The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources (Oil), Heineken Lokpobiri, and Minister of State for Gas, Rt. Hon. Ekperikpe Ekpo including Ghanaian Energy Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has been confirmed to speak at the 23rd edition of NOG Energy Week, to be held from 30th June – 4th July 2024 in Abuja, Nigeria.

In a statement made known to The Energy Republic, the 2024 edition of the NOG Energy Week will showcase Nigeria’s energy industry’s opportunities to attract the much-needed investment to meet the growing energy demand.

This year’s NOG Conference, themed “Showcasing Opportunities. Driving Investment. Meeting Energy Demand”, comes at a time when the Nigerian oil and gas industry is going through several industry reforms, by President Tinubu’s led administration.

According to the organizer, dmg Nigeria events, this year’s NOG Energy Week promises to be the largest, with confirmed participation from exhibitors and delegates representing nations including the United States, China, India, Romania, Turkey, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, Switzerland, and Germany. 

The NOG Energy Week holds significant value and contributes to the growth and development of the Nigerian energy sector. Over the years, NOG has fostered connections among key stakeholders from local, regional, and international spheres, solidifying its reputation as the premier gathering in Nigeria for the global energy community.

The Honourable Minister of Energy for Ghana, H.E. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, who recently confirmed his participation in the NOG Energy Week, amplified the need for competitive financing to propel natural gas projects. 

Several African countries are harnessing gas and other cleaner and greener energies to drive their industrialization journey and economic development. African countries including Ghana and Nigeria are investing in gas infrastructure and promoting its utilisation, and by extension are addressing energy poverty and environmental challenges.

Nigeria, boasting gas reserves of over 200, recently announced plans to execute a gas strategy that will trigger the nation’s industrialization and economic growth. NNPC Limited’s Executive Vice President for Upstream, Oritsemeyiwa Eyesan, shared the organization’s plans to deepen domestic gas utilization for power generation in a bid to support the manufacturing sector. 

To transform the energy sector in West Africa, leveraging natural gas to drive economic growth and development is key. Gas for industrialization contributes to increasing energy transition progress across the region. 

From revitalizing key industries to fostering innovation, the strategic focus on gas underscores a commitment to propel West Africa towards a future built on energy security and economic resilience. Through the Decade of Gas Initiative by the Nigerian government, industry leaders

have continually conveyed a collaborative approach aimed at unlocking the country’s energy resources.

To drive progress in Sub-Saharan Africa’s energy market, energy stakeholders, government officials, regulators, and key industry players are set to attend the upcoming 2024 NOG Energy Week 2024, to deliberate on policies aimed at meeting West Africa’s energy demand. 

Speaking on what stakeholders should expect at NOG Energy Week 2024, the Country Director – Nigeria and Portfolio Director – Africa for dmg events, Wemimo Oyelana, said, “Our commitment for almost 25 years has been to provide a platform where industry leaders can have frank conversations that proffer solutions to the different challenges the industry is facing. NOG Energy Week has contributed significantly to key policy development & implementation over the years. We look forward to having industry stakeholders discuss pertinent issues including; Attracting International and Regional Funding Into Nigeria’s Energy Sector, Optimising the Significance of Natural Gas as the Fuel Of Choice, and Driving Industrialisation as a Catalyst for Economic Growth”.
