The paper attempts to evaluate the Global economic crisis and the challenges to entrepreneurship development of technical vocational education and training in oil and gas sector of the Nigerian economy. Effects of the global melt down in the economics of developed countries of the world and its chain-link action has gradually enveloped the entire world economy. This development impacted negatively on the Nigerian economy coupled with the Niger Delta Crisis that has drastically affected oil and gas production and development of new fields with its attendant consequences. Accordingly, vocational and technical education institutions that undertake training of technicians in such enterprise as welders, electricians, pipe fitters including safety experts were affected as a result of global melt down, constraining the oil and gas companies from engaging the services of Technical Vocational Education and Training Professionals (TVET) in the energy sector.
