I will keynote the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE) conference next month in Lagos. NAPE is the largest professional association of petroleum geologists and related disciplines in Nigeria and Africa. Members include geologists, geophysicists, CEOs, managers, consultants, students and academicians..
I will speak on a topic I have titled The Explorationists: Abundance in Data.
As an undergraduate student in FUTO, I did two internships in the oil sector – all in NNPC’s Nigerian Gas Company (Owasa Gas Station, NGC HQ). During the 3rd internship, I served in Shell’s Kolo Creek flow station (near Yenagoa). The first night in the station was memorable because I poured vinegar like water as I worked hard to eat everything on the table (those days!).
The industry has changed since those days. We will be having a conversation during NAPE.
