The Nigeria Oil and Gas Logistics (NOG Logistics) conference and exhibition will attempt to bring together stakeholders from across the oil and gas logistics sector to discuss and develop ways to make project delivery improvements
The discussions will take place during the event's conference on the final day of the three-day trade show, which will take place in Nigeria in June of this year.
According to conference organisers CWC Group and NCI, there are currently no guarantees that logistics will come in on time, despite the fact they typically account for between four and five per cent of costs on an oil and gas project budget.
As a result, NOG Logistics will attempt to create an industry platform where stakeholders can meet and agree methods within the current infrastructure to drive down costs and increase efficiencies.
CWC Group project manager Natalie Bacon said, “This is a very exciting tim¬e – the logistics industry is making positive steps to sharing resources, boosting offshore security, overcoming bureaucracy and addressing local content."
The conference will feature high-level representatives from across the oil and gas logistics industry who will gather at the NOG Logistics workshops, which will be led by an advisory committee of representatives from NAPIMS, Shell, Addax Petroleum, Total, Nigeria LNG, LADOL, Century Ports, Temile and DHL.
According to CWC, workshops will attempt to offer delegates an opportunity to share challenges, lessons learnt and formalise achievable solutions, under the Chatham House Rule of no reported press.
Luke Anele, general manager materials management at NAPIMS, will close the discussions by summarising the agreed actions and listing instruments for ensuring successful implementation and realising the true value and impact.
NOG Logistics will take place from 4-6 June 2013 and will be held alongside sister trade show Nigeria Oil and Gas Technology (NOGTech) at the Eko International Expo Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.
