2020 conference synopsis
The Fuel of the Future Summit is a premier convening of thought leaders, operators, regulators and stakeholders along the oil and gas industry value chain. This Summit aims to bridge the gap between the regulatory issues facing operators in the oil and gas sector and policy-makers. It provides a unique platform for debate around the prevailing challenges confronting the oil and gas sector and the emerging opportunities therein. Conversations at the summit will build on the impactful deliberations at the 2019 Oil & Gas Roundtable organised by the trio of BusinessDay, Nigeria Natural Resource Charter (NNRC) and the Nigerian Gas Association (NGA), with the theme “Powering Economic Growth through Diversification”.

Nigeria is deemed to have more potential in gas than oil, with over 202 trillion cubic feet in proven gas reserves. With the current global move towards clean energy, it is no gainsaying that the future of the country, particularly its aspirations for industrialisation, socio-economic development and sustainable power generation may largely depend on harnessing this gas potential.

However, despite the opportunities along the entire upstream, midstream and downstream value chain of the energy
sector, gas development in the country today stands at just about 25% of the proven reserves. Issues such as overregulation, pricing, failure of contracts and uncertainty in the political and economic landscape of Nigeria, have been identified by stakeholders as key factors which militate against domestic gas utilisation for economic growth.

Gas, cleaner than oil, rewarding investors, is emerging the Fuel of the Future; in the past decade natural gas has accounted for 45 percent of increase in energy consumption. Due to population growth coupled with rapid urbanization, gas-fired electric power grew demand for natural gas by 4.6 percent in 2018. Gas-based businesses in exploration, infrastructure, and transport, serving domestic and industrial users can power small businesses, generate jobs and trigger economic growth, thus complementing government policies to cushion the effect of removing petrol subsidy.

Much is however lost to the Nigerian economy from the lack of gas to power businesses due to investment shortfalls, suffocating regulation and uncompetitive domestic prices – at least 75 percent of Nigeria’s power is sourced from gas, and cheap prices keep the plants running, but leave its operators cash-strapped since tariffs do not guarantee commercial return.

Why the Fuel of The Future Summit

The Fuel of the Future Conference aims to convene policy makers and industry operators, to engage in useful dialogue aimed at positioning the oil & gas sector for increased economic impact in the coming decade. 

The timing of the Summit and the consequent activities it will engender is particularly auspicious in view of the series of efforts by the Ministry of Petroleum Resources to promote a vision of a gas – based economic future for Nigeria including the declaration of the Year 2020 as Nigeria’s Year of Gas and the recent inauguration of a National Gas Committee by the Honourable Minister of State. The commitment to this vision apparently culminated in the Final Investment Decision taken on the NLNG Train-7 in December 2019.

Activities at combating gas flaring through the Nigeria Gas Flare Commercialisation Programme and other actions to ramp electricity production in Nigeria as oil majors discover more gas, as well as the recent launch of the Nigerian Gas Transportation Network Code are also in alignment with this vision.

The conference will:

  • Assess how the implementation of the policy actions contained in the 2017 National Gas Policy can be accelerated 
  • Identify emerging opportunities in the gas value chain  
  • Identify necessary regulatory tools and actions required to stimulate investment 
  • Explore how stakeholders can leverage the emerging opportunities to build the infrastructure commensurate with the ambitions and consumption demands of sub-Saharan Africa’s largest economy
  • Review funding sources and project financing models that may be useful for injectment in gas projects
  • Highlight lessons from local and international success stories e.g. how to attract investment, insulating investments from political cycles
