NNPC Group MD to court foreign investors at CERA week

The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, is to address foreign investors at the CERAWeek, an international energy conference taking place in Houston, United States.

Expected to speak during a Special Session entitled “Africa: Foundations for New Investment” Dr. Baru will be joined by some African petroleum ministers, heads of National Oil Companies (NOCs) and other global energy industry leaders.

He is expected to discuss the abundant investment opportunities in Nigeria’s Oil and Gas Industry, particularly providing meaningful insights into key investment initiatives as they affect the country’s emerging capital projects within the oil, gas, power and the renewable energy sectors.

In the same vein, Dr. Baru will be among African Oil and Gas industry leaders who will join the US Energy Secretary, Rick Perry, in a private Government-to-Government meeting on trade engagement between the US and African countries.

Organised by IHS Markit, CERA is a global platform on energy trends and public policy where over 4,000 oil and gas experts convene annually to debate the future of oil, natural gas, renewable energy, power and new technologies.

The 2019 edition has the theme: “New World of Rivalries: Reshaping the Energy Future.”

The year’s edition will also explore other big issues confronting the energy industry, hosting such speakers as U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo; OPEC Secretary General, Mohammed Sanusi Barkindo and the Crown Princess of Denmark, Mary Elizabeth among others.
