A total of 100 delegates, representing 56 companies from Nigeria and the United Kingdom, explored opportunities for collaboration at the annual Nigeria-UK Supplier Engagement Programme organised by Shell Nigeria Exploration Company Ltd (SNEPCo) in conjunction with the United Kingdom Trade and Investment (UKTI). The event, which held in Lagos on the 30th of July, brought together companies engaged in a wide variety of activities in the oil and gas industry, including engineering, maintenance, fabrication and subsea support services. The UK delegation, which included Nigerian experts in the diaspora, who SNEPCo had reached in previous business summits in Aberdeen and London, first met with Shell Companies in Nigeria on areas of need and technical gaps. Osagie Okunbor, Chairman, Shell Companies in Nigeria and Managing Director of the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC) observed: “The striking feature of this year’s business summit is the presence of Nigerians in the diaspora in the UK delegation. It shows that our engagements with Nigerians to take up opportunities back home in the oil and gas industry, is being well received, and this is good news for everybody.” The UK delegation also held networking meetings with their Nigerian counterparts. These included several members of the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN).   Source:
