The Aiteo Group, a global-focused Nigeria-based energy conglomerate, has been named the Indigenous Oil and Gas Company of the Year at the Nigerian Oil and Gas (NOG) Awards, Nigeria’s most prestigious annual oil and gas industry event

The NOG is a viable platform for networking, sharing ideas, and exploring new opportunities and innovations in the industry.

The event, which draws key players across the Nigerian Energy sector, was held this July in Abuja and organised by London-based CWC Group and is now in its 18th edition. This year, hundreds of industry professionals were gathered from both the public and private sectors.

Dignitaries at the conference included the Secretary-General of OPEC; Dr Sanusi Barkindo, Nigeria’s Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources; Dr Ibe Kachikwu, Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr Maikantu Baru, and Chief Executives of major oil and gas companies operating in Nigeria.

Responding to the award, Aiteo’s CEO and Executive Vice Chairman, Benedict Peters, attributed the company’s emergence as the indigenous oil and gas company of the year to the depth of its human resources, and sustainable investments in the industry, and the Nigerian economy.

“We remain committed to our vision of shaping the future of sustainable energy in Nigeria and beyond, strategically deploying resources and technologies that lead to sustained economic development and value for all stakeholders,” said Peters.

“This honour from the NOG is fulfilling, particularly coming from our peers and a reputable industry platform. We dedicate this award to the highly committed, talented and industrious people working at Aiteo and making things possible on a daily basis,” he added.

In the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arena, Aiteo gives back to the local communities in which it operates through grants and donations, seed capital and philanthropy. It has also supported several social investment projects, including special focus on supporting the study of Engineering in host communities and sports.

In sports, Aiteo has become the foremost financier of football in the country after a string of contributions to the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and the Super Eagles football tean.

To support local football, Aiteo took over the sponsorship of the Federation Cup, Nigeria’s oldest football tournament, now renamed Aiteo Cup. On the continental stage, Aiteo partnered with the Confederation of African Football(CAF) to sponsor the African Football Awards in January this year.
