THE ABUJA SOLID MINERAL INVESTMENT WORKSHOP AND EXHIBITION 2012.
SOURCING OF SOLID MINERALS AS CHEMICALS FOR NIGERIA’S OIL AND
NISOMWEX 2012, The ABUJA SOLID MINERALS INVESTMENT WORKSHOP AND EXHIBITION
is conceived to encourage more use of local solid mineral extracts as
chemicals in the drilling industry in Nigeria. It will feature seminars,
Powerpoint presentations and Product Exhibitions.
The event is scheduled as follows:
DATE: May 17-18, 2012. VENUE: NICON LUXURY HOTEL,
SEMINAR PAPER PRESENTATIONS:
It will feature seminars on relevant aspects of solid mineral mining
and application of solid minerals like barite as chemicals for drilling
and other oil-field production activities in Nigerian oil and gas sectors.
The Law on Nigerian Content in the Oil and Gas Sectors is geared to
reduce the quantity of imported inputs into oil drilling and related
activities. Nigerian solid minerals are readily available to fill the
gap but the production infrastructures and mechanisms have to be rapidly
upgraded to fill this gap. NISOMWEX 2012 will gather together in one
venue the political actors, the mining and drilling sector stakeholders
and the regulatory and research agencies, public and private, to meet
with equipment makers and vendors from locally and overseas, service
providers from local and overseas locations and all other interested
investors, miners and entrepreneurs to interact at the 2-day event.
Some of the papers now being streamlined for presentation
a. “Mining And Steel Development: The Cradle For Nigeria’s
Industrial Take-Off” by Federal Ministry of Mines and Steel Development.
b. Barite and Bentonite Supply to the Oil and
Gas Industry: The Benefits and Challenges of Local Production"
by the President of Association of Manufacturers and Processers of Barites
c . “Chemical Usage (Including Solid Minerals) In Nigeria’s
Oil And Gas Production Activities” by Federal Ministry of Petroleum
d . “National Content Law and the Empowerment of Nigerians for

Equipment makers for use in mining and oil and gas sectors are invited
to exhibit their wares at this international event. Nigeria is an emerging
economy, with a predominance of petro-dollar in its GNP. The solid minerals
sector is now being fast-tracked for development and investment. Now
is the time for exploratory visits by all foreign operators with an
interest in any of these Nigerian sectors to visit the exhibition. The
event is also a prime opportunity for all operators already on ground
to meet with other public and private sector actors in the sector.

scorecard on Nigerian seaport reforms
It’s ten years since the Obasanjo’s presidency kick-started
the search for better fortunes for Nigeria’s port industry. Once
upon a time, the ports were a haven for wharf rats. No more. Ships then
spent weeks in port to load and discharge. Stevedores were unruly, practicing
the infamous “akube” system, where shipping lines paid for
16-men gangs but get 8 men instead. None could do anything about it
for many years. The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) was then
a glorified gang-up of port industry warlords. Former transport minister,
Chief Ojo Maduekwe, shocked the nation when he exposed bags of money
brought to him at night to soft-pedal the wheels of the reforms which
started rolling during his tenure.
