Nigeria Special Edition: Crisis and Resilience in the Covid-19 Era


The Energy Year is pleased to share our very first special digital report dedicated to Nigeria, under the theme of Crisis and Resilience in the Covid-19 Era. This online edition details the strategies industry stakeholders have put in place to navigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and oil price collapse, adapt to a new normal, keep their facilities and businesses operating and, most importantly, offer maximum protection to employees and collaborators.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has really opened the eyes of all industry stakeholders and we have all been forced to do things differently.” 

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Chief Timipre Marlin Sylva 

While Nigeria adapts to uncertain times, this special report highlights the many milestones the country has achieved throughout these difficult recent months, including the signing of the Train 7 EPC deal for the Bonny Island LNG complex, the historic launch of the country’s marginal fields bid round and the start of the AKK gas pipeline project, among others.

The Energy Year wishes to express its strong support for all of the critical tasks carried out by the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Department of Petroleum Resources and Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, and all other government agencies, to manage a crisis of an unprecedented nature and impact. Through this edition, we salute the initiatives introduced by Nigerian leaders to navigate the new economic landscape and help the country emerge from this period into a sustainable future.

We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to each and every contributor to this special report for their support in showcasing the country’s resilience and helping to build its sustainable energy future.

We trust you will enjoy reading this edition, as well as our soon-to-be-released special digital editions of the Crisis and Resilience in the Covid-19 Era series on Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Qatar and Indonesia. For any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at

Stay safe and well!
