THEME: Stimulating Exploration and Reserves Growth in a Maturing Basin
DATE: 10-14 November 2013
The Nigerian oil and gas industry has witnessed the largest number of divestment and acquisition activities, bringing new players to a risky business of oil and gas exploration and production. With assets changing hands, it is hoped that farmees will be able to drive a new wave of exploration activities in the Niger Delta. It is against this backdrop of events that NAPE decided on this year’s theme “Stimulating exploration and reserves growth in a maturing basin”.
The conference took place at the Eko Hotel and Conference Centre, Lagos from 10th-14th November, 2013. This was the first NAPE conference to be organized by a female president-elect of the association.

The opening ceremony, technical sessions, workshops and other events were well attended. OPEC was at the event, represented by Dr. Taher Najah. (more…)
