Dear Esteemed Members
The last few months have been most challenging and unprecedentedly frustrating for our industry. It was Martin Luther King who said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.’’ Permit me to take a cue from MLK and make bold to state that, “The ultimate measure of an association as ours should not be where we were in moments of comfort (oil boom), but how we fare at times of uncertainties and our collective ability to sustain our lofty drive to find more oil and gas as well as deliver on commitment to our members, despite the challenges we face.’’ It is this zeal that has largely informed some actions we have taken over the last few months as we cannot afford to dwell on remembered glory.
A few weeks ago, the Nigerian government formally acknowledged that the nation is now in a recession and this reality has elicited various positions and schools of thought within the polity on the fate of our economy. Foremost investor, businessman, author and financial commentator, Jim Rogers once opined that, ‘Economies – Just like humans who must breathe in and out – must cycle between periods of Growth and Recession’. We seek to defy this natural cycle but without recession there will be no growth and vice versa. I am inclined to agree with him. I am also persuaded to agree with Bo Bennett, entrepreneur, author and philosopher who said, ‘as sure as the spring will follow the winter, prosperity and economic growth will follow recession’.
Some of the innovative survival initiatives embarked upon by many of our corporate members, coupled with policies recently introduced by government are strong indications that we are positioning our industry to thrive beyond the storm as we remain resolute and refuse to be wrestled and pinned down by that ‘naughty’ word called recession.
As an association, our skills, attributes and professional acumen remain the values that differentiate us. The industry needs NAPE. The nation looks up to us. . Our country’s economy is remarkably influenced by our ability to find more oil and gas. Therefore we have to dig deeper in our strides to steer the nation back on the path of recovery.
Association Membership, relevance and Integrity remain our chief cornerstone. We have no illusions about the challenges that confront us, but we remain optimistic that they are not insurmountable.
In our quest to sustain our pedigree as a leading voice in advocacy within the Nigerian oil and gas industry, we embarked on two key initiatives this year:
• Informal Evening Executive-Level Industry Interactive Forums with NNPC and DPR top management
• Consultative engagement with the National Institute of Legislative studies (policy generating arm of the National assembly).
In our continuous drive towards becoming a more robust association, we instituted some membership benefits, upgraded our infrastructure and are expanding our reach by the following initiatives:
• Medicare (HMO) program: effectively kicked off with enrolment of about 130 members at inception. Details of the program available on :
• Establishment of Uyo and UK/Europe NAPE Chapters in the next couple of weeks.
• Formalization of a partnership with EAGE in the quest to expand our global collaborative engagement.
• Upgrade of our IT infrastructure with our web and bulletin platform streamlined for more effectiveness.
• Effective revamping of NAPE Foundation dues as part of our commitment to sustainable fundraising.
• Introduction of a 25year membership PIN award and milestones recognition for active sustained voluntary service to the association.
• A joint mini student conference with the Nigerian Mining and Geosciences Society towards effective collaboration in our academic community
In many of my travels and engagements I have been awestruck by the esteem in which our association is held. We have been steadfast in our drive to sustain the leadership role of our great association in such a fashion that we are recognized as the beacon of knowledge and professionalism in the earth sciences locally and internationally. You should rightly be proud to be a part of this great association.
NAPE Convention, November 13-17, 2016 @ Eko Convention Center
Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Theme for our flagship annual conference for 2016 is, “The Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry, Tackling Our Realities”. This years’ Pre-Conference workshop will focus on Stimulating Investment Opportunities for Nigerian Frontier Basins and will feature several speakers of high repute. Our All Convention Luncheon will feature Mr. Bill Coates, President Schlumberger, Europe and Africa who will deliver the keynote address titled, “Sub $50/bbl Oil: Opportunities in the Market Place”. I am encouraged by the commitment, energy and zeal demonstrated by the Conference Planning Committee and I have no doubt their endeavor will yield great results. The golf tournament returns this year (November 4-6, 2016) at the Ibom Golf Course which remains the best golf resort in sub Saharan Africa.
Finally, the decline in crude prices is a cyclical phenomenon and action must be taken if the end of this cycle of gloom is not to find us unprepared for the next phase of boom. A lot of efforts are ongoing by this association, corporate members and the government and all members must be partners in this interest. In spite of the pessimism and alarm that pervades the land……I see a ray of hope in the horizon and continue to believe the ray will become full beam soon.
I wish you a Happy 56th Nigeria Independence day celebration.
