Exciting opportunities await sponsors, exhibitors, delegates at NOGOF 2023

Yenagoa—Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has unveiled plans to host the biggest convergence of major players in the oil and gas industry in the country and beyond in support of Nigerian content.

For its 4th edition, Nigerian Oil and Gas Opportunity Fair (NOGOF) will hold between May 17 and 19, 2023 and exciting offers have been announced for sponsors who take up advert space in the fair’s program just as exhibitors and delegates who register for the opportunity and technical sessions will get full value.

The Opportunity Sessions at NOGOF 2023 bring together industry leaders, innovative companies and investors to explore new business opportunities, forge valuable partnerships and develop long-term relationships.

The sessions have been designed to feature leading companies in the oil and gas industry presenting on the business opportunities available within their organisations and offer an exclusive platform to highlight products, services, and solutions, demonstrate expertise and experience in the industry.

They also help to build brand recognition, increase brand visibility, network with industry leaders, explore new business opportunities, position companies who sign up as leaders supporting local content in the oil and gas industry.

The goal is to create an atmosphere that fosters collaboration, innovation, and growth in the oil and gas industry and participants will have the chance to ask questions, provide feedback, and connect with the presenting companies.

The cost of an advert in the program is N3m for a full page while half page goes for N1 million.

Billed to hold at the NCDMB Conference Hall, Nigerian Content Tower in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State this year, with the theme: “The oil and gas industry- catalyst and fuel for the industrialisation of Nigeria,” the fair first held in 2017 in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

There are also Technical Sessions which dwell on the latest innovations in the Oil and Gas Industry, offering participants the chance to learn from experts, stay up-to-date latest technology and best practices in the industry and network with industry leaders.

Among sponsors who have bought into the NOGOF 2023 vision so far are Caverton, Chevron and Green Energy.

Apart from the avenue to showcase upcoming projects and opportunities in the Nigerian oil and gas industry, network to build relevant capacities among others, NOGOF 2023 will ensure sustainable regional opportunities with members of the African Petroleum Producers Organisation (APPO).

From the resolutions made at the previous successful NOGOF editions, the NCDMB redeemed one of its pledges with the completion of its 17-storey headquarters building commissioned in 2020 and named the Nigerian Content Tower by President Muhammadu Buhari.

NCDMB has since relocated all its staff into the building in Q3 of 2020.
Other actions contained in the previous NOGOF communique already implemented include ascertaining the capacity of fabrication yards in Nigeria, gap closure of special skills such as Certification of Level-3 Non-Destructive Testing Practitioners and setting up of Diploma Program for Marine Quantity Surveyors at the Niger Delta University.

These were done to replenish ageing practitioners and the drought of skilled professionals.

Among expected highlights for the 2023 edition are the local content-driven awards focusing on how projects have been executed by related organisations using criteria for each award category to measure contributions to local content development within the oil & gas sector.

The awards will honour contributions and efforts throughout the industry value chain.
