NiHMEC 2022-0859

Collaboration with stakeholders remains a priority for improving hydrocarbon measurement and accounting practices. The prioritization of collaboration with stakeholders plays a crucial role in advancing hydrocarbon measurement and accounting practices. Fostering open communication and partnerships, stakeholders can collectively address challenges, share best practices, and work towards common goals, ultimately enhancing the reliability and integrity of hydrocarbon measurement and accounting in the industry.

NiHMEC has gained the attention and interest of all the stakeholders in Nigeria’s petroleum industry and globally. At NiHMEC 2024, stakeholders in the oil and gas industry expressed their continuous support for NiHMEC and reiterated that the interest in the conference must be sustained. The discussions at NiHMEC 2024 largely emphasized the need to enshrine proper hydrocarbon measurement and accounting processes to minimize value erosion in the industry.

The NiHMEC 2024 event was deemed timely and commendable, as it addressed the challenges posed by crude oil theft losses and aimed to change Nigeria's negative revenue narrative. While there is a need to emphasize the importance of accurate measurements and fiscalization to avoid negative impacts on revenue, crude oil theft and pipeline vandalism have introduced complex complications to hydrocarbon accounting in Nigeria, prompting the need for change in this area.

Training and capacity development for metering professionals should be taken seriously because any investment in capacity development will immediately benefit the operator's bottom line.

Nigeria Hydrocarbon Measurement Conference

Join us in shaping the future of Nigeria's hydrocarbon industry at the Nigeria Hydrocarbon Measurement Conference 2024 (NiHMEC 4) –an international platform for discussing advancements in measurement and accounting. Be a part of the solution by sponsoring and participating in this year's event, scheduled for 8th-10th October 2024 in Lagos. The pre-conference technical workshop is scheduled to be held on October 8th, 2024

NiHMEC is an initiative supported by the government and private sector due to the critical role flow measurement plays in the petroleum industry. The theme for NiHMEC 4 is " Advancing Efficiency in Hydrocarbon Measurement and Accounting".

Network with 488 participants from 31 countries.

NiHMEC 2021 was well attended by 488 participants from 31 countries and Nigeria. The participants' feedback indicated a unanimous clamour for NiHMEC to be an annual event where stakeholders in Nigeria and from around the world would discuss developments in oil and gas measurement and production accounting.

Join shape the future of oil and gas measurement practices in Nigeria.

The discussion at NiHMEC 2022 would shape the future of oil and gas measurement practices in Nigeria regarding petroleum resource management and net-zero carbon emission. With the global drive towards attaining net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, sharing experiences would be critical to navigating the flow measurement challenge in oil and gas field operations.

Take a bird-eye view of emmission mitigation.

The petroleum industry is critical to Nigeria's economic development; the continuous production of the resources is inevitable. However, the production must be done sustainably, as emissions must be mitigated. Effective emission mitigation can only be achieved by ensuring accurate flow measurement along the value chain.

Listen to Stakeholders discuss measurement challenges.

At NiHMEC 2022, stakeholders shall gather to discuss the measurement challenges ahead and what must be done to meet the requirement for accurate hydrocarbon measurement and production accounting. The conference would welcome flow measurement discussions covering the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors of the petroleum industry.
