The event will be headlined by

Sylva; the Director General, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Dr.
Lamido Yuguda; and the Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(NNPC), Mallam Mele Kolo Kyari. It will feature a stellar line-up of global
speakers across the public and private sector who will analyse global
trends and insights that will shape the future of the Nigerian oil & gas
sector, provide recommendations for policy makers, and identify opportunities
for long-term growth and expansion.
the webinar, the Chief Executive Officer, NSE, Mr. Oscar N. Onyema, OON, noted
that, "The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be felt across
diverse industries globally and the oil and gas industry is no exception.
Today, the COVID-19 crisis has accelerated what was already shaping up to be
one of the industry's most transformative moments, the impacts of which will
likely be felt throughout oil's global supply chains and ripple into other
parts of the energy sector. Nonetheless, oil and gas will remain a
multi-trillion-dollar market for decades given its role in supplying affordable
energy. The question of how to create value in the new normal is therefore
fundamental and one that we hope to discuss in this webinar. We envision that
the insights gathered at the forum will lead to actionable solutions that can
chart a more sustainable future for the oil and gas sector."
