Wabote had stated that the fair was to showcase upcoming projects, to give Nigerian service companies ample opportunity to build relevant capacities that might be required to execute the projects in-country, thereby creating employment opportunities, and retaining spend in-country.
Some of the topics that will be discussed at NOGOF 2023 will include upstream opportunities, linkage industry opportunities, gas and downstream opportunities, financing and investment, environmental, social and government (ESG) and sustainable and regional opportunities with members of the African Petroleum Producers Organisation, (APPO).
