PIA To Unlock Investments In Nigeria’s Oil And Gas Sector – Sylva

The Minister of State Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, has said that the desire to surmount the challenges bedeviling the oil and gas sector led to the enactment of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA),IgbereTV reports 

Speaking at the Nigeria International Economic Partnership Forum, in New York, on Wednesday, with the theme: “Nigeria’s Oil and Gas Sector: Reforms, Results and the Road Ahead”, Sylva said the desire of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to inject life into the sector hitherto characterized by fiscal and operational challenges led to making proactive reforms in the sector a priority.

The minister said the enactment of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) on August 16, 2022 was a “watershed moment for the nation, the industry and all stakeholders alike, signaling the beginning of a more conducive environment for investment, output, industrial and national growth, while also addressing legitimate grievances of resource host-communities most impacted by resource extraction operations”.
