Sweetcrude is a review of the Nigerian energy industry. The publication has evolved to become the voice and watchdog of industry, reporting all spectra of the energy chain in-country and serving as an interface between the Nigerian energy industry and that of Europe, the Middle-East and the American continent.
Each edition of Sweetcrude is available online: www.sweetcrudereports.com in 3D for one whole month and it is also distributed free at major international conferences and seminars. For the price of an advertisement in the print publication, you enjoy one month free publicity online.
Sweetcrude affords foreign based business enterprises inhibited by logistics consideration, a platform to showcase their goods and services to the Nigerian energy industry.
Sweetcrude provides guidance for foreign businesses seeking to participate actively in bidding for projects on Nipex, Nigeria Petroleum Exchange (a virtual bidding platform) in the Nigerian oil and gas industry. Sweetcrude also provides advisory on the restive Niger Delta, where an amnesty initiative put in place by government, has restored some appreciable level of normalcy and Nigeria’s crude oil production to 2.6 million barrels per day.
Sweetcrude is the only nationally circulated energy publication in Nigeria.
