The oil and gas industry encourages work–life balance amongst its professionals, hence the Young Professionals (YP) of the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE) and the African Region of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) led by Austin Mgbemere and Demola Lanisa respectively, had a Social Hangout at the Lekki Conservation Centre, Lagos on 18th March, 2017. This served as an avenue for the YPs to unwind, network with colleagues and senior professionals in the industry and also get prepared for the various programs which the YP arm of both associations would carry out for the year.
Activities during the networking event included welcome addresses, YP discussion sessions and a Tree House Challenge. The event was successful having created the platform for the YPs to have a great time with the senior professionals in their midst. This networking event was supported by AAPG Africa Region officials resident in Lagos.
