Delivered by HE Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, OPEC Secretary General, at the Nigeria Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition, 3 July 2018, Abuja, Nigeria.
Excellencies, distinguished delegates, ladies and gentlemen,
It is my absolute privilege to address the Nigeria Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition, which is in its seventeenth year. This is actually my first engagement outside of Austria since one of the busiest weeks in the history of OPEC, which included meetings, conferences and the 7th International OPEC Seminar. This makes it even nicer to return back to our magnificent home country!
I must confess, it does feel somewhat bitter-sweet to participate this year. Sadly, 2018 marked the passing of one of the fathers of this conference- Dr. Alirio Parra.
