Lagos, Nigeria - CWC Group and NCI announce the launch of Nigeria Oil and Gas Logistics (NOG Logistics) conference and exhibition. Logistic costs account for 4-5% of a typical oil and gas project budget and despite the amount companies spend there is currently no guarantee that their logistics will all come in on time. Recognising these realities, the industry has requested a platform where all stakeholders can meet and agree methods within the current infrastructure to drive down costs and increase efficiencies.
On 6th June the oil and gas stakeholders will meet at the Nigeria Oil and Gas Logistics conference at the Eko Hotel in Lagos, the commercial centre of the Nigerian oil and gas industry. They will have a chance to collaborate and formalise actions to improve oil and gas logistics and guarantee project delivery.
High level representatives from across the oil and gas logistics industry will gather at the NOG Logistics workshops, led by the Advisory Committee of representatives from NAPIMS, Shell, Addax Petroleum, Total, Nigeria LNG, LADOL, Century Ports, Temile and DHL, ensuring that the most crucial issues are covered. The workshops will offer an opportunity for public and private sector stakeholders to share challenges, lessons learnt and formalise achievable solutions, under the Chatham House Rule of no reported press.
Mr Luke Anele, General Manager Materials Management, NAPIMS, will close the discussions by summarising the agreed actions and listing instruments for ensuring successful implementation and realising the true value and impact. Natalie Bacon, Project Manager at the CWC Group, stated that "this is a very exciting time, the logistics industry are making positive steps to sharing resources, boosting offshore security, overcoming bureaucracy and addressing Local Content".
The importance of optimising logistics practices in the industry should not be underestimated; it is a key component to project delivery. To find out more about the conference, please visit www.nog-logistics.com
