Energy & Infrastructure Sector
Nigeria’s power sector has been a reflection of the economic growth strategy of the country. Power is a strategic infrastructure and represents the most important requirement for moving the economy forward. In post-independence Nigeria, the need for large-scale investments in power infrastructure resulted in government dominance in the sector’s activities. The Nigerian energy sector presents a significant but largely untapped potential for investment. It has huge energy resources and a large domestic and regional market yearning to be served. Although the Nigerian energy sector has huge investment opportunities on all sides, the environment is fraught with risks that require careful navigation.
Entities doing or desirous of doing business in Nigeria therefore need to seek legal and transactions advice on the peculiarities of investing in Nigeria’s energy sector. At Bridgeforte Attorneys, we are our Client’s partner in seamlessly navigating investment decisions and procedure, as well as tackling any risk that may arise during licensing, mergers, acquisitions, and tax matters in the various facets making up Nigeria’s energy and infrastructure sectors.
