The African Energy Chamber (AEC) is proud to announce that the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorers (NAPE) has become an official partner of the African Energy Week (AEW) conference and exhibition (AECWeek.com), the premier event in Africa for the oil and gas sector that will take place from October 18 to 21, 2022, in Cape Town. Representing the largest professional association of petroleum geologists, geophysicists, CEOs, consultants and academics in Nigeria, one of Africa’s largest hydrocarbon producers, having NAPE as an official partner of the continent’s largest energy event is critical to shaping to discussions on current trends and challenges.
and opportunities in the upstream oil and gas sector both in Nigeria and on the continent.
Since its establishment in 1975, NAPE has played a critical role in fostering interaction between Nigerian, African and international oil and gas professionals, promoting the growth of the industry by sharing and encouraging the adoption of best practices, business models and standards.
With Nigeria looking to increase oil and gas production to address national energy security issues while pushing for the monetization of hydrocarbons to boost GDP and economic growth, organizations like NAPE are critical in driving local content development and ensuring an innovative and state-of-the-art workflow.
solutions are implemented to optimize operations throughout the African exploration and production sector.
In this regard, with goals to increase Nigeria’s proven gas reserves from 200 trillion cubic feet (tcf) to 600 tcf for domestic use and export, as the energy transition intensifies and the global gas market expands, Organizations like NAPE will be key, even training the national workforce and creating a competitive market in the country.
At AEW 2022, NAPE representatives will participate in high-level meetings and panel discussions to shape dialogue on how African countries can accelerate hydrocarbon exploration and production, thereby increasing socio-economic development and drawing more than 600 million people across the continent out of energy poverty.
Additionally, with global policies related to the energy transition hampering the flow of investments needed to optimize oil and gas exploration, NAPE representatives are well positioned to drive AEW 2022 discussions on best practices and technologies for Africa.
attract investment and maximize the development of hydrocarbons.
while remaining a climate champion.
“The Chamber is honored to partner with NAPE for AEW 2022.
With the partnership, conversations during the event will focus on exploration and production, with insights into how African countries can enhance capability development and skills transfer.
We believe that drilling more oil and gas wells is key to ending energy poverty in Africa and having modern geosciences and practices is vital to address the challenges and drive development.
This same narrative will be pushed forward at AEW 2022 with the help of NAPE,” said NJ Ayuk, CEO of AEC.
Under the theme “Exploring and Investing in Africa’s Energy Future While Driving an Enabling Environment,” AEW 2022 will host NAPE representatives in various forums and keynote sessions on how Africa can modernize its oil and gas workforce while ensuring gender diversity and inclusion.
As an official partner of AEW 2022, NAPE will shape powerful discussions around developing local content in the African oil and gas sector, as well as effective technical approaches to address industry challenges.
