Nigeria

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 later this year.
