London (PRWEB UK) 19 May 2015 — The Director of Development of the Nigeria Defence Headquarters from the Nigerian Ministry of Defence will give the Welcome Address at the 2nd West Africa Oil & Gas Security Summit, taking place next month at the Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos, Nigeria, on 10-11th June.
Oil production in Nigeria accounts for 70% of the economy, but the natural resource is much less profitable than it once was because of widespread corruption and vandalism. The fight against terrorism, piracy and pipeline vandalism, as well as risk mitigation and asset integrity within the oil and gas industry will be the core focus of the senior level Summit.
High level speakers from Chevron, Sea Petroleum & Gas, Addax, Oando, Subsea7, the Nigerian Navy, and many more, combined with an intensively researched content, will provide the industry leaders in attendance with a comprehensive knowledge of the current oil and gas security situation in West Africa and the solutions to face the challenges of the industry.
The aim of the two-day Summit is to enable Security Heads in the region to forge new valuable business relations for the long-term resolution of current problems. Two panel discussions, several networking breaks, a Gala Dinner and a Brandy & Cigar Reception will allow delegates to discuss and assess the solutions that have proven to be successful and could benefit their business in the near future.
The Summit’s official Sponsors are the pipeline protection company; Atmos International; maritime security experts, Ocean Marine Security; security engineering provider, Kontz Engineering; canine oil detection services, K2 Solutions; and bulletproof wears supplier, Forts and Shields.
The forum is also supported by the Information Security Forum and the Africa Gas Association.
