Date: 3rd - 7th February, 2014

Venue : HOLIDAY INN - Ghana | Fee: $3,900USD | Register Now
  • OVERVIEW OF THE COURSE:
    Significant progress is being made with the Nigerian Gas Master Plan, positioning it to better support major industrialization of Nigeria. Perhaps the most compelling use of gas for industrial development in Nigeria are in the following areas:

    1. Power,
    2. Agriculture (Fertilizer), and
    3. Petrochemicals

    There is a direct correlation between power and industrial development, fertilizer and agricultural production, as well as gas–conversion industries and the petrochemical sector. Gas is critical to Nigeria achieving its ambitious energy plan. Power generation in the country, will have to rely heavily on natural gas as a critical feedstock. So also will the petrochemical industries.

    Agriculture accounts for about 35%, of Nigeria’s gross domestic product (GDP). Any increase in agricultural production in the nation will automatically result in an increase in the nation’s GDP. The land in Nigeria is however under nourished, to improve agricultural output will therefore require increased fertilizer application, among other improve farming techniques. It is this light that gas is critical to agriculture in Nigeria

    A major thrust of government effort in this regard is anchored around new policy initiatives, legislative and infrastructure frameworks. The recent introduction of the Local Content Law also creates a significant boost in enabling indigenous entrepreneurs to better position themselves and participate in the emerging opportunities. However, natural gas is necessarily more complex and dynamic than crude oil.
    This course, the third in its series, provides an unprecedented opportunity to understand the current status and next steps in the implementation of the Nigerian Gas Master Plan, and to position effectively to leverage the opportunities.
