In its 4th stint, the Nigeria Content Investment Forum (NCIF) powered by Sweetcrude Reports and The Guardian has captured a level of seriousness to engage with indigenous Nigerian small-medium enterprises and government officials to support local content in the “giant of Africa”.
In 2017, the forum included participants and speakers from the Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), the Bank of Industry (BoI), Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) and the African Finance Corporation (AFC) among others.
The Forum was created to serve as a platform to bring Nigerian oil and gas SMEs who have manufacturing pedigree together with international original equipment manufacturers of components, including but not limited to upstream development,
upstream operations and logistics, downstream and midstream. The forum will stimulate collaboration between Nigerian SMEs and the OEMs towards local manufacture of key inputs of oil and gas production, transportation, and distribution.
The forum enables credible stakeholders to share experiences, identify possible synergies in the various areas
of operation so that professionals and entrepreneurs alike can collaborate to develop and optimize Nigeria’s hydrocarbon asset as well as those in other Sub-Saharan African countries. In addition, the forum showcases the gains of the Nigerian Content Act and the opportunities for collaboration, growth and development contained therein.
The Nigeria Content Investment Forum Dinner tagged: “Celebration of Excellence” is scheduled to hold on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018 during the week of the renowned Offshore Technology Conference at 6:00 PM at The Houstonian Hotel – Juniper Hall.
Speakers will include industry leaders from the Houston metropolitan area and Nigeria’s oil and gas sector.
