Nigeria’s energy specialists have reached a consensus that gas is the fuel of choice for Nigeria and are determined to present this position at the forthcoming World Energy Day (WED) Conference billed to hold in Abuja next week.
This position of Nigeria on energy transition is expected to be unveiled at the Conference organised by the National Chamber Policy Centre and Partners holding next Thursday at the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The event to be declared open by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is to be addressed by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timpreye Silva as the keynote speaker.
According to the organisers, the conference is to have four panel sessions covering gas to power solutions, gas within the context of energy transition, the question of infrastructure and constraints and the impact of new Petroleum Industry Act on the gas sector.
“We have a distinguished list of panelists who are critical operators within the industry. The conference is a gathering of the best minds around to chart a sustainable path for Nigeria within the context of global push for energy transition.
“The hint we are getting is the trend towards gas as fuel of choice. Public and private sector actors will brainstorm on this vital subject. We are set to host this high-profile event in an endeavour that is going to be an annual gathering of who is who in the energy sector”, Olawale Rasheed, Director at ACCI Policy Centre said.
Key Industry leaders expected at the conference include the Nigeria Gas Society, Shell Gas, Gas Aggregation Company of Nigeria, Nigeria Gas Marketing Company, Niger Delta Power Holding Company of Nigeria, top officials of the new NNPC Limited, corporate Chiefs from multinational oil corporations and energy experts from across Africa.
