The 20th edition of Nigeria Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition (NOG) will hold a physical event on 5 – 8, July 2021 with the theme “Fortifying the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry for Economic Stability and Growth”.

NOG, which is organized annually by DMG Events, is Nigeria’s largest gathering of oil and gas event, attracting the world’s energy leaders, stakeholders, players, experts, investors to shaping the Nigerian oil and gas industry for growth opportunities.

Held under the patronage of the Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources H.E. Dr Timipre Sylva, and H.E. Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, Secretary-General of OPEC as the Honourary Conference Chairman, the event provides a platform for the international energy industry to meet with Nigerian oil and gas decision-makers to hear policy announcements, explore partnership opportunities and discuss the strategies that will drive the nation towards energy sufficiency.

Wemimo Oyelana, Director of dmg Nigeria events said: “Our commitment to delivering safe and secure in-person conferences and exhibitions that provide unrivalled opportunities to hear and engage on new policy announcements and explore investment opportunities, has been all the more reinforced by the need to strengthen the energy sector for economic growth, competitiveness and recovery. In preparation for the 20th edition of the Nigeria Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition, which is set to take place in person from 5 – 8 July at the ICC in Abuja, dmg Nigeria events are taking all the necessary precautions to maintain a strict standard of health and safety that meets the guidelines provided by the FCT Task Force and adheres to international best practices for in-person gatherings.”

Following the successful editions of NOG, H.E. Dr Timipre Sylva commented: “NOG has in the last 2 decades given the energy industry a unique platform bringing together Government, Legislators, IOCs, service companies and indigenous players to discuss policy, implementation challenges and agree on ways forward. This also proves the level of opportunities available in our country and the positive strides we have taken as the event has grown from year to year. I, therefore, call on all stakeholders to come together at the 20th NOG to tap into these available opportunities that will strengthen the industry and the country at large.”

Sarki Auwalu, Director Department of Petroleum Resources said: “I must congratulate the organisers of the Nigeria Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition event whose indefatigable efforts and commitment to value creation have, over the past two decades, provided the platform for Policy and decision-makers, executives and implementers, all at the highest level of Government, to elaborate policy directions, showcase opportunities for investments & partnerships, highlight major capital projects, deliberate on industry challenges and chart a path forward for the growth of the Nigerian Oil & Gas Industry. We, at the Department of Petroleum Resources – Nigeria’s Oil & Gas Industry Opportunity House and Business Enabler – join voices to felicitate with NOG on the attainment of 20th-anniversary milestone.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate dmg events for being consistent with NOG. I have grown from the back of NOG, just being a participant for many years… The NOG has become the biggest platform for energy discourse in Nigeria, and I dare say across Africa. This event has been one that has been very consistent and one that has continued to stay as the conscious of Nigeria in terms of developing as that energy corridor of Africa, to remain the giant of Africa. A special thank you to dmg events for the NOGs and I am personally looking forward to the event in July 2021,” Tony Attah Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) added.
