10 March 2014, Lagos – As part of its commitment to the development of the Nigerian economy, Access Bank Plc has gone into partnership with the CWC Group, an international non-governmental organisation renowned for creating opportunities and developing knowledge, to support this year’s Nigerian Oil and Gas (NOG) conference.
The event commences in Abuja from next Monday.
Specifically, the conference is expected to address steps the country must take to evolve and maintain its position as Africa’s leading oil and gas producer amid increasing intercontinental competition, and how the Nigerian industry as a whole must address the crippling impact of oil theft.
Now in its 14th year, the NOG conference has proven to be the most veritable engagement platform for policy makers and operators in the sector.
The conference would be opened by the Minister for Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Similarly, Access Bank’s Group Managing Director, Mr. Herbert Wigwe, is expected to join other industry experts to deliberate on how to overcome the challenges facing the growth of independent and indigenous producers and service providers in the oil and gas sector and ways of supporting them to overcome the challenges.
“By this, Access Bank will again demonstrate its exceptional capacity and knowledge of the Nigerian oil and gas sector which arguably has positioned it as the preferred bank of operators in the sector. In recent times, the bank has increased its support for local and international operators through series of funding arrangement, intermediation and advisory services,” a statement explained.
The CWC Group specialises in energy and infrastructure, developing knowledge, creating commercial opportunities and strategic solutions for government and industry by offering professional training, conferences and exhibitions
