Africa Energy Series Nigeria 2019 will be a comprehensive report on one of Africa’s most developed and complex oil and gas industries and will provide a complete overview of the main opportunities and projects in Nigeria’s upstream, downstream, midstream and power sectors. Nigeria’s oil and gas sector is facing many changes — including regulatory overhauls and a new drive to monetize gas and end flaring — and is also flush with opportunities from the rebounding oil sector and a rapidly-growing domestic sector. Africa Energy Series will explore these issues in detail, and will be the most definitive resource on Nigeria’s oil and gas sector produced yet.
The latest AES film deals exclusively with Nigeria’s gas-to-power initiatives. From indigenous producers of gas in the Niger Delta to government reformers, financiers and independent power project operators, Nigeria’s energy sector is undergoing a pivot towards gas. The utilization of this national resource heralds a new period of industrialization if projects can be brought on-stream and tariffs made attractive enough for gas and power producers and users. The documentary includes interviews with private sector executives; plus analysts and experts from Nigeria, the US, South Africa and the UK; and feature interviews with the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Dr. Emmanuel Kachikwu and the Minister of Power Babatunde Fashola. It aims to provide a full picture of how gas-topower policy and projects will impact Nigeria’s future prosperity, and which companies are emerging as the main actors. The film will be aired on CNBC Africa.
The film is launching in the fourth quarter of 2018.
