NISOMWEX 2012:
THE ABUJA SOLID MINERAL INVESTMENT WORKSHOP AND EXHIBITION 2012.

THEME: “LOCAL SOURCING OF SOLID MINERALS AS CHEMICALS FOR NIGERIA’S OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY.”


NISOMWEX 2012, The ABUJA SOLID MINERALS INVESTMENT WORKSHOP AND EXHIBITION is conceived to encourage more use of local solid mineral extracts as chemicals in the drilling industry in Nigeria. It will feature seminars, Powerpoint presentations and Product Exhibitions.

The event is scheduled as follows:

DATE: May 17-18, 2012. VENUE: NICON LUXURY HOTEL, Abuja, Nigeria.


Main Features:

SEMINAR PAPER PRESENTATIONS:
It will feature seminars on relevant aspects of solid mineral mining and application of solid minerals like barite as chemicals for drilling and other oil-field production activities in Nigerian oil and gas sectors. The Law on Nigerian Content in the Oil and Gas Sectors is geared to reduce the quantity of imported inputs into oil drilling and related activities. Nigerian solid minerals are readily available to fill the gap but the production infrastructures and mechanisms have to be rapidly upgraded to fill this gap. NISOMWEX 2012 will gather together in one venue the political actors, the mining and drilling sector stakeholders and the regulatory and research agencies, public and private, to meet with equipment makers and vendors from locally and overseas, service providers from local and overseas locations and all other interested investors, miners and entrepreneurs to interact at the 2-day event.

Some of the papers now being streamlined for presentation include:
a. “Mining And Steel Development: The Cradle For Nigeria’s Industrial Take-Off” by Federal Ministry of Mines and Steel Development.
b.
Barite and Bentonite Supply to the Oil and Gas Industry: The Benefits and Challenges of Local Production" by the President of Association of Manufacturers and Processers of Barites in Nigeria.
c . “Chemical Usage (Including Solid Minerals) In Nigeria’s Oil And Gas Production Activities” by Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources.
d . “National Content Law and the Empowerment of Nigerians for import substitution” by the Presidency.
e . “Mineral Availability In Nigeria: The Prospects For Investment” by Nigerian Geological Survey Agency.
f . “Feasible Options To Mechanize Solid Mineral Mining And Processing To Fully Supply Nigeria’s Oil And Gas Sector Needs” by Raw Material Research and Development Council of Nigeria.
g . “Mining Rights And Tenure Of Titles In Nigeria: What Operators Must Know” by the Nigerian Mining Cadastre Office.
h . “Employment and Empowerment of Nigerians via the National Content Law initiatives” by the National Content Monitoring and Development Board.

EXHIBITIONS:
Equipment makers for use in mining and oil and gas sectors are invited to exhibit their wares at this international event. Nigeria is an emerging economy, with a predominance of petro-dollar in its GNP. The solid minerals sector is now being fast-tracked for development and investment. Now is the time for exploratory visits by all foreign operators with an interest in any of these Nigerian sectors to visit the exhibition. The event is also a prime opportunity for all operators already on ground to meet with other public and private sector actors in the sector.

Editorial

The scorecard on Nigerian seaport reforms

It’s ten years since the Obasanjo’s presidency kick-started the search for better fortunes for Nigeria’s port industry. Once upon a time, the ports were a haven for wharf rats. No more. Ships then spent weeks in port to load and discharge. Stevedores were unruly, practicing the infamous “akube” system, where shipping lines paid for 16-men gangs but get 8 men instead. None could do anything about it for many years. The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) was then a glorified gang-up of port industry warlords. Former transport minister, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, shocked the nation when he exposed bags of money brought to him at night to soft-pedal the wheels of the reforms which started rolling during his tenure.
