Local Content,Entreprenurship and Vendor Development Course

Local Content is the quantum of composite value added to or created in the Nigerian oil and gas industry through a deliberate utilization of Nigerian human resources, material resources and services. The Local Content Bill was passed into Nigerian Law on the 22nd of April 2010.The schedule of the Act sets out specific work scopes that must be performed in Nigeria with percentages of actuals for compliance. The schedule of the Act lists minimum percentages for the use of local services and materials which promote the use of human and natural resources that are Nigerian.

The Act provides right-of-first-refusal to indigenous companies by stating that there is first consideration for the training and employment of Nigerians. It sets out the criteria to be used by the operator and the contractor in assessing how first consideration is to be given to Nigerians in the process of evaluating bids for goods and services required for projects. This act directly affects operating companies, contractors, sub-contractors and service providers in the oil and gas industries. In addition, the Act also affects, professional services engagements including legal and financial services in the oil and gas sectors of Nigeria.

Local Content is now a very important regulatory aspect of the execution of activities and award of contracts in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
