The Special Adviser to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Energy, Mrs Olu Verheijen, is currently addressing a press conference to discuss the Executive Orders signed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

This is inline with the Federal Government executive orders signed by President Tinubu on OIL AND GAS REFORMS few days ago as 9News Nigeria reports.

Recall that in keeping with Tinubu’s dedicated efforts to remove obstacles to investments in Nigeria, harness the nation’s resources and diversify the economy for the benefit of all Nigerians, the Federal Government has executed Policy Directives to improve the investment climate and position Nigeria as the preferred investment destination for the oil and gas sector in Africa as gathered by 9News Nigeria.

Following extensive engagements, analyses, and benchmarking with other jurisdictions, the President has initiated the amendment of primary legislation to introduce fiscal incentives for oil & gas projects, reduce contracting costs and timelines, and promote cost efficiency in local content requirements. Recognizing the urgency to accelerate investments, the President has directed as follows:

(1) ⁠Introduction of fiscal incentives for non-associated gas, midstream and deepwater developments.

(2) ⁠Streamlining of contracting process to compress the contracting cycle to six months.

(3) ⁠The application of the local content requirements without hindering investments or the cost competitiveness.
