Knowledge, Awareness and Perception of National Gas Policy (NGP) 2017 among Oil and Gas Legal Experts in Nigeria

Dr Temilade O. Jolaosho

Abstract: Knowledge and experience are intrinsically connected. Studies have generally shown that knowledge, aw-areness and perceptions are directly proportional to the skills and experience of individuals in their respective disciplines. Propped on the theory of epistemology, this study was aimed at assessing the knowledge, awareness and perceptions of the oil and gas legal experts on the National Gas Policy (NGP) 2017. The knowledge assessment was carried out by compari-ng the correlation between academic qualification and years of experience of the experts on the Nigerian policy framework of the gas sector (with emphasis on the NGP 2017). The study highlights the attempts of the present policy framework at reducing gas flaring. Furthermore, the study found that there is no significant relationship between the years of experience and the knowledge of oil and gas experts on the NGP 2017,as some with less years of experience were found to be more kno-wledgeable about the policy. The existing gap in knowledge could be attributed to the absence of an in-depth knowledge of the oil and gas legal experts on some aspects of NGP 2017. The study therefore suggests a possible inclusion of advanced education on market based instruments in environmental law curriculum subsequently.
