Exploring Opportunities for Female Entrepreneurs in the Oil and Gas Sector – Now is the Time!

(Once again the global oil and gas industry is scaling back its workforce as a way of coping with the dramatic collapses in the prices of oil and gas. But there’s usually a silver lining to these events. Contrary to what many believe, there are many lucrative businesses in Nigeria’s oil and gas sector that can be floated with relatively small amount of money for the upward-looking entrepreneur with a determination to create wealth.)
