- Reports (SNF) 
This report summarizes a study on private sector development in connection with the Nigerian upstream oil and gas industry. Three subprojects serve the basis for the report, whose task is to assess the enabling environment for private sector development in the Nigerian upstream petroleum industry and recommend ways of increasing and improving the capabilities of Nigerian supply and services companies. One subproject was undertaken by Kragha & Associates (K&A) in order to document the industrial base with regard to Nigeria's upstream oil and gas. The other subproject was carried through at Rogaland Research (RF), focusing on the industrial potential for Nigerian industry with regard to its domestic petroleum activities. The third project was undertaken at Institute for Research in Economics and Business Administration (SNF) applying a comparative and theoretical perspective on local industrial development related to upstream oil and gas. The three subprojects are summarized in this report, to form the basis for discussing trade-offs and dilemmas regarding the formulation and design of a policy to enhance sustainable industrial and economic growth.
