PETAN has been promoting the development of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria through the organization and participation of Nigerian Entrepreneurs in conferences, seminars, workshops, and creating opportunities for Nigerian companies to project themselves in the competitive industry.
Since 2005, PETAN has been solely responsible for organizing the Nigerian Pavilion and the exhibition of Nigerian companies at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), which holds in Houston, Texas every year.
Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) is an association of Nigerian Indigenous Technical Oilfield service companies in the upstream and downstream sectors of the Oil industry. The association was formed to bring together Nigerian Oil & Gas entrepreneurs to create a forum for the exchange of ideas with the major operators and policy makers.
We are initiators of Local content in Nigeria and have been championing the quest for increased local participation in the Nigerian oil and Gas industry.
We have been giving opportunities to Nigerian companies to showcase themselves in international conferences and exhibitions such as the OTC, GPS, etc.
PETAN, companies and their contractors employ over 20000 Nigerians of which over 60 % are Graduates. This has a beneficial “domino” effect on the economy
