West Africa Oil and Gas Security Summit to be held in Lagos

April 2014 News

IRN will host the inaugural West Africa Oil & Gas Security 2014 Summit, the latest addition to IRN’s well-established oil and gas security portfolio.

The summit will be held in Lagos, the fastest growing city on the African continent, on 18 & 19 June. Nigeria is oil rich and soon to be the continent’s largest economy, however, the country is beset with security incidents that threaten the stability of the oil industry and communities in the vicinity. Nigeria is thus the ideal setting for this crucial forum.

The meeting will be a discrete platform where delegates can share intelligence with other senior level experts in the oil and gas industry, as well as relevant governmental bodies, on how to cooperate with local communities, deflect bribery demands, improve information sharing between neighbouring states, secure ports and offshore assets, develop defence plans for vessels transiting through high risk areas, select the most advanced security systems, and prevent pipeline sabotage.

There will be a number of high profile security case studies, panel discussions, and presentations concentrated on the threat posed by expanding terrorism and extremism, oil theft, offshore infrastructure attack and piracy prevention.

Attendees will also benefit from a number of networking opportunities including the Private Gala Dinner and Brandy & Cigar Networking, to allow them to forge valuable business relationships in a relaxed and informal fashion.
