According to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday 21st of January, 2021, inaugurate the National Oil and Gas Excellence Centre (NOGEC) in Lagos. NOGEC was established to enhance the performance of the country's oil and gas industry, with the aims of ensuring safety and minimizing cost.   
 
Director of DPR, Sarki Auwalu said "The integrated centre will also entrench Nigeria’s status as a regional leader and position the nation for significant global impact in the provision of value-added services and breakthrough solutions for the industry in years and decades to come."
 
Units under the Centre are Search, Rescue and Surveillance (SeRAS); Command and Control Centre and National improved Oil Recovery Centre (NIORC); Oil and Gas Dispute Resolution Centre (DRC); Oil and Gas Competence Development Centre (CDC); and Integrated Data Mining and Analytics Centre (IDMAC).
 
While NIORC is expected to formulate and implement strategies for improved and enhanced oil recovery methods in the industry for the purpose of achieving maximum production at the lowest possible cost; SeRAS is an industry-wide programme established to enhance safety management, emergency preparedness and response, as well as bed space management and logistics services across the industry. 
 
DRC is saddled with offering arbitration, mediation and conciliation services to the industry. It would provide fair and balanced resolutions of industry-related disputes from an informed position.
 
National Oil and Gas Excellence Centre (NOGEC), built by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), will address critical challenges and create a more stable and sustainable business environment.
