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 Nigeria.
