CHAIRMAN’S SPEECH SPEECH from the desk of the CHAIRMAN The Society of Petroleum Engineers SPE in Nigeria has maintained its lead in providing rallying point for professionals and captains of industry within the Oil & Gas , both locally and globally. The SPE Nigeria Council in keeping its focus on professionalism chose the overarching theme for the 2015 year to be: Building Blocks For Long-Term Sustainability. The main focus of NAICE2015 is on Sustainability, Infrastructure and Framework in emerging economy for their natural gas development and exploitation. EMEKA ENE Other events and activities marked the 2014-2015 SPE Nigeria Council year. One of them was the Oloibiri Lecture Series & Energy Forum OLEF2015. The workshop discussed a very pertinent issue relating to pressing oil price fall. The Topic: Global Oil Price Dynamics: Impact and Strategic Solution for Nigeria was thoroughly discussed. OLEF2015 provided a forum where captains of industries proffered solutions to the downward trends of global oil price in Nigeria. Several courtesy visits to industries and government agencies were met with warm embrace with more promising interest in SPE future events and activities. One of such kind gestures was the collaboration with Petroleum Training Institute Effurun in organizing drilling simulation training for engineers. On behalf of the Society of Petroleum Engineers Nigeria Council, I would like to say thank you to all our sponsors, exhibitors, members and delegates at this year's NAICE. SPE remains committed to serving you better and we invite you to join us in that journey. Thank You. Emeka Ene Chairman, SPE Nigeria Council. NAICE 2015 SPECIAL EDITION AUGUST 2015 DIGEST 05

AESNTHEMRAGIA LIMITED Partnership with Our Communities OUR SOCIAL INVESTMENT (Report 2009- 2015) Energia Limited is the Joint Venture Operator of the Ebendo/Obodeti Marginal Field (exObodugwa/Obodeti Marginal eld) located in Ebendo near Kwale, Ndokwa West LGA, Delta State in partnership with Oando Production and Development Company (OPDC) in a 55%/45% working interest in favour of Energia Limited. The company is a wholly owned Indigenous Exploration & Production (E&P) company with strong association with leading Oil and Gas service and technology providers in the country. It was therefore set up to promote the Local Content vision and drive in Nigeria in the immediate and near future. effort, which was first of its kind in the country was done without any safety incident despite the very compacted built up environment with Kwale. We generated the needed cash that bolstered our drive to secure a drilling rig for the development drilling. We also constructed our 8.5 km, 6 inch export line from Ebendo field to Umusadege Injection Hub operated by another marginal field, Midwestern Oil and Gas, for export to Agip's Brass Terminal. In collaboration with the indigenous service and technology associates, Energia as Operators brought in Ebendo eld to rst oil production in 2009 with an initial production capacity of 1800bopd from one (1) Well. Presently, Energia has developed the Ebendo/Obodeti fields to its present production capacity of 9000 bopd with the successful drilling and completion of four (4) new Wells. Plan is to fully develop the asset to achieve some 15,000 bopd by 2016/2017 Provision of pipe-borne water One remarkable feat achieved by Energia was to secure DPR permit to truck its crude oil for about 8 months to be able to raise needed cash for further field development projects.
