About the Host
The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) was established by the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Act which came into effect on April 22, 2010.
The NOGIC JQS was created in line with section 55 of the NOGIC Act which states that the Board shall establish, maintain and operate a joint qualification system (JQS) in consultation with industry stakeholders which shall be administered in accordance with provisions set out in the regulations to be made by the Minister in accordance with the provisions of this Act.
Since the inception of NCDMB, the board has been committed to promoting and building local capabilities in the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry. The enforcement of local content implementation in the oil and gas industry has also led to some key achievements of the board. Recently, Engr. Simbi Kesiye Wabote the executive secretary was recognized globally for his advocacy for local content and commended by the Nigerian senate on his development of the NCDMB headquarters building.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between NCDMB and the bank of Industry (BOI) on the implementation of Nigerian Content Intervention Fund (NCIF) is a very important milestone in the history of the country. It aims to address the persistent funding challenge that is encountered by local service providers and other indigenous players in the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry. The floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) is the first of its kind in this country.
Nigerian Oil and Gas Opportunity Fair is another milestone achieved by the board. It is uncommon to find major players in the oil and gas industry and beyond gathered in the same room in support of Nigerian Content.
