Nigeria Annual International Conference & Exhibition
NAICE which is the acronym for Nigeria
Annual International Conference and Exhibition is organized on behalf of
the SPE Sections in Nigeria by the Nigeria Council.
Over the years NAICE has grown to become the largest upstream Oil and Gas event
in Africa. It holds annually in Nigeria and attracts industry practitioners at
all levels, as well as key stakeholders. It has continuously served as one of
the industry's opportunity to learn, debate and challenge ideas to chart the
right course towards a sustainable future for the industry. 36 editions so far!
Traditionally, NAICE holds on rotational basis at major cities in the SPE
Sections in Nigeria, however, for about 11 years (2000-2009 and 2011) it held
in Abuja the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria.
In 2010 we held a historic edition in the ancient city of Calabar and the
recent edition held in Lagos. The choice of major cities and particularly
Abuja, was primarily aimed at encouraging greater government participation and
to also leverage on government and industry leaders' presence to influence the
direction of policies. Key National Policies Initiated by the Society of
Petroleum Engineers through its NAICE and Annual Workshops include: Nigeria
Content Development Policy Gas flare Reduction Policy National Policy on
Reserves Definition, Calculation and Classification, and Currently, the society
is collaborating with the Nigerian Society of Engineers to create Local
Standards and Codes that will guide the Petroleum Engineering Practice in
