The Global Oil and Gas Industry continues to reel from the recent collapse in crude prices. In spite of the ongoing consensus on output cuts by major oil producing nations and the rebound from April’s trough, the underlying risk drivers still persists.
The COVID-19 crisis appears to have accelerated what was already shaping up to be one of the industry’s most transformative moments, the impacts of which will likely be felt throughout oil’s global supply chains and ripple into other parts of the energy sector.
On the local scene, a few developments have resulted from the pandemic and price shock; with the downward adjustment in the exchange rate and the recent deregulation of the downstream Oil & Gas industry, the sector is being presented with mix of opportunities and various challenges.
As part of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) advocacy initiatives, and given the strategic importance of the sector, The NSE is hosting a Webinar focused on the Oil & Gas Sector and aimed at bringing together key players across the entire oil and gas value chain to discuss amongst other issues, the impact of COVID-19 on the sector, Government policies, recent deregulation, key challenges, funding dynamics and potential shifts to expect in reaction to global trends.
