The 2017 NESH Roundtable was focused on Oil & Gas with the theme: "Peace and Sustainable Development of Nigeria Oil and Gas Producing areas". It was a special session packaged to bring together key and impactful stakeholders to discuss and device a new template for rapid development of the Oil and Gas producing areas that will reinforce and complement existing institutions and roadmaps, through a more robust Private and Public sector Partnership. Experts were present at the event to discuss the subject of mini/modular refineries, which is a key item on the 16 point demand presented to the Federal Government by the Pan Niger Delta Forum as a necessary condition for sustainable peace in the oil and gas producing areas.
Nigerian Entrepreneurs and other stakeholders in the Oil & Gas value-chain were joined by Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, Honorable Minister of state for Petroleum Resources, as the Lead Discussant. Following the Roundtable, there was a Cocktail/Dinner Reception in honour of the Minister.
The Event was held at Grand Hotel, Asaba, Delta State on Friday October 13th, 2017.
