The Nigerian Energy space is a dynamic one with the booming oil and gas sector, the newly privatized and emerging power sector, and the developing petrochemical and renewable sector. The sector plays a critical role in the industrial, technological, economic and social development of the country. Hence, the large participation and influx of professionals into the field.
