The Petroleum Technology Development Fund, PTDF, is planning to widen scope of stakeholders' involvement in its activities, in a new policy direction. In a statement by its Executive Secretary, Dr. Bello Aliyu Gusau, the Fund indicated that industry players will be fully involved in the new policy direction through creation of linkages with Nigeria and global oil and gas industry.
The statement reads: "PTDF is marginally connected to the oil and gas industry players. There is an obvious lack of organic relationship between PTDF and the industry because we have not created the necessary linkages with other players.
"There is therefore need for us to reassert our relevance in the oil and gas industry by engaging in a very practical manner with the industry. We have to move near the center stage of the oil and gas industry by becoming increasingly involved.
