Many natural resource-rich countries are diversifying and transforming their economies using the hydrocarbon value chain for wealth creation. This has resulted in an increased interest in the downstream oil and gas sectors, especially the gas, petroleum refining, petrochemical and fertilizer industries, which provide the catalyst that ensures the country’s growth and sustainable development through diversifying the revenue stream and growth in other sectors rather than continuing to depend on costly importation and the resultant drain on foreign exchange earnings.

There are indeed many opportunities for developing countries to harness and maximise the oil and gas value chain, and these opportunities will significantly improve the revenue streams from the downstream sector as well as have multiplier effect on the nation’s economy. For tremendous success in employment generation and wealth creation to be made, more needs to be done in enhancing the enormous opportunities that abound in the oil and gas sector. Likewise, the absence of strong entrepreneurial activities in any Nation makes the country to be perpetually import-dependent with the resultant adverse economic and security consequences.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Need To Develop “Non-Fuel” Downstream Petroleum Sector
2. Opportunities and Challenges for Entrepreneurs on Sustainable Refinery and Petrochemical Products
3. Economic Growth on the Back of the Petrochemical Sector
4. Employment Opportunities Through Our Gas, Petroleum Refining, Petrochemicals And Fertilizer Industries
5. Opportunities And Challenges For Entrepreneurs On Sustainable Gas, Petroleum Refining, Petrochemicals And Fertilizer Products
6. Economic Growth On The Back Of Gas, Petroleum Refining, Petrochemicals And Fertilizer Industrial Sectors
