Thursday, July 4, 2019

Nigerian companies have identified Uganda as the latest frontier market to invest in, and as such, members of the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) will participate in trade partnership discussions at this year’s Uganda International Oil & Gas Summit (UIOGS).

Ranti Omole, Chairman of Radial Circle and Public Secretary of PETAN, leads the delegation of Nigerian companies.

Nigerian companies have taken a strong lead in the number of JV partnerships and service contracts awarded over the last five years of major developments in Uganda. To further this partnership, the Ministry has ensured additional incentive for Nigerian companies to join UIOGS 2019, offering discounted rates to take part in the event’s proceedings

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development and UNOC is calling on all international IOCs, operators, service and technology providers, to convene in Uganda over two days of strategic and technical networking and business development.
