context. There is estimated to be at least another 100 billion barrels just waiting to be discovered in the region and this is why the Upstream West Africa Summit 2017 is such an important event to help with “Moving Projects Forward in a Low Cost Environment” in West Africa.

West Africa’s key oil producing countries which are expected to continue to list among those countries whose economies are expanding at the fastest rate on the planet with over 500 oil companies exploring for natural resources on the continent and considering Africa’s proven oil reserves have grown by nearly 120 per cent in the past 30 years, from 57 billion barrels in 1980 to 124 billion barrels in 2012, that is no surprise.

All Oil and Gas Companies will be looking toward moving projects forward in a low cost environment: NNPC, DPR, Ministry of Petroleum, Esso, SNEPCO, Chevron, Total E&P Nigeria, Oando, Sterling Exploration, NNDC, NPDC, KNOC, Newcross Petroleum, Conoil, Seplat, Sahara Energy, First E&P Nigeria and many more.
