They run the best technical conferences in Africa. I mean the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is amazing. In one which I attended a few years ago, they started without waiting for a minister who was arriving about 20 minutes late. I could not believe that I was in Nigeria. Simply, the oil & gas industry delivers global standards, across core domains, as the high priests of Nigeria’s economy.
Good People, I want to invite you to SPE Young Professionals Symposium. I will do the keynote for this year, and my topic is “Harnessing Nigeria’s Mix – Opportunities for Young Professionals”. Many years ago, as an intern, I worked in Owaza ( Abia state) in Nigerian Gas Company (NNPC) working on the gas flow station supplying gas to Aba Ceramics, etc.
I later moved to Moscow Rd Port Harcourt in NNPC, learning on gas installations in Benin. Later, while in Shell on internship, I lived in Kolo Creek flow station (Bayelsa), piping hydrocarbons with extremely nice world-class engineers in Shell. Then, I took a boat from Ogoni to Ikot Abasi for the gas projects in ALSCON. In those, two things were evident: carbon and hydrogen.
But today, things are changing and the industry is being redesigned. Besides those hydrocarbons, we now have new domains. What are the opportunities for young people? Interestingly, there are many. During my talk, I will share because the future looks promising.
Please go here and register and join the young SPE members. They are extremely brilliant young people and great young people to connect with: https://2021-spe-ph-yp-symposium.netlify.app/---
