The 7th Upstream & Downstream Exhibition and Conference with the theme “Nigerian Content with Technological Advancement” will run this year from 30-31 August, 2017 at the NICON LUXURY Hotel, Area 10, Abuja, Nigeria. The event features  Exhibition, Conference, Networking and Industry Awards which is attended yearly by hundreds of senior level delegates from Government, Regulatory bodies, International Oil and Gas Companies and other Industry Stakeholders.

This year, key players in the hydrocarbon industry will be assessing the Nigerian Content Act 2010 aimed at opening up the oil & gas sector to international and indigenous operators. The Act was introduced to consolidate the objective of increasing Local Content participation in the country’s oil and gas industry. This legislation ensures that, the indigenous companies are given greater responsibility in the development of the industry through a government target which allows for a compulsory 70% implementation of indigenous labour, materials and resources in all oil and gas projects in Nigeria.

The conference segment will also discuss a wide range of industry activities, cutting across offshore, onshore and midstream operational activities. In addition, in response to the increasing popularity of our Industry Excellence Awards, this year's event will recognise industry players in 10 Categories.

This Annual trade show, now running for the seventh year is endorsed by Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC,  Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF), National Petroleum Investment Management Services (NAPIMS), Addax Petroleum Nigeria Limited, Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) and is fully supported by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB).

The Upstream and Downstream Exhibition and Conference, no doubt, stands out as the most successful indigenous oil and gas event in the region. We therefore look forward to welcoming all participants to Abuja for the 2017 edition in August.
