Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun (Fupre)- A brief history
Nigeria, a country rich in crude oil with millions of barrels of crude being produced daily, has had a gap in knowledge between the resources exploitation and the people who have in-depth experience of the crude and it resources. The need to bridge this gap brought about the creation of the first University of petroleum in the country. More so, the Federal government thought it would be a welcomed initiative to develop a specialised university that produces the required expertise for the Niger Delta natives and other country citizens in the oil and gas sector. The Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun (FUPRE) is located in delta state and is the only existing university of it’s kind in the country. This tertiary institution was established and approved by the nation’s federal executive council in a meeting held on the 14th of March, 2007. It subsequently became fully operational in 2008; admitting a few students. The university shared facilities with the Petroleum training institute until 2010, when it moved to its permanent campus at Ugbomro, in the Uvwie local government area of delta state.
Notably, the school is the first petroleum university in the whole of Africa and the sixth in the world and has earned a reputation for producing world-class students. The current Vice-chancellor of the school is Professor Akaehomen Okonigbon Akii Ibhadode
