Lower oil prices and reduced industry activities have the Nigerian oil and gas industry asking two questions surrounding Nigerian Content compliance requirements. First, what level of compliance is realistic amid the current operating environment? And secondly, what hidden opportunities can be discovered through Nigerian Content initiatives in the oil and gas sector and within other industries?  

Themed ‘Re-energising Nigerian Content for Todays’ Operating Environment’ the sixth annual Practical Nigerian Content (PNC) Forum, taking place from 22-24 November 2016 and held in Abuja for the first time, will explore the challenges being faced by industry players and facilitate the development of new strategies to strengthen Nigerian Content in todays’ operating environment.

Engr Simbi Wabote, addressing the plans of the NCDMB declared, “We are going to take stock of how far we have implemented the Act, where have we made progress and [ask] where do we need to change our tact and strategies? How have we been able to achieve some of the targets set out in the schedule? Where are we in each of those categories and the big ones we need to focus on to move to the next level?”

Dr Anthony Akah, Ag Chairman & CEO of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission and Inye Kemabonta, ag national coordinator for the Office of Nigerian Content in Information & Communication Technology will also join Engr Wabote and Hon Ekon to discuss Nigerian Content legislation and governance in the Power and ICT sectors.
