About NCDMB Essay Competition

The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria after enactment of the Nigerian Content Development Act by the National Assembly in 2010. Functions of the Board include, but not limited to the following:

  • Supervise, coordinate, administer and monitor implementation and development of Nigerian content as specified in the Act in the operations of operators, contractors and all other entities in the Nigerian oil and gas industry
  • Assist local contractors and Nigerian companies to develop their capabilities and capacities to further the attainment of the goal of developing Nigerian content in the Nigerian oil and gas industry
  • Monitor and coordinate the Nigerian content performance of all operators in accordance with the provisions of the Act
  • Conduct studies, researches and investigations that may further the attainment of the goal of developing Nigerian content in the Nigerian oil and gas industry
  • Organize conferences, workshops, seminars, symposia, training, road shows and other public education fora to further the attainment of the goal of developing Nigerian content in the Nigerian oil and gas industry

About The Project

Since 1956 when oil was first discovered in commercial quantity in Oloibiri, an agrarian and fishing community in Bayelsa State, oil has remained the mainstay of the nation’s economy. Decades after, gas production commenced in Nigeria, and has been contributing significantly to the economic growth of the country. Today, the oil and gas industry accounts for about 90% `of the nation’s GDP.

In the capitally intensive and highly skilled oil and gas industry with its numerous opportunities, it is sad to note that Nigerians over the years were not strongly positioned to play significant roles in terms of local content participation. In 2010 however, the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) was established by the Nigerian Government following the signing into law of the Nigerian Content Development Act to increase indigenous participation in the oil and gas industry as well as building local capacity and competencies to boost industry contributions to the growth of Nigeria’s economy.

It is on the basis of the foregoing that the NCDMB Annual Oil & Gas Undergraduate Nigerian Content Essay Competition was conceptualised and developed. The whole idea is intended to promote academic excellence amongst university and polytechnic students in the Niger Delta as well as stimulate their overall understanding of the operational framework of the Nigerian Content Development initiative and the role of the NCDMB in this regard. Also, the project is intended to inspire the students into the future as young entrepreneurs of a new generation equipped with the knowledge and capacity to see and participate in the oil and gas industry and the talent to create value from that opportunity.
