What we call “Energy & Natural Resources”
The Energy & Natural Resources encompasses the whole array of the extractive process of natural resources as well as the processing, transportation and trade
In today’s volatile energy markets, it is a fact that sources of risk and uncertainty will continue to impact market perceptions and investment decisions. This uncertainty both threatens the competitiveness of energy assets and new asset development and is also a potential source of value. Renewable and low carbon mandates are playing an increasingly significant role in power markets.The energy market in Nigeria had enjoyed concerted government efforts and visible presence in the form of policies/programmes/interventions simply stated here as government efforts along the value-chain of the industry from upstream down to retail. Some of these efforts were structural changes, regulatory reforms, capacity expansion and institutional restructuring, all aimed at increasing energy supply.
Asides Oil and Gas, Nigeria is also endowed with vast reserves of solid minerals, including, but not limited to, precious and base minerals, industrial minerals, energy minerals and metals. The country was a major exporter of tin, columbite and coal in the 1960s to early 1970s. However, activities in this sector began to nose-dive considerably by the mid-1970s due to a number of political and economic factors, especially the significant focus on crude oil production as a major source of foreign exchange for the country.
By the first half of 2016, Nigeria entered into a period of economic recession, which continued in the third quarter of the year. The recession was primarily due to dwindling Government revenues; caused by the twin problems of severely impaired local crude-oil production, and low global oil prices. As part of the economic recovery plan, the Government prioritized the diversification of the country’s revenue base as paramount, and identified agriculture and mining as the pivotal sectors.
