THE IMPACT OF ICT IN NIGERIAN OIL AND GAS SECTOR

 

ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to examine the impact of ICT in the Nigerian oil and gas sector with a particular focus to Shell Oil and Gas Company. The study brought to the fore critical issues relating to the ICTs prevailing in the oil industry. To achieve this objective, four research questions and two research hypotheses were formulated to guide this study. A well structured questionnaire was used as the major instrument to gather data from the 150 respondents in Shell Oil and Gas Company and a sample size of 109 was randomly selected using Taro Yamani formula. The data collected from the respondents were analyzed using simple percentages and t-test statistical analysis was employ for testing the hypotheses. The study concluded with some recommendations that appropriate laws should be enacted to protect Nigeria’s oil industry from foreign competitors, especially as local markets are open up to outside investment and there is need for the government to allocate special funds to its oil agencies annually or quarterly for the purchase of training facilities.
