In recognition of commitment to local content through the investment of $500 million into building the only 100 percent Nigerian private industrial free zone in West Africa Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL) won an award for outstanding performance at the 2016 edition of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas (USA).
Its Managing Director, Dr. Amy Jadesimi, was one of the few chief executive officers honoured as lead speaker during one of the panel sessions organised by the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) at the conference.
The OTC is one of the largest annual oil and gas gatherings attended by CEOs of energy firms and allied industries globally.
In a recent interview with BBC, Jadesimi said Nigeria had a lot to do in tackling graft and commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts.
