As the Centre for Petroleum Information (CPI) attains two decades of creating knowledge value in the oil and gas industry being a hydrocarbon-specific non-profit organization, the presentation of a book titled: Energy Insight NIGERIA forms part of its commemorative events.
The book presentation which is part of activities to mark the platinum milestone of the centre is scheduled to hold on Friday, October 16, 2020.
The book assembles the thoughts of 45 contributors from among the brightest minds in the Nigeria energy industry, Africa’s largest economy. It also gives clear insights into the many timeless industry issues while simultaneously enjoying today’s hindsight and provides a peep into the future of petroleum and the wider energy industry in Nigeria.
According to the editor of the book, Victor Eromosele, former General Manager Finance, Nigeria LNG Limited, and NNPC-NAPIMS, who is currently the Executive Director of the Centre for Petroleum Information (CPI) and secretary to the Board of Governors, “Over the last two decades, CPI has built a large repository of information from its knowledge-sharing activities. Considering that knowledge is nothing unless it is shared, the Board of Governors of the Centre decided to mark its 20th-anniversary milestone with what essentially is “a book of readings.” By so doing, we hope we would have successfully turned a ‘snippet’ from our information repository into “useful knowledge.” He referred to the publication as a book of notable persons in the oil and gas industry.
Commenting on the book, Mele Kyari, Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation said, “I strongly recommend the book to anyone keen on gaining an authoritative insight into several aspects of the Nigerian petroleum and energy industries. Industry executives and related professionals, policymakers, prospective investors, academics interested in the subject and their students; and media practitioners should find the book a worthy reference work.”
The hybrid event will be anchored by Emeka Akabogu, while the guest speaker, Gbenga Oyebode MFR, Board Chairman, Aluko &Oyebode will be discussing the topic “Salvaging the Unrealised Nigerian Vision 2020”; the book review will be done by Dr. SoalaAriweriokuma Author, “Political Economy of Oil and Gas in Africa”, while the book presentation will be done by Dr. ABC Orjiako, Chairman, Seplat Petroleum plc. The event is expected to be graced by other industry leaders.
