LAGOS—THE Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, Ministry of Petroleum Resources, and others have concluded plans to present three vital documents, targeted at guiding operations in Lagos.
The documents are to be presented at the 18th edition of the International HSE Biennial Conference and Exhibition on the Oil and Gas Industry in Nigeria at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos from November 26 – 28, 2018.
Addressing the newsmen in Lagos, yesterday, the chairman of the Planning Committee, Dr. Musa Zagi, who is also a Deputy Director in DPR said the three documents would drive effective operations in Nigeria’s oil and gas industry.
Dr. Musa Zagi, who disclosed the theme of the event as: ‘Driving Sustainability in the Oil and Gas Industry through Improved Stakeholders’ Environmental Stewardship, said: “Bearing in mind that the oil and gas industry is global, it is expected that the various speakers and authors who have been drawn from all spheres of discipline will bring to fore their wealth of experience (local and international) as it relates to Environment.
“During the three-day event it is planned that 4 plenary sessions will be held with various discussants who have been chosen from the industry based on their wealth of experience while 36 technical papers will also be delivered during the technical sessions by authors who have also been chosen by the Conference Planning Committee, CPC.”
“We expect that the knowledge derived from the plenary and technical sessions would help provide further insight and approaches for addressing environmental concerns as well as increase awareness on practical global safety and environmental issues and innovations that would be beneficial to the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry.”
